Today In Terrible Teachers: Esther Irene Stokes Denies Molesting A Student On The Grounds That She’s Racist

Houston teacher Esther Irene Stokes has been charged with molesting a first grade girl, but denies the charges claiming that she would never touch a black child.

“The victim said that she was in the classroom alone with the teacher and that the teacher touched her on the outside of her clothes, on what she called her ‘private part,’ her vaginal area,” reported police. Allegedly, the student asked Stokes to stop and the 61-year-old teacher banished the girl from her classroom, forcing her to stand outside in the hallway. According to reports, the girl was not allowed to eat lunch. The victim’s mother corroborated that her daughter didn’t eat lunch that day.

Stokes denied all allegations claiming she “doesn’t like to even touch the black children on their hand, she shies away when they try to hug her.” She admitted to being racist and told police that she “doesn’t like the student and has little to no interaction with her.”

This woman is a disgrace to the teaching profession on so many levels, I don’t even know what to say. I can only hope that Stokes will get her comeuppance when she appears in court in May. [KVUE]
