An investigation has begun into a Salem elementary school teacher. According to an anonymous source, multiple children were treated inappropriately by a teacher. Instances of this include the teacher using an angry voice with students, correcting students in front of peers, keeping children from going to recess, and even grabbing children.
Currently, the teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave. The principal reached out to parents on Friday, January 26th, to let them know of what had happened. Our source reveals that one specific incident occurred on Wednesday, January 24th, in which a student was grabbed by this teacher. It seems like this investigation is currently ongoing.
The district statement “While the District cannot share details due to student privacy laws, we can confirm that we are investigating an incident that occurred between a teacher and a student. The District takes student safety and well-being seriously, and we’ll be following all applicable law and District policy concerning investigation of this matter.”
These are all just allegations brought forth from a concerned parent in the community. Nothing has been proven at this moment regarding the teacher in question.
