The incident, which was captured on video, reportedly happened on Friday inside 63-year-old Mary Hastings geometry class at Ozen High School.
In the video, Hastings can be seen repeatedly hitting a student in the head while yelling, “because you’re stopping them from graduating you idiot ass.”
“Why you did that,” the student asks Hastings, to which she responds by mocking the boy’s question – much to the delight of the other students in the classroom.
The boy she hit is smiling afterwards, but whether he deserved what he got really doesn’t matter in this situation. Teachers physically assaulting students can expect to lose their jobs, especially if it is caught on video. Just ask Barb Williams.
As expected, Hastings was removed from the classroom shortly after the video surfaced and placed on administrative leave. In a statement released to the press, Beaumont Independent School District said:
The Beaumont Independent School District can confirm that an Ozen High School teacher was arrested today for physically assaulting a student.…
DELTONA, FL – Three 12-year-old girls at Deltona Middle School were arrested for spiking a teacher’s drink with red pepper flakes.
The incident happened last week when 12-year-old Marjorie Garrido-Herrera decided to get revenge against 52-year-old Jayne Morgan because the teacher had sent her to the principal’s office for “dumping glue into another student’s backpack and for suspicion of stealing a laptop computer.”
The next day, Garrido-Herrera brought some red pepper flakes from home and enlisted the help of two other 12-year-old girls, Leisy Llanes-Pupo and Cristal Tejeda-Castro. While one of the girls distracted the teacher, the other poured the pepper into Morgan’s open can of soda.
When Morgan took a drink, she immediately began to choke and experience shortness of breath. She found the pepper after she poured the soda into a clear cup.
The three girls were arrested on Friday and taken to Volusia Regional Juvenile Detention Center. Garrido-Herrera and the girl who spiked the soda were both charged with poisoning food/water and tampering with consumer products. The girl who distracted the teacher is charged with tampering with consumer products and being a principal to poisoning food/water.…
THOMASTON, GA – Jennifer Robinson, a 47-year-old kindergarten teacher, has been arrested after admitting to having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old boy.
Robinson got busted after calling in sick from her job at Upson-Lee South Elementary School, where she has worked as a teacher for 17 years.
Nothing wrong with an impromptu sick day, but Robinson forgot to turn off her classroom computer. A teacher’s aid noticed notifications going off on Robinson’s Facebook page and went to disable them.
That’s when she noticed Robinson was receiving some very inappropriate content from a 14-year-old student of Upson-Lee Middle School. The instructor immediately notified the school principal, who then contacted police.
When police spoke to Robinson, she admitted to the relationship and said it had been going on between July 1 of last year and earlier this week.
The pair allegedly had sex in the teacher’s kindergarten classroom over summer break, in her car near the playground area of the school, at the teacher’s two homes as well as an industrial park.…
BRIDGEPORT, CT — Kyle Damato-Kushel has been charged after the 45-year-old teacher’s aide got caught by her husband having sex with a 15-year-old boy.
Damato-Kushel’s husband thought intruders were in his house the other night and called police. Turned out it wasn’t burglars, but rather his wife shagging a 15-year-old boy she once taught in pre-school.
Despite Damato-Kushel offering the boy $900 to keep his mouth shut, the teen spiiled the beans – telling police he had been having sex with Damato-Kushel since 2013, when he was in seventh-grade.
He said the first time they had sex was in her husband’s “man cave” and that by the end of their run, they’d had sex in other rooms of the house and at various places around Stratford. He said that during that time, Damato-Kushel was pregnant with his baby but had a miscarriage.
Damato-Kushel is going to have a hard time getting out of this one, especially since police say her DNA was found in the boy’s underwear. She’s been charged with second-degree sexual assault, impairing the morals of a child and tampering with a witness.…
According to reports, Wey was involved in a months long sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy she met at a student ministry program. During the months of August and September, Wey allegedly had sex with the teen at least 10 times.
