Dunnville High School teacher Jennifer Elizabeth Green-Johnson is serving a one month suspension after allegedly verbally assaulting students.

An Ontario high school teacher is facing a discipline hearing for allegedly saying a variety of inappropriate things to her students.

According to a document from the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT), Jennifer Elizabeth Green-Johnson, an English teacher at Dunnville Secondary School, repeatedly made foul-mouthed comments to students, not only asking a teen to "lick me where I fart" but also calling one student a "bloody pedophile."

Green-Johnson was suspended without pay for one month while she awaits a disciplinary hearing slated for Sept. 23.

It's not the first time she has found herself the subject of a disciplinary hearing.

A different OCT document from January also outlined different accusations of verbal, physical or psychological abuse dating back to 2011 to which Green-Johnson pleaded no contest.

She admitted to calling students stupid, idiots and "a bitch." While seeing a male student being carried by another on his back, she told him: "So you like it from behind." She also made comments about to her class about the size of an actor's penis while they watched a film containing nudity.

The hearing for these separate incidents took place in January but was made public when it was published September in Professionally Speaking, the OCT's magazine.
