B.C. teacher reprimanded for ducking out of class early

April 01, 2020 - 6:30 PM

Teachers are no more able to duck out early than their students, a B.C. teacher has learned the hard way.

Joseph Thomas Masi is a teacher at an independent B.C. school and was reprimanded this week for leaving a bunch of teenagers on their own near the end of the school day.

“On Sept. 10, 2018 Masi left a class of Grade 8 students unattended and unsupervised for the last half hour of the school day so that he could pick up his own children from school,” reads a notice by the B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation.

“He did this without notice to anyone at the school.”

He got a letter of discipline Sept. 14, 2018 and then on Oct. 5, 2019 a consent resolution agreement was proposed.

The consent resolution agreement for professional misconduct was reached in Vancouver March 13.
