ABERDEEN, Wash. – A Second Grade Teacher at AJ West has been placed on leave while an investigation continues into allegations that she forcefully pushed a student’s head into a desk recently, Aberdeen School Superintendent Marty Kay tells us "It is paid administrative leave, until we draw some conclusions following our investigation."
Apparently the incident occurred late last month but Kay tells us the exact date is not yet known, "when the incident occurred is really part of the investigation, because we’re not exactly sure when the incident may have occurred."
The student mother tells KBKW that the teacher allegedly lost her temper with the child because he wouldn’t put his head down at a time when other classmates had their heads down.
Kay said the child was not injured and that they have returned to school. "the child has returned to school and seems to be doing just fine" The teacher remains on administrative leave until the investigation is completed.
