A Farmington High School teacher has filed a lawsuit against the Board of Education, claiming that administrators violated her right to free speech while harassing and “gaslighting” her for speaking up in support of special education kids, according to court filings.
A 12th-grade English teacher named Heather Maynard claims in a lawsuit filed in the state Superior Court in Hartford that after school leadership changed in 2015, the favorable reviews she had been receiving for years soured, and she was “made the target of retaliation and subject to a hostile work environment.”
The lawsuit alleges that the harassment is particularly apparent due to an “educator improvement plan” that made Maynard work countless additional hours under threat of termination.
