Wisconsin Middle School Teacher Resigns Over Students’ Out-of-Control Abusive Behavior

GREEN BAY, Wisc. — A Wisconsin teacher has resigned from her job in providing emotional testimony about the increasingly out-of-control violent and sexually harassing behavior of students, which she believes is a threat to the safety of both students and staff.

“I must resign even though I have a broken heart, because I cannot survive in this unhealthy and unsafe environment any longer,” Washington Middle School sixth grade teacher Kerstin Westcott told the Green Bay School Board on June 5.

“We are in danger every day [that] we show up to our school. Students and staff are physically, verbally, emotionally, mentally and sexually abused every single day in the building,” she lamented. “This environment cannot be allowed to continue.”

Wescott, who has worked as a teacher for twelve years—nine of them at the middle school—and is a Golden Apple Award recipient, says she has watched student behavior increasingly worsen over the past five years, and especially this past school year.

She said that teachers are daily cursed at and called “vile, crude and sexual names.” She offered copies of a page-long list of remarks that students had made in just the last two days.

“I wanted you to feel how we feel when these things are said to us,” Wescott lamented, advising that the statements were so bad they couldn’t be repeated out loud. “Ultimately, you have to know that these things are said to your employees and your children—all day, every day.”

Wescott noted that some teachers have been injured trying to break up physical fights, including one teacher who was taken away in an ambulance just two weeks prior.

“Another teacher was physically attacked by students trying to set off a deadly allergic reaction on purpose, causing her throat to close and her to struggle to breathe,” she mourned.

Wescott outlined that she had instructed her students not to answer the classroom door because some truant children walk the halls looking for fights.

“They pound on our doors, shake our door handles, scream swear words into our vents, punch and kick the doors, and terrorize us while we try to teach and learn,” she explained.

Wescott also said there have been numerous instances of sexual harassment of students by their peers, and recounted a recent incident where a student flagrantly exposed himself in front of staff members and then laughed at the teachers’ reactions.

Some students, the teacher outlined, are selling drugs or bringing weapons onto the premises, and some have started fires or threatened other violence.

“Just last week a student told multiple people multiple times that ‘I’m going to shoot up everyone in this school,'” she grieved. “Is it going to take someone getting killed for you to finally take the drastic action that is needed?”

Wescott said that while the increased presence of school authorities have helped curb the chaos, it is insufficient, and urged administrators to take drastic action. She noted that because of the ongoing out-of-control behavior of students, the work environment is so “toxic” that it is literally making teachers sick, and some are on medication to cope.

“One of my teachers wakes up every single Sunday night around 2 a.m. and throws up in anticipation of the work week starting,” Wescott said. “I comfort co-workers who are crying daily. … We exhibit symptoms of PTSD because we live in trauma from 7:30 to 3:00 every day.”

View Wescott’s emotional testimony in full below.

Last week, Superintendent Dr. Michelle Langenfeld issued a statement to ensure the community that safety is a priority for the school district and that Wescott’s concerns were taken seriously. Langenfeld said that efforts had been underway to address student behavior, and that further action will be implemented.

“As concerns emerged in the winter of 2017, a district office student success team was created … [which meets] with Washington Middle School administrators on a regular basis to continue to strategize how to best support staff and students,” the statement read in part. “These supports were implemented due to our recognition that additional resources were required to address student academic and behavior needs at Washington Middle School.”

“In early May, the Board of Education and administration became aware of the growing staff concerns similar to those shared by Ms. Westcott in June,” Langenfeld continued. “Upon learning of these concerns, the Board of Education and District Administration took the concerns very seriously.”

She said that she had been told by other teachers that recent administrative efforts helped to improve the learning environment.

“Due to our observations and staff reporting improvement in student behavior based on the actions taken in the spring, the district will continue and expand our support of the efforts [put into place],” Langenfeld said. “The district’s plan for next school year, with input from staff and community, includes additional school administrators and staff to provide support with counseling, ELL and special education services, family engagement, and student behaviors.”

