Baltimore teacher brags about indoctrinating students, mocks concerned taxpayers

A Baltimore-area middle school teacher has taken to TikTok to openly celebrate “indoctrinating” children while taunting the taxpayers who pay her salary.

Alexa Sciuto, a Spanish teacher at Pine Grove Middle School in the Baltimore County School District, initially received heavy criticism for a previous TikTok video that included her lip-syncing to a song called “Oops!!!” featuring lyrics such as “Oops! Baby, F*** up on your b**** like oopsie daisy,” as she embellished her classroom with pride material.

When commenters expressed their disdain for Sciuto’s approach, the teacher pushed back with a comment on the video about “white supremacy.”

“Professionalism is a patriarchal and White supremacist myth,” Sciuto said.

“None of this is what education is supposed to be about,” one commenter replied. “Reading. Writing. Arithmetic. Why are you so (expletive) hellbent on indoctrinating our children?”

That comment became the centerpiece of Sciuto’s next video, featuring a sarcastically sad Sciuto and a caption saying, “I got fired for indoctrinating the kids,” followed by sad and angry emojis.

The video continues with a caption saying “sike,” meaning she was just kidding about the firing, over Sciuto wearing sunglasses. The finale of the video shows the middle school teacher cheerfully dancing beneath a caption that reads “still employed.”

In the same frame, Sciuto added an LGBT-themed heart with the caption “Y’all will never take me alive.” Beneath the heart is what appears to be a “pronoun wheel” with He, She, and “They” pronouns. 

Included in the final clip is an arrow pointing to a gif of a man holding a bag of money with the caption “your taxes.” Sciuto also added another caption under the pronoun wheel jeeringly directing concerned parents to just “put the taxes in the bag.” 

Fox News Digital reached out to the district about Sciuto’s videos but has yet to receive a response. While Sciuto’s videos have vanished from TikTok, a report from The Post Millennial says her page was “filled with videos of her making light of gender identity indoctrination in school.” 

Sciuto’s Facebook profile now features “As seen on Fox Newsin the intro section, along with a photo of her in what appears to be a classroom filled with pride, transgender and Black Lives Matter flags. Sciuto also criticized Carroll County Public Schools, Baltimore County’s neighbor to the west, for banning pride flags from being flown in its buildings back in June. 

Sciuto’s post said: 

“In an assault on the first amendment, Carroll County Public Schools has banned pride flags from being flown on their buildings. While I’d be a fool to say BCPS doesn’t have its own problems, I am grateful to work in a district that cares about its lgbtq+ students and staff. My classroom will always be a place of acceptance and safety for all students. Carroll County BOE, your decision is disgraceful.” 

Sciuto’s in-your-face videos are part of a growing trend nationwide of teachers bragging about, or making light of, indoctrinating students in the classroom. Texas middle school teacher Kelsey McCracken bragged on TikTok about “indoctrinating the youth,” claiming kids were “lining up at the door.” 

McCracken had recently switched from “Ms.” To “Mx.” and came out to her students as non-binary, neither male nor female. The teacher also spent a day interviewing her students from each class, asking whether a non-binary identity made them uncomfortable.  

When a TikTok commenter said McCracken should keep her own “gender confusion” out of the classroom, McCracken responded with a video of her putting her fingers in the shape of a gun to her head in front of a classroom whiteboard. The video included a soundbite saying, “I cannot stand this sh*t. Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang — click, click — reload, can’t stand it.”  

As teachers continue to brag about indoctrination and mock concerned parents, political figures such as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott have vowed to fight back.  

“Our schools are for education, not indoctrination,” Abbott tweeted in response to the story about McCracken. “We will put a stop to this nonsense in the upcoming legislative session. Schools must get back to fundamentals & stop pushing woke agendas. We will pass laws to get it done.”
