Kindergarten teacher Barb Williams of Riverdale School in Hancock County, Ohio, is caught on the schools surviellance camera, AGGRESSIVELY lifting her 6 year old student, Ian Nelson, off of his feet and pushing him against the wall! She then proceeds to grab him by his face, right before she snatches him up by his shirt, flopping his head back and bringing his feet up off of the floor and then yanking him into the bathroom, where who knows what she did to him in there out of the cameras view! She only recieved 10 days suspended for what she did to this poor little boy!
The video makes me sick to my stomach! The thought of a teacher doing this to a child, deeply disturbs me! I'm a mother of 2 children, one of which is also 6 years old and in kindergarten, the other is only 2yrs old and not in school yet. When I send them to school, I expect to be able to trust that the teachers and staff will take good care of them! We should not have to worry about our children being BULLIED by their teachers!
There has been other complaints about this teacher in the past, and it was just brushed under the rug! Who knows how many other students she has done this to, where there wasn't a camera to catch her! She has no self control and can't be trusted around children! She shouldn't be a teacher! 10 days suspended is an early vacation for her since there are only 10 days left in the school year! She needs to lose her job permanently! We can't keep letting teachers get away with this type of behavior! We need to let them know that this is unacceptable and will not be tolerated!
