A MENASHA WISCONSIN PARENT IS UPSET BECAUSE HER SIX YEAR OLD DAUGHTER SAYS SHE WAS KICKED IN THE BACK BY HER TEACHER FROM CLOVIS GROVE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Dear Tory Lowe
My name is Carlita Wright. My daughter’s name is Isryia Wright. She is six years old an attends Clovis Grove elementary School located in Menasha Wisconsin. My child’s has two teachers Mrs. Gus & Mrs. Gifford. Two weeks ago my daughter told me about a third altercation she had with Mrs Gus. Isryia stated that she was sitting on the carpet during story time rocking back and forth.
Apparently Mrs. Gus was irritated from Isryia rocking(while sitting behind her), which caused her to kick Isryia in the back. I immediately went up to the school, and spoke with the principal. The principal said she was going to investigate the situation.
I never heard from the teacher nor the principal for 2 days. Isryia came home the following day saying that Mrs. Gus approached her asking her “why did she tell her mom that.” She then told my baby “everything she does for or to Isryia is out of love.” With this being the third incident with the same teacher, I was even more furious with her approaching my daughter while being investigated.
I went back up to the school and set up a meeting with Mrs. Giffer, the principal, the investigator from the school board, my mother Marilyn, and myself. Mrs. Gus wasn’t present for any of the meetings which is odd to me. My daughter told the investigator the story three times and hasn’t changed her story once. The school has switched her classroom and Mrs. Gus isn’t supposed to have any contact with Isryia while the situation is under investigation.
It has been two weeks since the investigation started, and I still haven’t heard from anyone!
I am reaching out to you today because I don’t want these incidents just to be swept under the rug. My daughter needs to know that it isn’t all right to be hit by any teacher or anybody in general. There are a handful of black kids in the school, and Isryia happens to be the only minority in her class. My daughter and all children need to know that kids do have a voice.
👑: This is very disturbing to hear. I will be looking into this. If this teacher has done this she needs to be investigated properly and certainly not be around any child if found guilty. Please share this and keep this family in your prayers.🙏🏾
