A Douglas County School District history teacher and union leader is on leave after an online uproar over social media posts attributed to her in the wake of the incident between Catholic schoolkids and a Native American activist in Washington, D.C.

Images of Twitter posts from a now-deleted account, attributed to Mountain Ridge Middle School teacher Michelle Grissom, incorrectly identify the student in the now-infamous standoff last Friday, and call that misidentified student a member of the ‘Hitler Youth.’

The actual Covington Catholic High School student involved in the faceoff, Nick Sandmann, has since been identified and granted an interview to NBC News.

The student identified in the posts attributed to Grissom was not in Washington at the time, according to his family.

DougCo Schools spokeswoman Paula Hans would not comment on the situation but released a statement provided to Mountain Ridge families. More

This so-called teacher, Michelle Grissom, has no business being in a classroom. Placed on leave for endangering the life and well being of a high school student? She should be fired for doxxing period.

Michelle Grissom also resigned from her role on the union board today. She should have been fired for cause and never allowed to teach anywhere again.
