No one was ever in danger, the second-term representative told Fox 4 News. Samsel said, “Did we make it look like we were in anger or outregeous or hurting kids? Yeah, we made it look that way,”
In a Snapchat post shared with The Star, he reiterated his point that the incident was “all planned.”
He posted, “Every little bit of it. That’s right. The kids and I planned ALL this to SEND A MESSAGE about art, mental health, teenage suicide, how we treat our educators and one another. To who? Parents. And grandparents. And all of Wellsville,”
Samsel will no longer be permitted to substitute teach in the district, but he continues to work with students in other capacities, such as as a referee and with church groups.