    You could continually threaten children with eternal damnaiton.

    If that doesn’t work, perhaps — starting in pre-school — we begin each day with half an hour of stretching and relaxation.

    • Danfire

      LOL! No, they need to have their A*** whipped! And, they should have been told ‘NO’, with meaning, years ago!

    • Grace Kwon

      Children need Biblical teaching which is the truth. Stretching and relaxing alone only makes selfish human beings. Meaninglessness and immorality makes violent children.

      • John Connor

        Wrong. My children are wonderful , make good grades, and are very moral …all without your bible.
        You need to read a biology text as humans are animals.

        • Grace Kwon

          Support of infanticide and Sodomy is not moral at all. Humans are created in the image of the Creator. Those who claim humans are animals do that in the hope of getting away God’s judgment. Reality is not that. Hebrews 9.

          • John Connor

            Science shows that we belong to the group animalia. No mythical creatures necessary. That is reality.

            Who said that my kids support that?

          • Grace Kwon

            Science can’t explain why humans acknowledge God. You indoctrinated your kids to support abortion and homosexual immorality.

          • John Connor

            Nope. My kids were raised exposed to religion. They’re wonderful people. You don’t know my kids and your comments aren’t very christian. You should keep your comments about others kids to yourself.

          • Sisyphus

            Neuroscientists and psychologists have identified parts of the temporal lobe and parietal lobe where the human brain supports the idea of some divine power (god) as an evolved survival mechanism. In other words, humans created god to help keep society functioning and aid in survival.

            What a load of crap.

          • Sisyphus

            Looking in a mirror?

          • Grace Kwon

            No, it is the built-in knowledge of the Creator God given by Him so that we would worship Him. God created humans. Genes unique to humans are another proof. AI will scorn the evil lying atheistic humans.

          • Sisyphus

            Nice little myths/lies you tell yourself. Your god doesn’t exist, and that book you seem to love is useless.

            The robots humans would make. Humans are far more complicated than robots. It is stupid and evil of the atheists to deny the existence of the Creator God. Psalm 14.

          • Mary Spangenberg

            No worries Sisyphus. Don’t bother. Grace would not believe you no matter what proof you put in front of her. She clearly does not know the law nor understand history nor this problem. In fact the no photo pretty much means means Troll.

            Maybe a law class will help ya out? If that does not help I can send you a history book on how much death, evil and destruction has been caused and done in the name of God and religion. Anyway stay on topic. This is an issue of people having kids who should not be having kids.

          • Grace Kwon

            Atheists and humanists killed the most. Religions can be abused wrongly, but the atheists and humanists exist to kill and destroy. Psalm 14.

        Children need Biblical teaching which is the truth

        Why do children need Biblical teaching?
        (and addressing the ambiguity of that sentence) How do we determine whose Bible and whose teaching is “truth”?

        Stretching and relaxing alone only makes selfish human beings.

        How do you explain that? It would seem an emotionally relaxed person would be less-inclined to poor impulse control.

        How does a half-hour of stretching and relaxing, preclude anything else?

        Meaninglessness and immorality makes violent children.

        How does stretching and relaxing impart meaningless and immorality?

        [C]hildren need the Biblical instructions to behave humanely.

        I don’t see how that statement is in the least bit accurate.

        • Grace Kwon

          1) The Holy Bible is only one in the world and it alone teaches salvation and sane wholesome morality. The study of the entire Book is singluar. God’s teaching is the truth. Jesus Christ is the life-giving Truth. John 14.

          2) Note the word “alone” in the quoted statement. Read things more carefully. Physical wellness does not bring respect; God’s Word alone does. Read Matthew chapter 4. Godless secularism brings only despair. Pre-christian is barbaric and Post-christian is immoral. Judeo-Christian value alone is pure and right and respectful and healthy.

