Teachers are expected to model good behaviour for their students, but this teacher seems worse than any naughty student! In fact she’s the definition of a bad teacher.
High school teacher Jennifer Elizabeth Green-Johnson allegedly thought it was acceptable to tell a student, “Why don’t you lick me where I fart.” Wait, WHAT??
You can’t blame teachers for having the occasional bad day, but according to a notice of hearing from the Ontario College of Teachers, this incident is far from isolated when it comes to Green-Johnson.
A litany of offensive behaviour
Her lack of professionalism led her to be suspended for 30 days last January for misconduct. Some of the most recent allegations against her include:

When Green-Johnson was offered muffins by a student in exchange for a passing grade, she allegedly replied, “You mean a bribe? I’d be able to shit for a week ‘cause of all that fiber.”
Within the 2015-2016 school year, Green-Johnson also allegedly said, “Get that f*cking thing out of here” to a student who brought in coffee; told a student, “I have never said this to a student before but fuck you;” and said, “It’s debate, not masturbate,”
Not a fave with the students
And it seems her students aren’t very fond of her either, rating her poorly on the ratemyteachers.com website.
One comment from 2015: “Awful teacher. Bully to all students thought [sic] years. Swears at students all the time, and laughs if you don’t know the correct answer.”
And from 2004: “Very unprofessional…..She should never be allowed to teach ever again…she is worse than a bully… immature.”
Why just a slap on the wrist?
And, according to the Brantford Expositor, Green-Johnson regularly fronts the Ontario College of Teachers and the Grand Erie District School Board’s disciplinary committees.
She’s had unsubstantiated charges from 2007, and has been repeatedly served with disciplinary letters and suspended without pay.
She is currently suspended without pay… again. How many chances are they going to give this so called teacher? The hearing to determine if Green-Johnson is guilty of the charges will take place on September 23.
