A California high school teacher is being accused of belittling students who support President Donald Trump after it was revealed that she has posted a lot of anti-Trump rhetoric and even admitted to teaching her personal beliefs opposed to the facts and truth.
The accused teacher was identified on Twitter and since then, people had crawled her Twitter account to grab screenshots of everything she was saying that involved her talking poorly about Trump, her students, or admitting what she was doing.
This was revealed when Corey A. DeAngelis posted about it. He included the screenshot below and his own caption, saying “Government school teacher: “The Trump administration is a fascist regime. I stopped circling that issue with my students. Call a spade a spade.””
After that, he posted another message saying “I’m not a Republican And I have no problem with teachers voicing their opinions on social media But she admitted to teaching her students that the Trump administration a “fascist regime.” That’s political indoctrination in the classroom. Families should have school choice.”
I'm not a Republican
And I have no problem with teachers voicing their opinions on social media
But she admitted to teaching her students that the Trump administration a "fascist regime."
That's political indoctrination in the classroom.
Families should have school choice.

It was at this point that people began investigating who Lora is. It was revealed that her name, allegedly, is Lora Yorch and she teaches in California. It may be outdated, but this name is listed on a California high school webpage as well.
Since the time of Corey’s post, the account in question has turned on protection and privacy and no one, except her personal followers, can view the contents of her tweets any longer. That account is said to be listed here. The name has been changed to “Elle” and it’s now private.
It remains unclear if the person behind this Twitter account is in fact a teacher named Lora Yorch or is a person acting as her. It has not been officially confirmed as of yet. In the age of social media and the ability to create an account whenever one desires, anyone could make an account as anyone else.
However, here are screenshots compiled by Cassandra Fairbanks, and these could point towards the account being held by the teacher herself.