    • Amos Moses – He>i

      ROTFL ….. oh ….. you were serious … werent you …….. yes …. making the children more self indulgent ….. that will fix everything …… ROTFL …………

      • John Connor

        It makes way more sense to threaten them with a mythical boogeyman and eternal pain and suffering..,.,sarcasm off….

        • Grace Kwon

          It’s the perfect justice for unrepentant sinners. You must repent your evil to get saved. Read the Gospels in the Holy Bible.

    • Robert

      That’s the problem even in their 30,s and 40,s there still stretching and relaxing in stead of getting a Job.

  • Thereals

    For their next assignment, they should read Heart of Darkness.

    • Grace Kwon

      The most evil person in that book is the main character. The widow and everyone else had a right to the whole truth at the end. His silence made the darkness utterly darker.

      • Thereals

        My point was, maybe it will teach them some empathy for the trauma they have inflicted upon this poor teacher. But mainly it was a joke. I doubt it would have that effect.

        • Grace Kwon

          Paganism is darkness and Western secularism is immorality. Christianity is light and purity.

    • Jason Todd

      The horror. The horror.

      • Grace Kwon

        Man’s sinfulness is reality.

  • MCrow

    Wisconsin also decided that it was going to reduce funding to its education system, including special needs students. They’ve also alienated teachers to the point where they have to hire people who don’t have actual teacher qualifications. This strikes me as ‘reap what you sow.’

    • Mary Spangenberg

      Az too. It is a total disaster. Many are fleeing quickly overseas.

      • MCrow

        As a teacher who did flee overseas…I would say I kinda agree. I plan to go back to it, though. I plan on being overworked with a lot of things not related to teaching, but it’s the only thing I’ve found that I really enjoy

      • Grace Kwon

        USA needs Christianity for sane morality. USA has no other morality.

    • michael louwe

      Like “insolvent/bankrupt” Illinois, California, New York and New Jersey, Wisconsin is a liberal Blue State who has been wasting public money buying votes, esp from the minorities, eg by providing easy and generous welfare benefits to single Black welfare queens with 5 kids from 5 different boyfriends, giving spousal benefits to married same-sex couples, giving exorbitant pay and pensions to unionized state employees, etc.

      Like the saying goes, “reap what you sow”, ie vote-buying liberal Blue States having to cut back on public spending because of insolvency.

      • MCrow

        …Wisconsin has Scott Walker as governor, is majority Republican, voted for Trump, and has numerous conservative policies. At best, it is a split state. Also, I don’t normally do this, but your comment singles out ‘black welfare queens’ and minorities. I fail to see how Christianity is supposed to see race as a factor, so I hope your views don’t reflect the community

        • michael louwe

          Fyi, this news article is mainly about public education and politics; not about religion or Christianity.
          .
          .
          From Wikipedia; …….

          “Wisconsin has voted for Democratic candidates in six of the last seven presidential elections.”
          .
          “Swing to the right;
          With the election of Scott Walker, Republicans won both chambers of the
          legislature and the governorship, the first time all three changed
          partisan control in the same election. They have maintained that status
          since 2010. Following the 2014 general election on November 4, 2014, the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, State Attorney General and State
          Treasurer are all Republicans; the Secretary of State is a Democrat. The state also chose the Republican candidate for President in 2016, Donald Trump, for the first time since 1984.”
          _ _ _ _ _ _ _

          The liberal disease from neighbouring Blacks-infested Illinois has infected Wisconsin for many years, ie from the 1980s to the 2010s. It will take years for Wisconsin to recover from the damage done by the liberals.

          • MCrow

            This is a Christian news site, is it not? And I was always told Christianity needs to be more than just a Sunday activity.

            “Blacks-infested.” You aren’t even going to try to mask your racism, eh?

          • michael louwe

            It’s truth-telling and not racist to point out that Blacks have a preponderance for crime, social misbehaviour, thug-rap music and most Black neighbourhoods are infested with crime and gangsters. Just look at Black Africa.
            ……. Similarly, it is not racist to point out that many mosques are infested with Muslim radicals and nearly all terrorists today are Muslims.

