Teacher On Leave After Dressing Up As Devil

An Arizona high school teacher has been placed on leave after dressing up as a devil and telling students to “Hail Satan.”

The teacher claimed it was part of a Halloween spirit week and that they were participating in the theme of dynamic duos, with a neighboring teacher dressed as an angel.

“Participating in spirit weeks like this is a way for me to engage with my students and bring fun to my classroom,” the teacher argued. “It’s truly not any more complicated than that.”

One student, Nathaniel Hamlet, who is Christian, was uncomfortable with the costume and gesture and pushed the pitchfork away multiple times.

“I said, ‘Don’t do that to me’ and I pushed [the pitchfork] away, maybe three or four times, and he still said it and still did it,” said sophomore Nathaniel Hamlet.

Hamlet’s father reported the incident to the school administration, and the teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.

“I was livid because I am a Christian as well, obviously,” his father said. “What really tipped it over for me is, that he kept telling him no, and he and the teacher kept persisting.”
