CBS News - BEAUMONT, Texas --A high school math teacher is facing an assault charge after video surfaced of her hitting a student at least five times in class.
CBS affiliate KFDM reported Mary A. Hastings, a 63-year-old geometry teacher at Ozen High School, was arrested and has been placed on paid leave.
The cellphone video, recorded by a classmate, shows Hastings swiping papers off the student's desk then slapping him five times.
Hastings, who appears exasperated, scolds the student for being a disruption. She hit the student while saying, "...because you're stopping him from graduating you idiot [expletive]."
The student who recorded the footage told KFDM the incident happened Friday morning. It was unclear exactly what provoked Hastings to strike the student.
"BISD does not condone employees abusing any child and will not tolerate such conduct," Beaumont Independent School District spokeswoman Nakisha Burns said in a statement. "The teacher was immediately removed from the classroom and placed on administrative leave pending action on her contract."
Hastings was booked into the Jefferson County jail on a misdemeanor count of assault. She posted $2,500 bond and was later released on a $2,500 bond.
I gotta be honest, I was expecting to see something like a few slaps, but that actually looked like it hurt. That bitch went into full rage mode, and you could clearly see it. I think the best part is she says something about the kid not graduating, and then afterwords when the kid gets mad she fucking mocks him. This woman clearly takes pride in her work. She cares so much about this kid graduating she thought she could beat the bad attitude right out of him. I respect this teacher, she must have a crazy graduation rate.
But seriously, this ugly beast of a teacher, 100% deserves to be fired. They should honestly take her pension away from her too if she even has one. I hate to say it, but of course this shit happens in the south. No way a teacher in New England would do this to a student. I'm sure school will be tough for this little student though. There's no way kids in his school are not giving him shit for his teacher kicking his ass. I mean obviously he can't fight back, but thats the rules of the game. You either hit a girl and go to jail, or get hit by girls and your the pussy. There's no winning, and for this student, he got emasculated by a woman on a viral video.
