Waterloo Community Schools spokeswoman Tara Thomas said Friday that teacher Matt Baish resigned effective Thursday.
The resignation came after the conclusion on a school district investigation of a Facebook comment Baish made in response to a post about the 16-year-old Thunberg joining an Oct. 4 student-led climate strike in Iowa City. In his comment, Baish wrote, “Dont have my sniper rifle.”
Thomas wouldn’t say if Baish was asked to resign.
A phone listing for Baish, who was a teacher at Waterloo West High School, couldn’t be located.