These meetings reportedly happened in Wey’s home, car or at Commons Ford Park. Things may not have turned out as they have for Wey, had she not went for a hike with another teenage boy she befriended in September.
According to police, Wey invited him to an after-school walk at Commons Ford Park where she texted the boy that she knew of “some secluded hiking trails.” During the hike, the boy told police the two made out and he had put his hands on her crotch. When asked if he expected to have sex with Wey on that hike, the boy responded, yes, adding, “a teacher just doesn’t hang out with a student to hang out.”
What got police involved was the first boy finding out about Wey’s hike with the other boy.…
Sandra Ferguson was on her way to Sutter Elementary School Friday when she noticed one of her students in an unknown man’s vehicle. Ferguson sensed something wasn’t right and noticed that the girl looked scared.
Deciding to investigate, Ferguson pulled her car in front of the man’s vehicle and blocked him in. Ferguson asked the girl if the man was her dad, to which the girl answered no, that it was a friend.
“No, he’s not your friend,” Ferguson told the girl. “You get out of that truck right now.”
After the girl got out of the truck Ferguson called police, who arrested 51-year-old Santiago Salazar on suspicion of kidnapping. Police say Salazar “was not known to the victim” and followed the girl as she walked to school. They say he lured her to the passenger side of his vehicle and pulled her in by her wrist.…
HOLLIS, OK — Jennifer Caswell, the former teacher convicted of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student, was handed a 10 year prison sentence.
In April 2014, Caswell resigned from her position as an English teacher at Hollis Middle School amid allegations that she was having sexual relations with the 15-year-old student
At the time, no charges where filed because prosecutors didn’t have any real evidence anything illegal had taken place. Caswell, who was married and had a 6-year-old, wasn’t admitting to anything and the student said nothing was happening, that Caswell was just a nice teacher.
That all changed a couple months later when she got busted with the boy in a Best Western hotel room – in Mississippi. The boy was there to visit his mother, and Caswell had traveled 650 miles to meet him on the down-low.
That’s when the minor began singing and told investigators he’d had sexual contact with the teacher multiple times throughout April and May, including once in her classroom three days before she resigned.…
LAKELAND, FL – 45-year-old “school paraprofessional” Alecia Dotson was arrested Tuesday after a mother found some rather…upsetting…texts between Dotson and her 11-year-old son.
Eleven years old? HOLY SHADES OF MARY KAY LETOURNEAU, BATMAN! But wait. Do I remember this correctly? Ah, yes. Mary Kay was “only” 34 when she got busy with 12-year-old Vili.
Gary Gross, a sergeant with the Lakeland Police Department, indicated that the mother contacted police after discovering the texts between Dotson and her son. “There were approximately 100 text messages sent back and forth between the two,” Sgt. Gross said.
Did I mention that the officer’s last name is “Gross”? Were this a bit of fiction I was crafting, that would be called “foreshadowing.”
Once police began investigating, they had access to the boy’s phone, during which time Dotson sent texts saying “Love bug what are you doing” and “I’ll be sure to tell her we won’t have sex on the first visit…LOL.”
On Tuesday, she sent another text asking, “Are you awake love bug?” Unaware she was now communicating with law enforcement officers instead of a prepubescent boy, she arranged a meeting the boy at a local cinema for a bit of something that did not involve watching a movie.…
MARIETTA, GA — Mary Pursley, a special education teacher at Mount Bethel Elementary School, was arrested after police say she put an autistic student into a trash can and compared him to Oscar the Grouch.
The incident happened on Thursday during an after-school program when a second-grade student with autism began yelling and screaming in the classroom because he was “angry and upset about returning inside” and because another student was bothering him.
Pursley came into the classroom to talk to the boy and told him that if he continued with his trashy behavior, she would put him in a trash can. The boy did not stop, so Pursley made good on her word.
So, in front of other students with special needs and three adults in the classroom, Pursley picked the boy up and held him upside down by his legs inside a trash can. According to the arrest warrant, the student was crying, screaming and yelling for Pursley to stop.
Pursley was arrested on Monday and is now facing a first degree felony charge of cruelty to children for causing excessive physical or mental pain.…

