Teacher accused of taping student to chair resigns
CREATED Aug. 29, 2013
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A Tucson elementary school teacher who a parent accused of taping her child to a chair is no longer on the job. The school district confirmed that teacher has resigned.
KGUN9 News first reported the incident in which second grader Mia Kramer said her Hollinger Elementary teacher used two strips of packing-like tape to keep her in her chair. Kramer told police she'd gotten up to sharpen her pencil too many times.
The Tucson Unified School District said it would investigate the incident.
"Obviously such behavior is not appropriate or acceptable and is not part of any district protocol," spokeswoman Cara Rene wrote in a statement to KGUN9 back then.
The southwest side elementary school sent parents a letter after the investigation began.
That investigation is now complete, Rene said.
District leadership declined to be part of an interview on this matter, stating it's a "personnel matter."