            It is also truth-telling and not racist to point out that Blacks excel in physical sports, eg the NBA, NFL, boxing, 100m sprint, etc.

          • MCrow

            Racism is, quite literally, saying that people are predisposed based on race. So yes, everything you just said is, by definition, racist. Just as it would be racist to say that Asian women are all quiet and demure and white men are predisposed toward shooting children in schools. Neither is true but just a stereotype made by others to make themselves feel superior.

            Side note: infestation is how the Nazis would refer to Jews. There is a reason: you don’t want to think of those people as people.

          • michael louwe

            Did I say ALL Blacks.?

            The racism-card is just a political tool for the White liberals of the Blue States to pander for the votes of Blacks, Hispanics and other minorities. It’s like a Mafia protection-racket, eg the liberals protect the Blacks against “racism” in exchange for their votes.

            Is it racist or misogynist to point out that most Nobel Prize winners are White men, and not Blacks or women.? Is it racist to point out that Asians tend to be good at maths in school.?
            ……. Seems, the liberals will always call out the racism-card whenever any negative truths are pointed out at their voter-base.

          • MCrow

            You are correct again. Don’t know if you are from Green Bay but… East Green Bay High School, ( which is where most of these middle school students will be going after middle school), Is kitty-corner from Washington Middle School. Suddenly, don’t know if it was this year or last year, East High declared itself a fine arts school and has a fine arts logo/ wording on the side of the building. Many student can benefit from this but…..I think they are mostly accommodating minority students because when they do excel at something it is often in the area of the fine arts.

    Sodom’s children attack the adults. USA needs Christian education to be civilized.

    • John Connor

      Since the majority of Americans identify as christian, the majority of these children come from christian homes. You need to rethink your nonsensical post

      • Grace Kwon

        Having the name alone is futile. It was that way before, but too many of today’s Americans disrespect Christianity whether they claim to be Christian or not. Playboys and prostitutes are traitors and do not respect anyone or anything noble. The Muslim population is a blessing to all rich secular nations. People need to face real crises to be made humane, not the constant presence of only the gentle sweet Christians. Sodomy-supporting is not of Christianity; that makes many of today’s Americans practically Non-christian.

          • John Connor

            The Bible isn’t necessary except for those who believe in it. Anyone who can read know of the horrors of the past. Show me where atheists in America are reigning horror upon others? Being an atheist no more makes them a horrible person anymore than being a Christian makes one just like the crowd at Westboro

    • alenic

      Grace, the US is a land of religious freedoms. You are free to send your children to a Christian school (or keep them at home where you only teach them the world of God). However, your warped beliefs have no place in MY children’s curriculum.

            “Students’ out-of-control abusive behavior” is because America rejected God’s teaching. Read the Word of God and repent and live.

            “You have done all this wickedness; yet do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart. And do not turn aside; for then you would go after empty things which cannot profit or deliver, for they are nothing. For the Lord will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you His people.

            Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way. Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. But if you still do wickedly, you shall be swept away, both you and your king.” ( 1 Samuel chapter 15)

For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” (Romans 3)

      • Grace Kwon

        “For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6)

  • michael louwe

    This kind of lawlessness is the result of the LIBERALS in the Blue States pandering for the votes of Blacks, Hispanics and other minorities, in order to defeat the majority-Whites during national/Federal elections. It’s like spoiling school-kids or letting them riot, in order to get them to vote for you or to like you.
    ……. Hence, we had the recent BLM riots, lootings, vandalism, arson, etc in Ferguson and Baltimore, and the prosecution/persecution of mostly White police officers.

    IOW, the liberals are fearful of losing minority-votes if they allowed their Law Enforcement Authorities(LEAs) to clamp down on Black and Hispanic thugs/gangsters/trouble-makers in schools or on the streets.
    ……. Instead, the liberals clamp down on the LEAs and vainly try to use compassionate or bleeding-heart counselling/non-forceful/non-violent methods to solve the law enforcement problem in schools and on the streets.

