The post read:

“I’d like to go on a short, but effective, killing spree. My children* are INSANE! (*school and home)”

Superintendent Wayne Anderson told WITI an investigation is underway to determine if the teacher posted the threat on Facebook. The teacher is now out of the classroom for the rest of the school year.

Superintendent Anderson would not say whether the teacher has resigned.

The district’s teachers union president says the teacher in question was sent home for the rest of the week. She has been with the school for 11 years.
