Indiana teacher’s aide resigns after apparently stapling note to student

PLYMOUTH, INDIANA (NBC) – A teacher’s aide in Indiana is in hot water and has resigned after trying to staple a note to a fourth grader’s forehead.

The principal at Jefferson Elementary in Plymouth says when the fourth grader refused to remove a post-it note from her forehead, the teacher’s aide attempted to staple it to her head. She was left with two holes in her head and received a tetanus shot as a precaution.

Neither the aide nor the student are being identified at this time. But a report was filed with local police.

School principal Bob Remenih says, “She had a Post-It not on her shirt and then she put it on her forehead. And she was asked to take it off. I’m not quite … and then when she didn’t, I think there was some sarcasm of ‘Do you want me to put it there permanently?'”

Thembi says: That’s what I call follow-through on a normally empty-threat! But if that were my child I would probably sue that teacher and then have her beaten.
