Carie Charlesworth, teacher firedSAN DIEGO – An El Cajon teacher, who was fired following a domestic violence incident involving her ex-husband, received a job offer over the weekend.

Carie Charlesworth told Fox5 a private school in Los Angeles learned of her firing from Holy Trinity School in El Cajon and offered her a job.

In January, Charlesworth’s ex-husband violated a restraining order by appearing on the school’s campus, putting the school to be locked-down.

“I left that afternoon, was told I was taking the week off and I haven’t been back since,” said Charlesworth.

Three months later, a letter from Holy Trinity to Charlesworth stated that her contract would not be renewed and she would not be allowed to teach at other Diocese of San Diego schools.

The letter said Charlesworth was not only a danger to herself and her kids, but also the students and staff at the school.  School administrators pointed out her ex-husband’s 20-year history of violence, abuse and harassment.

The ex-teacher’s four children were also turned away from attending the schools, Charlesworth said.

Charlesworth has yet to accept the L.A. school’s job offer.  Her decision will be based on what’s in the best interest of her children.  She expressed her gratitude for all the support she’s receiving from the community.
