WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – By the time school administrators in Florida moved last year to fire Susan Oyer, the Boca Raton Middle School teacher had spent nearly a decade drawing harassment complaints from children and parents.

There were accusations she quarreled with students. That she mocked their grades and intelligence. That she used their race or nationality to demean them. That she threatened to sue them. That she revealed confidential information about them to their classmates.

Students reported she pushed a girl from behind. That she prohibited students from using the bathroom. That she belittled a girl for not being an American citizen and threatened to report her to immigration authorities.

From 2012 to 2018, the social studies teacher was cited at least 10 times for her behavior in the classroom. She was the subject of three personnel investigations, each one upholding the allegations against her. She was fined by the state’s teacher licensing board.
