Teacher under investigation after allegedly including question on pronouns in mandatory assignment
Fifteen and 16-year-olds at a Florida high school were allegedly able to earn their first points of the year by completing an assignment that asked what their preferred pronouns are and whether their parents know about them, according to a worksheet obtained exclusively by Libs of TikTok.
The worksheet titled “Get To Know Me” asks students some normal questions such as “What are your goals?” and “What are your expectations of this class?” However, one question insinuated that students can share their “preferred pronouns” without their parents finding out.
“Who are you? Tell me what makes you, you,” the sheet reads. “What pronouns do you prefer? Can I use them in parent/guardian contacts?”

The worksheet was reportedly assigned in a 10th grade English class at Citrus High School in Inverness, Florida, a parent confirmed to Libs of TikTok. The English teacher listed on the school’s Canva platform is not listed as an employee on either the district or the school’s website.
A spokeswoman for Citrus Schools told Libs of TikTok that there is “an open and active investigation” into the teacher and assignment. The school “can’t comment at this time.”
Asking students for their pronouns is absurd in itself, but giving children the option to hide pronouns, or anything, from their parents is groomer behavior. A student can essentially be living a double life in school at home— They can be trans or non-binary in school while parents are oblivious to their child’s new identity. So now a child and a teacher have this huge, life-altering secret that they are keeping from their parents. What could go wrong?
