Opinion: Kenosha Teacher’s Union President Causes Uproar With #fakenews Social Media Post About “Parent With Gun”

Tanya Kitts-Lewinski (D) Kenosha Teacher’s Union President

Tanya Kitts-Lewinski (D), the Kenosha Teacher’s Union President and Indian Trail Teacher was very upset last night at the school board meeting. She was upset that students and teachers are no longer being forced to wear masks. She is a hyper-partisan liberal. You can’t scroll for long on her Facebook without seeing some type of social justice quote, rainbow flag, anti-gun talk, or something of the sort.

She posted on Facebook that KUSD has been driven by parents and administration on the far right. This couldn’t be much farther from the truth. Each and every member of the Kenosha School Board are democrats. Todd Battle might be the most moderate, but he is still a democrat. She is very upset she didn’t get her way.

She then posted a very puzzling Facebook post after the meeting:

Tanya is apparently upset that there was no security at the school board meeting. She then went on to say that she saw a man with “a gun in holster and a Sheriff’s badge.”

You read that correctly. In the same post she was upset that there was no security but then said she saw an off-duty police officer.

As she probably intended, her post went viral and was shared many many times in the Kenosha area. It upset so many people that Kenosha Unified responded:

Anybody that has attended a meeting of the KUSD school board knows that off-duty officers are present for security. She is at almost every meeting. She either knew he was there for security or should have known. She should apologize to the community for crying wolf.

She issued a corrected Facebook post and then deleted it entirely. Thank goodness for screenshots! The internet is forever.

Shame on you Tanya!

  1. Kitts-Lewinski appears to be a very hysterical and anxiety ridden person. Children have a tendency to pick up on this and hopefully her students are getting the nurturing environment they deserve. Most have been working every day since the pandemic started and are not falling to pieces like this. Lead by example!

  2. Tanya Lewinski is a perfect example of what’s wrong with educators that do not understand their responsibilities. Her comments and actions are that of a radical narcissist that’s unfit to teach Children. Her comment about doing better for Black and Brown families is a racist comment. She excludes white and Asian children or do they not count? Children don’t see color, racist like Tanya see color as a way to divide and instigate. It’s sad that an unstable, radical, police hating school teacher can be elected as President of anything other than a basket weaving club. The police officer had a his badge and gun, yet she says he didn’t identify himself. I hope the families in Kenosha stand up and have this bias/racist removed from her position as President and teacher. Kenosha can do better and should do better in their selection of teachers, politics have no place in education. Don’t allow this radical and unstable teacher damage your Children’s school experience/enjoyment and education.

    1. Well said. This person has no business teaching. How did fellow teachers from KUSD vote for her? The leadership of the KEA can now be put into question, as to if they are really there for the kids or to the indoctrination our children. I question about her ability of being an objective professional when a student has a differing view / opinion than her obvious bias toward socialism. This could have very damaging effects on any students future that she does not agree with. The idea of education is to open discussion for learning and to expand the ability to express their own views, NOT falling in step with the teacher just to get on the teachers good side. The best teachers will listen and in some cases learn from the students point of view also. If they don’t have a fair and just teacher then the process will fail that student, not the student failing because it doesn’t fit the teachers ideological beliefs. It sure would seem that any student with a differing view point than this individual will not have a fair chance for succeeding in her class. Her actions here are an example of a failing teacher within the system. Time for her to look for something else than teaching with her obvious bias and hatred toward parents questioning her and the school board. She works for the parents and the school board. The school board and the parents have the right to tell her how to do her job. It’s called being a PUBLIC employee.

      1. Very well said. Unfortunately, Kenosha’s far left partisan school board sees no issue with an employee like this. True, she is committing no crime and probably falls within the disciplinary confines of regulations, thus keeping her employed. Clearly, there is instability in her actions. I can’t imagine leaving my child alone in her custody. Begs the question..would she be able to provide unbiased care if one of her charges had parents that were in law enforcement?

  3. Is anyone really surprised? I mean KUSD and their employees have been crooked for years. Remember Martice fuller? Remember the teachers that went to his court hearings in support for him? Remember a teacher being part of jury tampering and on a no contact order? Remember a Indian trail teacher posting a pic with the murderer stating they loved him hours after he killed a young girl and almost her mom? KUSD is a joke and never once did any thing to them techaers. Maybe a KCE story on that? I mean these are supposed to teach our youth, now our youth see the support of a murderer

  4. It isn’t funny that you call her crazy. She clearly has identifiers of fetal alcohol syndrome. She’s mentally challenged.

    She doesn’t belong in the position she is in, but her mental illness is likely due to a physical condition. Is it possible her mother KNEW how rotten her kid would turn out and it lead her to drink? It is hard to know…
