Chicago, IL — A Chicago Teachers Union leader is under fire for pushing for Chicago public schools to remain remote because of coronavirus risks while vacationing in the Caribbean, according to Fox News.

Chicago Teachers Union area vice president Sarah Chambers opposes requiring teachers to return to the classroom and posted a photo that appears to show her poolside in Puerto RicoWGN-TV reported. Chambers has since deleted her Instagram account, according to the station.

“Hearing of an educator revolution happening,” she wrote on Twitter on Thursday. “Tons of members are emailing their admin: I’ll be asserting my right to continue to work in a safe remote environment on January 4th, 2021. I have signed the pledge, along with over 8,000+ union educators to continue to work remotely[.]”

Chambers is a special-education teacher and a member of the executive board of the Chicago Teacher’ Union. Chambers address criticism over her travel on her Twitter account saying:

“I got 4 covid tests (2 rapid, 2 PCR) b4 coming here [and] wore 2 masks (N95),” Chambers wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

She continued saying, “Scientists said airplanes are safer than grocery stores [because] airplanes have ICU level filtration [and] everyone wears masks. My doc said it’s extremely unlikely for me to get Covid again since I had it so badly.”

Although it is uncertain when Chambers first contracted Covid, but she has shared her experience on her blog. She indicated she had to go to the emergency room three times starting in April after catching the virus.

CPS plans for students to return to the classroom on January 11 or later. However, the Chicago Teachers Union has raised the possibility of a strike, WGN-TV reported.

“It would be humane if, just once, the mayor and CPS acknowledged the fear and trepidation many educators and families have less than a week before their planned reopening, and offered some reassurance,” Chicago Teachers Union wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. “‘Follow the science’ means little when your entire household has COVID-19.”
