'This lil mother f***** is crying like a baby for mommy': Teacher caught out after sending horror texts about autistic 13-year-old to his mom by accident (3 Pics)

Tiffany Lynn Elfstrom, 35, didn't know what to think of a series of angry text messages she received Monday morning from her son's teacher at Levi Fry Intermediate School in Texas City Independent School District.
The teacher had texted Elfstrom, "This lil mother f****r is crying like a baby for mommy because he wants to go home. Omg I just want to omggggggg pull all my damn hair out."
Elfstrom received the messages while on the phone with another teacher from her son's school telling her that he wanted to come home. Elfstrom's son is 13 years old and autistic.
Elfstrom shared a screenshot of the text messages on Facebook a few hours later, where they were shared more than 370 times.
 Tiffany Lynn Elfstrom, 35 (pictured with her autistic, 13-year-old son Jayden) says his teacher sent her an insulting and curse laden text about her son on Monday 


"I was shocked, also felt disgusted that she would send something like that," Elfstrom told Chron.com Thursday morning over Facebook Messenger.
Elfstrom also spoke with the principal of Levy Fry who assured her the situation was being handled. By Wednesday, the school had fired the instructor.

 The text was sent early in the school day. The mother posted it to Facebook 

The teacher was fired by Wednesday, after the mother complained to the school's principal 


"The teacher admitted to sending the text but did not intend to send it to the parent,"  Texas City ISD spokeswoman Melissa Tortorici said in a statement. "No matter her intention, the text is highly inappropriate and does not represent the character of people we want teaching our students. She was immediately removed from the classroom. We investigated the incident and she no longer has a contract with our district."
This is the second time over the past few weeks that a Texas educator has been disciplined for behaving poorly.
Ponderosa Elementary School Principal Shanna Swearingen was overheard saying a disparaging comment about a special needs student who has a history of running from class. The comment was made on April 17 in front of three staff members.
"We won't chase him. We will call the police and tell them he has a gun so they can come faster," Swearingen said.
The comment found its way to a Spring neighborhood Facebook page. The principal ended up reporting her actions to the district and "taking full accountability for the inappropriateness of the comment," Spring ISD spokeswoman Karen Garrison said in a statement.
"We are aware of the situation regarding a thoughtless and insensitive comment made by the Ponderosa Elementary School principal to three staff members. As a diverse district committed to dignity and respect for all, we take this incident very seriously," Garrison added. "While the comment was made in jest, it was inappropriate and should never have been made."
