MONTGOMERY, Alabama (WSFA) – Montgomery Public Schools are investigating a “allegedly inappropriate incident” but will not say much more.
Over the past few days, WSFA 12 News has received calls from parents who said a teacher at Goodwyn Middle School was seen naked during a Zoom video call with students last week.
Goodwyn Middle School is in distance learning until Tuesday due to COVID-19 cases.
Michaele Wright’s 13-year-old daughter attends school. Wright said her daughter was not on the phone but had friends who were.
She said word of the alleged incident spread throughout the school.
“I’m just disgusted with the whole situation,” Wright said. “They shouldn’t have to be exposed to things like that. I don’t know what the school system plans to do about it, but I don’t think it should be back in a school at all. “
“I’m very angry about this and we’re going to have to do something,” she added.
WSFA 12 News contacted MPS for information, and we were told that “MPS has been made aware of a suspected inappropriate incident and has opened an investigation into it. We will take appropriate action once the investigation is complete.
When asked if this teacher is still employed at the school, a spokesperson for MPS said he could not comment.
It is not known whether the alleged incident was intentional or accidental, but Wright said such errors cannot occur.
“You are a role model, a teacher, so you shouldn’t put yourself in certain situations,” Wright said. “I mean why would you want to come to your room or any part of your house with your laptop or anything open knowing that you have a bunch of kids on Zoom. Could you make this mistake? If you make a mistake like this, you don’t need this type of work.
The WSFA has also contacted MPD to see if it is investigating. A spokesperson referred questions to MPS.
