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.…
According to Lovell’s parents, their daughter pushed a dresser against her bedroom door and climbed out a window last Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.
Since she did not take the liver medication she has to take daily, it is assumed that Lovell believed she would be returning home before her family woke up.
Unfortunately, she never did and she never will.
On Saturday, her body was found 60 miles away in North Carolina. Before the day was over, police would arrest David Eisenhauer, an 18-year-old Virginia Tech student, and charged him with Lovell’s abduction and murder.
There hasn’t been a lot of details surrounding how investigators honed in on Eisenhauer, but police did say that Lovell and Eisenhauer “were acquainted” and that Eisenhauer “used this relationship to his to abduct the 13-year-old and then kill her.”
But Eisenhauer wasn’t the only Virginia Tech student police would arrest. They also apprehended Natalie Keepers, a 19-year-old freshman from Maryland.…
Police went to the home after a worried father called 911 to report his son had called and claimed to have killed his girlfriend and was going to kill himself.
Inside the home police would find the bodies of two SUNY students – Kelsey Annese, 21, a member of the women’s basketball team, and Matthew Hutchinson, 24, a player on the men’s hockey team – as wella s the body of a former student, 24-year-old Colin Kingston.
An official cause of death has not been revealed, but police say a firearm was not involved and that a knife was found at the scene. Geneseo Police Public Information Officer Jeffrey Szczesniak said it’s too early to rule the deaths as a murder-suicide but they “believe the perpetrator is one of the deceased.”
I am totally speculating here, but with the info that has been released through various news reports, you can kind of figure out what happened.…
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.…
TOULOUSE, FRANCE – Three French students have been accused of murdering a fellow student then, inspired by an episode of Breaking Bad, trying to dissolve her body in acid.
The three men, one 19 and the other two in their 20s, had recently began making their money by selling amphetamines to other students.
Last month, two of the three students went to the apartment of 23-year-old Eva Bourseau to collect approximately $6500 in drug money she owed them.
When they found out she did not have the money, they beat her to death with a crowbar and brass knuckles. In order to get rid of the body they decided to dissolve it in a plastic bin full of acid. One of the accused would later tell police they got the idea from watching Breaking Bad.
Figuring her body would dissolve in a few days, the geniuses bought a plastic bin, stuffed Bourseau’s body in it, then poured acid over her corpse. They would revisit the woman’s apartment over the next couple of days to check on the progress of their Soupe au Bourseau, steal some items, and replace air fresheners they were using to mask the smell of their work.…
PORT TOWNSEND, WA – A 13-year-old boy has been charged with three counts of first-degree rape after police say he sexually assaulted a 7-year-old girl on a school bus.
Jefferson County Under Sheriff Joe Nole said they began their investigation back in March after receiving a call from a doctor’s office regarding the possible rape of a 7-year-old.
The victim’s aunt, her legal guardian, had taken the girl to the doctor’s office after she came home from school bleeding, and finally told her aunt what the boy had been doing to her on the school bus. While exact dates of the assaults are not known, the resulting investigation determined the girl and the boy rode the bus together from Sept. 3, 2014 to Feb. 25, 2015.

The incident happened earlier this year at North Miami Senior High, but is just making the news now, as the four teens are about to go to trial.

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.

LAKE STEVENS, WA – Two third grade girls from Sunnycrest Elementary School have been suspended after they bypassed Internet filtering software on their school supplied laptops and shared explicit pornographic images with other students while in class.
The two girls were in class using the laptops at the time, says Lake Stevens school district spokeswoman Jamie Taylor. According to the district, the school system subscribes to a filtering software that blocks certain content like pornography, gambling, obscenities, etc.
The girls were able to view the porn due to a change in the search engine that had not been updated by the filtering software company. Regardless, the district says they are standing by their decision to suspend the two girls because instead of alerting their teacher, they shared the images with other students.
Austin Maxwell, the stepfather of one of the girls, isn’t happy with their decision. He says they have parental locks on their home computer that work, and that his daughter only saw the images after searching for words on the urging of another student.…
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.
