Most students are glad when they arrive at their next class and see a substitute teacher at his or her desk. That usually means it’s a free period spent chatting with their classmates. But for two sixth grade students, that also meant time to have a knock down, drag out brawl.
The incident took place at Hephzibah Middle School in Richmond County, Georgia during math class. A student named Mikiline Lester – whose mother Janice Williams told WRDW News needs to see a neurologist for a breathing problem – was grabbed around the neck and choked by a fellow student. Lester then punched the other student to get him off and was subsequently reprimanded by school officials because he “punched another child and struck blood.”
When Williams asked her son where the teacher was doing the altercation, he informed her that she was asleep. A third student took a photo of the substitute teacher and posted it on social media.
According to WRDW, the teacher will not work at Hephzibah Middle School any further but will still be allowed to substitute within Richmond County Schools and that it takes three complaints by schools in a district for the teacher to not be allowed back.
