Cup of Wrath
Melissa Hussain, an eighth-grade science teacher at West Lake Middle School in Apex North Carolina is the month’s recipient of the “Cup of Wrath.”
Hussain attacked her students on her personal Facebook page accusing her 13 and 14 year old students of committing a “hate crime” when they anonymously left a Bible on her desk. Hussain also bragged on the social networking site that she “was able to shame” her students over the incident.
A student left the Bible on Hussain’s desk along with a note wishing the teacher “Merry Christmas” with “Christ” underlined. In response, Hussain wrote on her Facebook page “I can’t believe the cruelty and ignorance of people sometimes.”
Hussain also reportedly threw a religious postcard a student gave her in the trash, attacked students for reading the Bible during their free time and for wearing religious-themed clothing.
For attacking and ridiculing her students beliefs and making a mockery of the noble profession of teaching, Melissa Hussain deserves a full draught from the “Cup of Wrath.”
