Teacher Pronounces Education Secretary DeVos ‘Completely Under-Qualified’

In a video posted to YouTube in February 2017, Hannah Siboyeh provided “a list of reasons why I believe that Betsy DeVos is completely under-qualified to be” U.S. Secretary of Education. Siboyeh at that time was 23, a college student who was also working as a substitute teacher at Labay Middle School in Houston, Texas. Flash forward to September 2018, and Ms. Siboyeh made headlines:

A former Cypress-Fairbanks [Independent School District] employee appeared in court [Sept. 10] after she admitted to losing her virginity to a 15-year-old boy who previously attended a middle school in the district, court records show.
Hannah Parisa Siboyeh, 24, was identified at the time of her arrest as a paraprofessional at Labay Middle School, where the boy previously attended. She was booked into Harris County Jail last week on a charge of an improper relationship with a student and posted her $10,000 bond.
Her hearing Monday determined the conditions of her bond, which includes staying away from the boy or his family. She is required to stay more than 200 feet away of any child care facility, school or home where the boy resides, documents show.
During the investigation, Siboyeh reportedly told investigators that her relationship with the boy was “one mistake after another.” She said she lost her virginity to the boy in the summer of 2017, adding that they had sex at the boy’s house, a local park and a Palace Inn at 8920 West Road in Houston.
“She admitted that she loved [the boy] with all of her heart,” the charging document states.
In a prepared statement, Cy-Fair ISD said Siboyeh worked as a substitute teacher in the district in January 2014 and later as a paraprofessional.
She has since been removed from her position, the district said. . . .
Police initially received information about the relationship from an assistant principal in the district in April 2018. The principal said an anonymous tipster told her about the sexual relationship involving the employee and the boy.
The tipster later told police that they had been visiting boy’s house when they saw the boy and Siboyeh lying in bed together, adding that “weird noises would be coming from the room,” the charging document states. The tipster also noticed them sharing photos with eac hother on Snapchat.
Police spoke to more witnesses, who confirmed the employee and student were in a “boyfriend and girlfriend” type of relationship, documents show.

On her Facebook page, Ms. Siboyeh indicated she and the boy were “soulmates always.” Well, isn’t that sweet? But I suppose she won’t be commenting further of Secretary DeVos’s qualifications.
