A Utah high school chemistry teacher is no longer an employee of the Alpine School District after she was recorded spouting off to her students about unvaccinated Americans, her views about politics, and her dislike for Donald Trump.
Utah Public Radio (UPR) reported Thursday the teacher, Leah Kinyon, had initially been placed on administrative leave following an investigation into a student’s recording of her comments, but is now no longer an employee of the school district. KSL News Radio 102.7 FM reported Wednesday the Alpine School District released a statement confirming the teacher’s comments in the classroom and indicating she had been placed on administration leave.
“We became aware late this afternoon of an incident that took place today in one of our high school classrooms. An immediate investigation ensued. The employee has been put on administrative leave pending a thorough investigation. This behavior is inappropriate, not reflective of the professional conduct and decorum we expect of our teachers, and will not be tolerated”
The district did not name the teacher nor make a reference to Lehi High School at the time. “Alpine School District has concluded our investigation of the incident that occurred (sic) on August 17, 2021 at Lehi High School. Although the details of a personnel investigation are confidential, the teacher involved is no longer an employee of Alpine School District,” the district said in a statement. It’s not known if Kinyon was fired or resigned her position.
