A mom in a Houston suburb was shocked when she received a text from her autistic son's teacher calling him a "mother f*cker" and complaining about his behavior.
Fort Worth's Star-Telegram reported that Tiffany Elfstrom was "disgusted and disappointed" by the text she got from 13-year-old Jayden's teacher. In a Facebook post featuring a screenshot of the texts, Elfstrom noted that the teacher also has a 6-year-old autistic child.
"This lil mother f*cker is crying like a baby for mommy because he wants to go home," the text from the unnamed teacher reads. She went on to said she wants to "pull all my d*mn hair out," likely out of frustration from working with the special needs student.
"I just want to cry because I have put my most precious possession in this teacher's hands this whole school year," Elfstrom wrote. "To see this is how she thinks and feels for and about autistic children... The worst part is... Her 6 year old child is autistic as well!!"
The Star-Telegram reported that the teacher was fired from her job at Levi Fry Intermediate School, within Texas City Independent School District. Elfstrom told local news station KPRC that the teacher claimed she meant to send the message to herself — but the concerned mother didn't buy the excuse.
"She told me that she was trying to text herself," the mother said. "Now, I'm not tech savvy or smart, but I'm not tech stupid either."