The incident happened on Wednesday at Alverta B. Gray Schultz Middle School, when 34-year-old Annika McKenzie showed up to the school and waited outside of Catherine Engelhardt’s classroom.
When Engelhadt showed up, the two got into a conversation about an “incident earlier in the day.” According to McKenzie’s attorney, that incident involved the teacher putting her hands on McKenzie’s 12-year-old daughter.
Engelhardt reportedly refused to talk to McKenzie and instructed her to get a security pass. Police say what followed next was the teacher being shoved against the wall, placed in a headlock and thrown to the floor.

Jacobson was a popular photography instructor who had taught at the school for the last eight years. When some of her students tried to get inside her classroom they found the door was locked.
This was not normal for that time of day, so the students found another teacher who unlocked the door. That’s when they found Jacobson hanging from the ceiling. The teacher removed Jacobson and 911 was called.

Placentia police Lt. Eric Point said investigators have not located a suicide note. Several students said that Jacobson’s father had also committed suicide and that Jacobson had constantly advised her students against taking their own life.…
ELBA, NY – Police say a group of fourth-graders at Elba Elementary School planned on killing their teacher by exposing her to hand sanitizer.
Three students were involved with the alleged plot that was foiled in December before winter break. Their plan was to coat her personal belongings with anti-bacterial products because they knew she is highly allergic to them.
The plot was uncovered, as the usually are, because one or all of the kids involved talked too much. Word of their plans reached another student who also happens to have a parent on the school board. That parent contacted police.
Youth officers questioned the students the day before they were questioned by Elba School Superintendent Jerome Piwko, School Principal Scott Kapperman and a school counselor. During that meeting, with their parents present, one student stated that her teacher “yells at us and that the class has problems with her.” They also

Dinkel was a school counselor at Smoky Valley Middle School Counselor where the victim, a relative of a close family friend, was a student. He was later hired to do some work inside her home and this is where the sexual encounters between the two occurred.

They ended up finding her guilty of two counts of rape.…
FRESNO, CA – A lot of “debate” going regarding a story out of California where a mother has filed a legal claim against the former teacher of her developmentally disabled girl for putting the girl in an enclosure that the mother calls a cage.
Ledelldra Brooks says when she showed up unannounced to her 7-year-old daughter’s classroom at Viking Elementary School, she found her daughter wearing a dirty diaper inside a makeshift enclosure made from a toddler gate and a crib gate that were attached to bookshelves.
Not happy with the situation, Brooks immediately took her daughter out of the classroom, notified the school’s principal and called police. A teacher’s aide explained to the responding investigators that the girl was one of seven children in the classroom and that the enclosure, which had been there for three years, was not used for punishment.
The aide said students were put in the gated area when they were out of control or posed a risk to themselves and classmates. In the case of Brooks’ daughter, the girl had been disruptive in class and had scratched one of the aides.…
KENNER, LA – Police say two Destrehan High School English teachers decided to throw away their careers, relationships, reputations and possible freedom all so they could take turns sitting on some 16-year-old dick.
Kenner Police Chief Michael Glaser says the two teachers, 32-year-old Shelley Dufresne and 24-year-old Rachel Respess, met with the student after a football game on September 12th, then drove to Respess’ home where they participated in a threesome that lasted until the early morning hours.
Regular readers of DD know we’ve reported on a slew of women having sex with their students, to the point that I get sick of writing them up. The obvious difference with this particular story is that it involves two teachers at the same time.
You are probably wondering, like I was, how in the hell does a scenario like this happen? How do two teachers at the same school end up having sex with the same student at the same time? It’s simple, really; word of mouth combined with a severe lack of judgement.…
Two hours after classes ended on Friday, Nash approached his teacher and put his arm around her. When she rebuked his advances, Nash body-slammed her to the ground, choked her until she was unconscious, then raped her.
By the time the teacher regained consciousness and called police, Nash had already left the scene. He’d also put a used condom in her purse, threw her cell phone in the trash and took her car keys.
Police would locate him five hours later driving the teacher’s car. Once in custody, Nash admitted he sexually assaulted the teacher. Nash has been charged with attempted first degree murder, sexual battery, robbery and grand theft.
Nash’s father, Victor Marshall Nash Sr., said that he was ‘shocked’ to hear his son had been accused of raping his teacher, adding that he and his mother “tried to raise him as both loving parents.” Nash Sr.…
That’s bad enough. But the kicker is that the girl had been sent to the bathroom as bait in a sting orchestrated by a teacher trying to catch the boy in the act.
First, here’s a bit of background. Teachers at Sparkman Middle School were having a lot of problems dealing with a 16-year-old boy at the school. The kid wasn’t demonstrating your standard juvenile hijinks; he was violent and sexually aggressive towards female students.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the issues school administration has had with the teen, starting after a 2008 suspension for hitting a student:
Feb 2009 – Suspended for “sexual harassment.”
Apr 2009 – Received in-school suspension for disrespecting a teacher.
Sep 2009 – Suspended for trying to pay another student to beat up a girl
Oct 2009 – Banned from school bus for 10 days and given three days in-school suspension for telling off school bus driver.…
