Klaus Hardy Breslauer acted inappropriately at least 2 dozen times while teaching in Vancouver.
A high school teacher in B.C. has been suspended for less than a week after making a number of sexually explicit, rude and inappropriate comments toward students over the course of a single school year.
Klaus Hardy Breslauer cannot teach from Wednesday until Friday of this week for negative and aggressive behaviour toward students, according to the B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation, including one instance in which he told exchange students “they should go back to working on rice farms.”
Breslauer admitted to a catalog of poor behaviour over the 2017/18 school year in a consent resolution agreement posted Tuesday.
Breslauer was teaching Science 9, Science 10 and Physics 11 at the time.
Breslauer also had more than 700 racist, homophobic, sexist and transphobic memes on his work computer, some of which he created himself and shared with students.
Students also saw a photograph of Beslauer and his wife, apparently nude behind a newspaper, after the teacher posted the picture on his public Facebook page.
Breslauer resigned from the Vancouver School District in November 2018.
The branch suspended his teacher certificate for three days. His teaching licence is invalid on May 27, 28 and 29 — a time at which most in-class instruction across B.C. is still suspended due to the pandemic.
