Teacher Accused Of Stapling Paper To Student's Head
A fourth-grade teacher's aide in Indiana has resigned after he was accused of trying to staple a piece of paper to a student's forehead.
The incident happened at Jefferson Elementary School in the Plymouth school district. Superintendent John Hill would not identify the aide or the class but confirmed the story and said: "We're just sorry that it happened. We don't expect our people to behave in that manner. That person is no longer employed by the school corporation."
But Natalie Wilson, the fourth-grader's mother, is furious and tels the South Bend Tribune that the principal called her shortly before her daughter got on the school bus Monday, more than three hours after the incident occurred.
"I should have been told immediately," Wilson said. The mother said her daughter told her she had picked up a Post-It note from the floor and stuck it to her forehead. The teacher told her to remove the paper from her forehead or he would staple it there permanently.
But when the student failed to remove the paper, he approached her with a stapler and pushed it against her forehead.
Wilson says: There were "two holes in her head. It actually punctured her skin. This was not an accident."
