Teacher put on leave after assignment about masturbation
California High School Teacher Put on Leave for Masturbation Essay
James Logan High School teacher, Tom Mijares, has been placed on leave, pending an investigation, for posting an assignment which included an essay that graphically described 9-year-old girls watching a grown man masturbate until completion.
Libs of TikTok received a copy of the 10th grade assignment from an anonymous source.
Grammatically incorrect, the essay read:
“Our 9-year-old eyes followed hairy hippie butt cracked mildew showered stall [sic]. Lather from watered down No More Tears trickled down to the body parts we were much too young to pronounce [sic]. He loved to wash ‘down there,’ you know it. And he'd yank up his droopy it thing to soap up pink, furry private flesh.”
As if that wasn’t disturbing enough, the essay continued:
“He kept yanking and pulling, pulling and yanking, and slowly, like Tia Annie's Boston terrier, it stood up, stood out, stood red, different from any other body part we'd ever seen in our lives…suddenly, like the volcano in the film we saw in Mr. Larkey’s geography class, it exploded…Thick twinky cream ringlets spurred it here, there, everywhere.”
In a bizarre attempt to normalize the assignment, students were instructed to describe “what is going on in this short story” by using lines from the text to support their response, identify unfamiliar vocabulary words and explain “the importance of routine in your everyday lives.”
James Lohan principal, Ron Polk, sent a memo to families and staff to address the “inappropriate” assignment. He wrote, “Late last week, the district became aware of an assignment posted by a teacher at James Logan high school which was completely inappropriate for K-12 students.” Polk also stated that Mijares, who has been with the school district for nine years, is on leave until a comprehensive investigation is completed.
When Libs of TikTok reached out to James Logan High School for a statement we received a response from New Haven Unified School District Superintendent, John Thompson in which he too expressed his outrage. However, as of today, Mijares is still listed on the James Logan High School staff directory.
