PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (WPEC) — A teacher in Port St. Lucie, Florida claims she was fired for refusing to give students partial credit for work that is never handed in.
I was packing my stuff, and I was not going to see the kids,” Diane Tirado said.
Mrs. Tirado didn’t get to say goodbye to her student physically, so she wrote her message on a whiteboard instead.
I have been fired for refusing to give you a 50% for not handing anything in.
The 52-year-old began working at West Gate K-8 School this year as an eighth-grade social studies teacher.
She says she gave her students two weeks to complete an explorer’s notebook project but says some of them didn’t turn it in. »
