Local teacher puts "I'm gay" sticker on student's back as prank

An Aldergrove teacher has had his teaching certification temporarily suspended for a classroom prank he instigated last fall.

Daniel Ogloff, who taught a metal fabrication and machining class at Aldergrove Community Secondary School, put a piece of tape bearing the words “I’m gay” on a Grade 11 student’s back in September 2013, reports News1130.

That student wore the tape on his back out of the classroom, and had his photo taken by his classmates, who were laughing at the boy.

Ogloff admitted to his actions to the commissioner for the BC teacher regulation branch. He served a 10-week suspension without pay late last year, and currently has had his BC teaching certification suspended for two weeks. His name does not appear on the staff roster for Aldergrove Community Secondary School.

Previously, Ogloff was issued a verbal warning for making “inappropriate remarks” to Grade 7 students.

Ogloff is listed as a CTS teacher at the Bassano school in Alberta. Vancity Buzz reached out to the school principal Wednesday to confirm Ogloff’s employment, but did not receive a response.