    • Michael C

      Wisconsin voted Trump. Brown County went to Trump. Brown County is whiter than the U.S. at large. There have been BLM protests in Green Bay but they’ve been peaceful. It seems like you’re trying to blame racial minorities for the problems in this middle school.

      • Thereals

        Michael do you know the race of the kids who are performing all these physical and sexual assaults? Or their parents’ political leanings? If not, your statistics prove nothing.

      • Reason2012

        here have been BLM protests in Green Bay but they’ve been peaceful.

        BLM calls for dead police officers – that’s not “peaceful”. Police officers have thus been_assassinated, including just yesterday – not_killed in the line of duty, but_assassinated. To defend the movement that’s factually one of the root causes of such evil is despicable.

        And those who voted for Hillary have been rioting and violently attacking Trump supporters ever since across the country, using violence and hate to shut down all dissenting opinions even at colleges, and continue to boldly call for violence against our President. To defend that is despicable as well.

      • michael louwe

        That’s because the population of Blacks in Green Bay is much smaller compared to Ferguson and Baltimore, ie much lesser number of Black thugs, gangsters and trouble-makers in Green Bay.

        Maybe most of the Blacks could not withstand the hardship of severe winter in Green Bay.
        ……. Notice that most of the liberal Blue States are located in the colder North = lesser Black population. So, the liberals could afford to be liberal, inclusive, socialist and be judgmental of the Southern conservatives and their practice of slavery during the 1800s and discrimination during the 1900s.

        • Michael C

          Soon, the liberals of the Blue States will get a taste of their own medicine.

          The way you word it, it almost seems as if you think that black people are some sort of punishment on us white folk.

          I would rather be the only white person on the planet than be associated with a person like you.

          • michael louwe

            It is a fact that in USA, neighbourhoods are either mostly White or mostly Black, even in the liberal Blue States = liberals are hypocrites = similar to voluntary segregation.
            ……. Maybe, you love to associate with Blacks and live in Black neighbourhoods or associate with Muslims and live under Sharia Law, eg love to live in Dearborn, Michigan or ISIS-held Syria.

        I live within walking distance of this school. My kids went here years ago. Two grandchildren went there-parents moved to get out of district and one switched to a different school in the district. The teachers are not the problem. Money is not the problem. The problem is the inner city of Chicago moved here and brought their problems with them and are not interested in changing their ways. This use to be a pretty good school but in the last few years-no. Last year I went to the office to pick up grandchild for my son. I do not want to do this ever again. ” minority” student in office waiting to see VP- mouthing off and cussing at the office staff. My grandkids who do not go there anymore said it’s mostly uncontrollable black kids doing most of this all day in every class. Disruptive, foul-mouthed, starting fights, etc. Not my words-the kids told me.

    • Alice

      As someone who lives in this school district I can tell you that you are 100% correct. Everyone in this area knows it and it is one of the reasons why this teacher did not read the list she wrote of all the specific incidents that took place. One of my kids moved out of the district so my grandkids would not have to go there. Another one switched to a different school in the district.

  • Becky

    Those are the consequences of entrusting your children into the hands of a worldly government system.

    Almighty God commanded parents to teach their children His word (Deut6:7). There’s nothing more valuable that could ever be learnt than God’s word (2Tim3:16,17), most especially for a child, “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6.

    • james blue

          Really? Can you list off the specific classes on the curriculum that teach this?

  • FoJC

    It’s just a business to most. Shuffle the students through, look for a few standouts, work towards a promotion out of the chaos. Unless what the resigning teacher said was inaccurate, it’s obvious these people are oblivious to their failings as educators.

    People need to realize that this type of school environment isn’t new. It’s been like this is many places and different places for decades.

    • Grace Kwon

      US government should pay for Christian schools entirely. Public schools are occupied with godlessness and immorality.

      • FoJC

        They would have to pay for all religious schools then (Constitution), and they can’t manage the money they now have in a proper fashion. If they paid for them, then they would be gov’t run schools. We have that already, and it isn’t working very well in most places.

