Out Miami Catholic School Teacher Fired After Posting Wedding Pics on Social Media

| February 12, 2018

GayStarNews reports that an openly gay first grade teacher at Miami’s Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School was fired after posting pictures of her wedding to social media.
What happened? Jocelyn Morffi, who worked at the school for seven years, was abruptly fired on Thursday, 8 February by principal Dr. Carlota E. Morales.

On Friday, dozens of parents came out to protest the school’s decision. ‘I’m upset,’ said Christina Lopez, whose son was in Morffi’s class. ‘The way they handled this was just unbelievable.’

The protesting parents praised Morffi as a great teacher and said they didn’t care about her sexual orientation. ‘What she does at home—that’s none of our concern,” Ricardo Oviedo, whose daughter was in Morffi’s class, told ABC News. ‘The fact is, she maintained a high moral standard at school and was inscribing in our kids a sense of community and love.’

Mary Ross Agosta, a spokesperson for the Archdiocese of Miami said Morffi was fired because ‘she broke the contract she signed when she began teaching at a Catholic school.’
