I’ve received threats that I should kill myself, threats that that I will be hung through military tribunal, [I have] been told that they’re monitoring me on social media and things like that. And it ebbs and flows.

There’s been several stories written about me through various — I hesitate to even call them media outlets — across the country that one of those gets posted in a story rehashed, then I noticed a significant uptick in those kinds of hate filled messages that come into my inbox.

Educators all over are quitting because of the threats of physical harm by (mostly christian) conservatives.
