A pre-school in Texas dismissed one of its teachers pending an investigation after several social media posts surfaced of her writing about "killing Jews."
Nancy Salem, who was teaching at The Children's Courtyard school in South Arlington, tweeted a number of hateful messages about Jewish people, LawNewz reported Wednesday.
In one tweet, Salem wrote, "How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough." Her most recent tweet, directed at a friend, said, "Have a safe trip Lulu. I love you baby girl! See you in 3 weeks! Kiss the Palestine ground for me and kill some jews! <3 #IMissYouAlready."
The messages were discovered by the Canary Mission, a watchdog group that exposes anti-American and anti-Jewish comments on the internet. Salem was one of 24 people associated with the University of Texas, Arlington chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine who were found posting anti-Semitic language against Jewish individuals and Israel.
Salem's Twitter account has been disabled.
The school began investigating the tweets after parents complained, according to the Algemeiner, which first reported the story.
The Children's Courtyard school issued a statement on the investigation that was obtained by the Algemeiner.
Our senior management team is working to address this matter. This in no way reflects the views of The Children's Courtyard. We strive to provide an inclusive environment for all children, families, and staff members. We also expect our employees to uphold standards of personal and professional conduct.
The school originally suspended Salem but confirmed to LawNewz on Wednesday morning that she "is no longer with the company."