        Like government, schools are a reflection of society.

          Government should not support atheism or immorality. They should pay for all schools and colleges.

          • Sedagive

            Government doesn’t support atheism exclusively. The government is secular, which means it supports no religion exclusively.

      Why are you blaming the schools and teachers for the bad behavior? The problem lays with the parents.

  • Reason2012

    They kids are actually being honest: they’re acting out the anti-God, anti-Christ lies they’re being taught:

    – that life is meaningless
    – human beings are not special
    – your life is no better than any other animal
    – when you die it’s over
    – survival of the fittest just like all animals
    – natural selection, just like all animals
    – there’s no accountability to anything after we die.
    – me, me, me

    And we continue to see the results.

    But judgment is coming for us all – our lifetime of breaking God’s laws and our refusal to have God “forgive and forget”, rejecting His offer of forgiveness.

    For those who can sense this in their heart, can sense in their heart the evil that is flourishing while the truth of God is silenced, just pick up your Bible and start reading it again – daily. Start with the gospels. All things will be set right – evil has lost. Start living now for God / Jesus Christ and not for the things of this world that will all be passing away. Get into a Bible-believing church that preaches out of the Bible and teaches about what the verses mean.

    “[Jesus said] And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness [on a wooden pole], even so must the Son of man be lifted up [on the cross]: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
    And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved [exposed]. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”

    John 3:14-21

    To believe on Christ is to follow Him day after day – to have a change of mind about his world: to turn away from it and turn back towards God / Christ. May God / Jesus Christ be glorified.

      If they’re acting all this out, it’s from home teachings that they got from home. Don’t blame the schools for bad parenting.

      • Reason2012

        Not blaming those specific teachers – blaming school / indoctrination system in general for teaching ALL kids that

        – life is meaningless
        – human beings are not special
        – your life is no better than any other animal
        – when you die it’s over
        – survival of the fittest just like all animals
        – natural selection, just like all animals
        – there’s no accountability to anything after we die.
        – me, me, me

        Parents at home can expose those lies and hence yes, parents have a duty to correct these lies their kids are being taught. But those lies came from schools / media to begin with.

          Where in the curriculum does the school system teach any of that?

  • Robert

    In Wisconsin many kids go to christian schools that are top notch for free. Wels operates the 4th largest parochial school system in the USA .Wels church’s often pay the whole thing for a Wels child when that childs church is large enough to finance them .Perhaps other christian denominations that don’t operate christian schools could finance their children so they could go to a wels school also. Wels teachers graduate from Dr Martin Luther college in new elm. Perhaps also Wisconsin Lutheran college. And Bethany Lutheran the little norsk synod’s college.

  • Robert

    If your christian church is big why not invest in your youth send those kids to a Christian school . you might some day get some great pastors all because you did.

  • Lydia Church

    Society is going to hell in a handbasket.
    Students are evil, sadistical, malicious, hateful, abusive bullies who need to not be
    ‘spared the rod’ as the Bible says. But they took discipline out of the school, they took God out of it too, and now we have a society where mom’s are working, there is no supervision for them, there is poverty, there are drugs, abusive homes, and violence is glorified every day in the culture on TV and computer games and music, movies, etc. as well as sex and all rebellious, deviant and defiant behavior. You have the glamourization of sin on top of it all, and false ideology being taught (false religions, paganism, evolution, etc.). Add to that the fact that most administrations do absolutely NOTHING to defend teachers against this onslaught of abuse but even worse, they just advocate all for the students, give them a slap on the wrist, and come in with some more ‘self help’ garbage for them that does nothing at all, it’s just a bunch of empty measures and BS. THAT is what is wrong, and I left as well on permanent strike as a result, and I’m a gifted educator. Don’t hold your breath that they will fix anything. These kids are terrorists.

    As one of the steps to resolve the issue the school is installing You Get it First alert software. It gives teachers more control in the classroom.
