Awful teacher in school again after making 3rd grade students give him foot massages
Well, this is just weird. Apparently, an elementary school teacher in Salt Lake City, Utah was allowed to return to his classroom…even after it was discovered that he allegedly made students rub his feet and used a hammer to scare them!
On Monday, 53-year-old Bryan Watts was back in his third-grade class after having undergone what school officials called "appropriate disciplinary action." The problem? They haven't revealed what exactly that entailed or why he's been allowed to return! Sketchy, right?
Police initially began investigating Watts after a parent complained that her daughter had told her the teacher asked students to rub his feet and back during "movie time" and had previously scared a student by hitting a hammer on a desk. Though no criminal acts were uncovered, officials did uncover strange behavior that they believed to be unprofessional and worthy of punishment.
Watts was placed on administrative leave and apparently given disciplinary action...but now, the district is refusing to elaborate on what that was, even though he's returned to school.

What a bizarre situation! I just don't get it. Why would they let a teacher who has obviously crossed the line more than once back into the classroom? And to top it off, they did so without even letting the parents--who I'm sure were none too happy about learning about this Watts' weird behavior--know what his disciplinary action was!
If I was in their position, I would be extremely uncomfortable letting my kids go back to the class without even knowing if this guy actually paid for his actions. For the sake of the students, I hope he did…but if it was me, I'd definitely be asking for more information to know for sure!
