The Daycare Worker Who Mocked Children

It's what everyone looks for in a caretaker: a passion for mocking children over their appearance and disabilities, along with a high level of social media engagement. A daycare worker at A Heavenly Haven Learning Center in Newport News, Virginia, made headlines for making fun of the children in their care on Instagram. One post paired a photo of a boy who looks sad with a caption reading, "I'm sick of this shit!!" A comment below this charming image says, "he really looks like that's exactly what's he is thinking cuz he sure can't talk. LMAO."
