‘I’m tired’: Teacher gets a new job after failing to make it to deadline

CUNY, N.Y. — The first of two classes at a CUNy high school for gifted students ended abruptly Thursday when one teacher was rushed to the hospital after a fight over homework.

The fight was sparked by a classroom assignment and was not linked to any students being in trouble, officials said.CUNY police responded to a 911 call at about 2:30 p.m.

Thursday, about a foot away from the school’s campus.

When officers arrived, they found a teacher who had been hit by a car and was unconscious, officials at the school said.

The school released the following statement: “As soon as the first officer arrived, he was immediately taken to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The police department is aware of the incident and the incident is under investigation.

This is a very difficult time for all of us, so we will continue to support our teachers and staff as we continue to make our school and community safer.”

The two teachers involved in the fight are in stable condition at CUNys hospitals, officials with the district said.

In a statement, CUNym President Jonathan B. Greenfield called the teacher’s death “devastating.”

“I am devastated by the loss of one of our teachers,” Greenfield said.

“I offer my heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends of the teacher.

I want to express my heartfelt sympathy for the school and its students and staff, who were subjected to this tragic incident.”

Schools across the country are facing a new wave of teacher unrest as teachers strike and many teachers are calling for higher pay.

Cuny students who graduated last fall received an average of $25,000 more than their counterparts in previous years, according to the district.

That figure includes $14,500 more in tuition.

Students at a class at Cuny’s Newburgh Elementary School were upset that the teacher was getting paid more than students in the district’s other schools, including one at Woodland Hills Elementary.

“It’s a very big deal to me that I’m getting paid so much more than people in the other schools,” said freshman Maya Garcia.

Garcia said she hopes her teacher’s family can move to Cunys so that she can see the school for herself.

“I think it’s important to see this school, this community, because I feel like it’s a community that’s just really accepting,” she said.
