(iWIDK By Brittany Hahn) – You spit, you get hit.
An Indiana special needs teacher, Gail Marie Huff, slapped one of her students on the mouth for disrupting her classroom by continuously spitting.
Huff, who taught at Attica Elementary School before the incident, told the press that she tried to stop the spitting by communicating both verbally and physically by “putting her fingers to the student’s lips.”
According to WLFI.com, Huff said, ”I am innocent. Child Protective Services investigated, they found the case to be unsubstantiated. But, for some reason the school board has decided that they find me guilty, even though CPS is the one to investigate child abuse cases and they found me innocent.”
The school board voted unanimously to cancel her contract.
