Who is Zoey Lohrs ?

A teacher in Texas was fired after ‘torturing’ her students by playing a video of a high-pitched dog whistle for 40 minutes to punish them.

The unidentified woman played the YouTube clip at Leland Edge Middle School for an entire period on March 2, leaving students clutching their ears in agony and accusing them of torture.

It is unclear what the class had done to deserve to be punished.

Investigation

The teacher has since been fired, and the police also investigated the incident, as a girl who was in the classroom condemned the teacher’s behavior.

Zoey Lohrs told NBC DFW: “She put on the ringing sound that everyone covered their ears.” One of them left the classroom, another shouted that it was torture and the other tried to disconnect the computer.’

The TV station also played a noise similar to the one broadcast to the class: a constant, high-pitched, shrill whistle, so unpleasant they had to warn viewers during a broadcast that lasted only a few seconds.

Police are investigating a Leland Edge High School teacher who decided to discipline her students by playing a 40-minute “dog whistle” YouTube video.

Mother

Her mother, Janice, said the teacher’s actions are even more unacceptable because she knew her daughter has a high sensitivity to high-pitched noises that trigger migraines.

‘I would understand if the teacher used it for a fraction of a second to get the attention of the class, but not for in excess of 40 minutes. Not when the kids are begging you to stop,” Zoey’s mom said.

In a statement to NBC DFW, the school district confirmed the teacher was fired, saying “the health and safety of students remains the highest priority for the district.”

Police have opened an investigation into a former teacher, the Community Independent School District said.
School officials are currently questioning students and staff about the incident as police continue their investigation.

‘The District will cooperate fully with local law enforcement agencies and due process. While CISD wants to be as open and honest as possible, we are unable to comment further on this matter until the ongoing investigation has concluded,” the district said.

But Janice Lohrs says she expects the teacher to face repercussions for her actions.

‘I would really like her to be held accountable for her actions, this is not right. You have my son eight hours a day. It’s supposed to be a safe place,” she said.

Videos

YouTube has multiple whistle-type videos, claiming that some of the sounds are so loud that only a child can hear, and that some have a different pitch that is only audible to an adult.
