Florida Teacher Loses Three Days of Salary over Transphobic Facebook Posts
Administrative Law Judge Lowers Suspension by Two Days
In 2019, Florida math teacher Thomas Caggiano received an email from a student asking that he use her preferred name and pronouns, which were different from what was listed in the class roster. Caggiano refused, saying that “pronouns are not a negotiable thing for me.”
The school’s principal, Saryn Hatcher, spoke to Caggiano and told him that his position was in violation of school policy. Hatcher also set up an “All-In” inclusivity training for all of the teachers in the school, including Caggiano.
