She was often slut-shamed and abused by strangers, and even told that she was supposed to commit suicide.”I definitely considered suicide at least a couple of occasions,” Fitchner told The Canadian Press. “I simply wanted to to be free of all the things happening.”I believe that people believed”Oh, she’ll take off and continue and find another job.’ This isn’t the case. I’ve have everything. I really, truly did.”

She taught in a variety of Winnipeg schools for seven years, with the final two years at Churchill High School, which is the town’s Churchill High School, where she taught health and physical education and played volleyball for the girls.


In the rally in February the two were paired up with teacher Adeil Ahmed who had just joined at the institution on a brief-term contract. The two, who were dressed in football uniforms were scheduled to compete against other dressed teachers in a dance competition in the gym of the school.

They didn’t have a plan for their routine, according to Fitchner she was anxious about performing in front of students and staff. It she was Ahmed who suggested that she take a seat in a chair as dancing around her.

The next thing that happened was a catastrophe. Ahmed stood on his feet and was crushed against Fitchner Then, he simulated performing oral sexual relations on her. Students applauded and laughed. Fitchner admitted that she got lost in the moment and began to play the role of a character, dancing to the music from the chair and cheering Ahmed by using her hands.


After the show was over, Fitchner raised her head and then sank into a corner.

“It’s at that moment that I realized that this wasn’t going to be a good thing. I was embarrassment. My colleague then stood upand raised his hands up in the air, as if it was the greatest occasion to take pride in.”Parents were furious as well as the general public. Two teachers were suspended. Fitchner claims that she was forced to quit. Ahmed’s contract wasn’t renewed.


She was the recipient of most of the media attention. Her name was featured in the media and her picture was everywhere.

Vancouver Olympics.Ahmed’s name was later in the news, but Fitchner believes that the criticisms and bullying was directed at her.”The manner in which I was treated as a woman in this … There was a lot of discrimination and shame,” she said. “I thought I’d performed a solo dance or as a pole dance and so on.”


The Canadian Press was unable to find Ahmed. Fitchner claims she saw him teaching within Ontario However, she’s never talked with Ahmed since their last day in Churchill school.Despite the criticism Fitchner says that she also received support from students and teachers who believed the punishment she received was too harsh. Their words helped her as she battled through the months and years of anxiety and depression.


It was a while before she got some teacher jobs as a substitute in tiny communities in the outskirts of Winnipeg however, she was told that she couldn’t be a full-time teacher for the rest of her life. She claims she was unable to find a full-time job in any field in Manitoba: “That incident blackballed me.”Family has brought her joy, Fitchner says, but she’s left out a professional aspect in her daily life. Still, she is angry and resentment. This she hopes will be changed someday.
