Florida Kindergarten Teacher Upset Because He Thinks He Can’t Talk About His Love Life With Students
Why are you so eager to discuss your private life with kids? I taught high school and my bosses discouraged us from talking about our private life with students.
These people have not read the Parental Rights in Education bill. It says you cannot teach kids about sexual identity or gender whatever. It certainly doesn’t ban teachers from talking about what they did on the weekend whether they’re straight or gay.
The bill also doesn’t have the word gay in it. I’m so sick of these people.
Florida kindergarten teacher Cory Bernaert whined because he is worried the bill will prevent him from discussing his weekend plans with his partner with his students:
“Absolutely. You are 100 percent correct. That’s what we do as educators, we build relationships with our kids. And in order to build relationships you talk about your home life, you talk about what you do on the weekends, that’s building community. It scares me that I am not going to be able to have these conversations with my children because they’re going to ask me what I did on the weekend. I don’t have to hide that my partner and I went paddle boarding this weekend. Because then they ask, what does partner mean, Mr. Bernaert? And I am worried can I tell them what it means. I’m also worried for my kids. I have a little girl from this year who has two moms and the kids are curious about her two moms. They want to know about her two moms. If they go to her and ask her about her two moms and she doesn’t know what to say, they’re going to come to me and ask me. And then, you know, so what do I do? It just — it opens up for patients to really take some legal action against the school and teachers.”

Yes, dude, you can talk about what you and your partner did this past weekend with your students.
But did your teachers talk about their private life with you? When I taught the school told me not to do that, even about anything I did on breaks or on the weekend. I taught high school English, not little kids.DONATE
