A Poopy Pants Whodunit: Collinsville Teacher Fired After Fecal Investigation

I did a doodle, teacher!
An elementary school teacher just got kicked out of the classroom for good at Webster Elementary in Collinsville. His crime?

As KTVI Fox2Now tells it, a little stankee-doodle was found on the floor among a half dozen third- and fourth-graders. The teacher decided that whoever had the accident should go to the nurse.

So he had all of them go into the bathroom, take off their underwear, put their clothes back on, reemerge and show him their undies.  (The students took off their clothes in a stall; the teacher waited outside the bathroom.)

The kids weren't exposed to the teacher, no kids were hurt, and nothing criminal took place. And yet, the teacher will only be allowed to do non-classroom activities for the rest of the year, and will then be let go in the summer.

One parent told KTVI she was "absolutely freaking livid," because what the teacher did embarrassed the kids.

Perhaps. But a firing offense?

Call the nurse or someone who is "trusted" in working with this type of situation. I dont think the investigation should have been held soley by the teacher. Always have someone with you to help legitimize your course of action IMO.


If the special-ed kid had been allowed to sit in their own feces all day the parent would have been livid at that! How exactly was the teacher supposed to find the kid with crap in their pants? One would think that the kid at fault would have fessed up when faced with having to show the evidence. I feel for the teacher and think the parent who was outraged needs to up their meds.


it is possible, however, that the teacher loves the sweet smell of buttnectar in the morning.


he should be canned not because of the way he investigated (well unless he sniffed the underwear), but because he is a dumb ass if he thinks that checking their underwear proves who dun it. Dumb shit should have just punished the whole class. Is it fair, nope, but certainly one of those little dudes would have ratted the culprit out.


Nurses are not just allowed to check underwear either, I cant believe the amount of people who think that would be acceptable.
