Kindergarten Kids Found Naked in Bathroom

A kindergarten teacher in New Jersey is fighting for her job after reporting two of her students were allegedly having sex in a bathroom. 


According to the police report, teacher Kelly Mascio found the two five-year-old students naked in the in-class bathroom together. When she asked what was going on, the kids said they were having sex. Mascio reported the incident to her principal who in-turn called the authorities. Mascio was then immediately suspended. 


Mascio, a teacher for 15 years, could now lose her job. According to the Press of Atlantic City, the school superintendent is filing tenure charges against Mascio. The administration has selected a disciplinary route that has resulted in enormous emotional and professional turmoil, and has strained the confidence and trust of school staff, parents and community members. 


Police have not charged the teacher, but questions surrounding why the children were in the bathroom in the first-place have aided complaints against her. However, Mascio isn't being blamed by everyone for the fact the children were inside the bathroom. She has a large amount of support from those in the community who believe she should keep her job.
