I had a crush on several of my grammar school teachers in my day I admit. I guess I hit puberty early. I would stare at the teachers with the tight skirts and revealing tops all day. However I'm not sure how I would have reacted or have even known what I was looking at if my teacher sent me home with a sex tape:
A local teacher accidentally put pornography into a DVD that was meant to be filled with school memories from the past year, and nobody caught the error until after it was sent home, shocking parents and students alike.
Parents of students who attend Isabelle Jackson Elementary said that the woman is a good teacher, but just made a mistake that may become the most embarrassing moment of their life.
The offending DVD starts with a menu screen that displays various school trips and functions, and when you click on one of them, you see kids in a classroom sharing stories. They start clapping, then the video suddenly cuts to sex.
I probably would have stared for as long as possible before my mother would have jumped in front of the television to block my view. My mother also would have raised high hell the next day, while my father would have played the "I'm outraged role" while requesting to privately view what made my mom was so upset.
“It goes from my son, straight to her on the couch,” said ‘Joe,’ who saw the video along with his son and did not wish to be identified. “My son’s reaction was, ‘Dad, is that Ms. Defanti?’”
“We were up till midnight doing the ‘birds and the bees,’” he added.
The person in the video turned out to be Isabelle Jackson Elementary fifth grade teacher Crystal Defanti.
“All she could say was that it was a horrible mix up,” Joe said.
The teacher called his home the day after his child got the DVD, crying hysterically, profusely apologizing and asking the man and his wife to call every parent they knew to stop their kids from seeing the DVD too.
The Elk Grove Unified School District says they are investigating, but legal experts say it's unlikely that the teacher will lose her job.
"It's felony stupid, but it's not a crime," said defense expert Ken Rosenfeld. "Is it something that she should be disciplined for? Absolutely, but fired for? She didn't intend for this to happen."
Joe doesn't care if the teacher keeps her job, he'd just like some help from the school.
"Maybe offer some sort of counseling for my children, ask me how my children are doing," he said. "I want somebody to ask me the kind of questions my kids are asking me."
School officials say a new DVD will be sent to students once it has been reviewed.
I'm not sure this is something that I would want her to be fired over. I would however have her transferred to another school and definitely have a counselor talk to the kids. Sadly the little video these kids were able to view is nothing compared to what they have access to on the internet or at their local library.
