The parents of an East Antioch Elementary student are pressing charges against a substitute teacher after hearing their 11 year old son’s story of how she assaulted him in class. Teachers are advocates for students and this type of behavior is uncalled for. There is no situation when it is okay for a teacher to man handle and leave marks on a child. I am outraged. The Shawnee Mission School District spokeswoman confirmed the teacher is being made unavailable district-wide at least until the investigation is complete. The Overland Park Police Department Spokesman Gary Mason says they have not spoken to the teacher yet, but are making an effort to contact her. If she is found at-fault, Mason says she’ll be charged with battery.
