A former Miss Montana who is now a special education teacher has come under fire for posting demeaning tweets about her students with autism.
Liberty Middle School officials in West Fargo were made aware of Sheridan Tihista’s disconcerting comments when a group of parents sent in a 20-page printout of her tweets, which included calling a student a “psychopath” and saying how teaching students with autism is easy because “we loooove routines!” Last week, she allegedly posted, “Writing a research paper about parenting struggles of kids with autism and instead of writing ‘mothers’ I wrote ‘monsters’ #samething.”
Tihista, who was crowned as Miss Montana in 2013 on a platform of inclusive education for students with disabilities, told local station WDAY in a text last week, “My tweets may have been distasteful but don’t illustrate what kind of educator I am.”
Before briefly making her Twitter private on Friday, then deleting it altogether, her bio stated, “just another teacher trying to hide from her students on social media. If you’re a student, go away,” according to the New York Daily News.
A school spokesperson said they are looking into the matter.
