Cross-dressing teacher fills in at Wy’east Middle School

Snickering students removed from class

The Columbian

Parents of some Vancouver sixth graders are worried about what to tell their kids after a male substitute teacher showed up at school this week in women’s clothing.

The substitute teacher filled in at Wy’East Middle School on Wednesday, covering a humanities class.

Students said it was obvious that their substitute teacher was a man dressed in women’s clothing and from what we understand, some of the kids had a hard time settling down because they were laughing and making jokes. Some were eventually pulled out of class.

The school and the Evergreen School District would not talk on camera but told us if the lesson plan is followed, they don’t take issue with cross dressing. The exception would be if the outfit violated the dress code by being too short, too tight or low cut.

The substitute teacher has worked in the school district 19 days this school year at 13 different schools. He was given the chance to talk with us but declined.
