Teacher Arrested for Allegedly Hitting Student

A Texas school district placed a teacher on administrative leave after a video surfaced appearing to show her hitting a student in class, resulting in her arrest.

“The Beaumont Independent School District can confirm that an Ozen High School teacher was arrested today for physically assaulting a student,” district officials said in a statement Friday. “The conduct was substantiated by video footage viewed by BISD police and administration.”

The allegation is against geometry teacher Mary A. Hastings, the special assistant to the district superintendent, Nakisha Burns, told News today.

The Beaumont Independent School District Police Department, which made the arrest, did not immediately respond to News' request for comment, but Hastings, 63, was, “immediately removed from the classroom and placed on administrative leave pending action on her contract,” according to the school district.

In the video recorded Friday, Hastings appears to hit the student repeatedly saying, “Because you’re stopping him from graduating, you idiot a--.”

The student responds, “Why’d you did that?” before Hastings appears to mimic him, while the rest of the class starts laughing and yelling. The student then goes back to looking at his cellphone.

Hastings was booked into the Jefferson County Jail Friday on an assault charge, and released on $2,500 bond the same day, a jail spokesman said today.

It’s unclear whether she has a lawyer or has entered a plea.

In Friday’s statement, Burns said that, “The District is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our students. BISD does not condone employees abusing any child and will not tolerate such conduct.”

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
