Teacher Facebooks she could ‘kill’ students who glued her shoes to the floor
(New York Daily Sun) - An Albuquerque high school teacher has been placed on leave after allegedly posting comments on her Facebook page that she wanted to "kill" her students.
But the district, which is reviewing the matter, said they do not think the teacher was making a real threat and the local police have so far said a criminal investigation is not necessary.
After some students caused problems in a classroom at Rio Grande High School the teacher - who is not being identified - wrote on her Facebook page Monday "I can just kill these kids," according to TV station KOB4 in Albuquerque.
The students glued the teacher's shoes to the floor, the station reported.
When a poster asked if she would reconsider her choice of words the teacher responded "yes, kill tomorrow," the station reported.
Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Aaron Williamson said they were alerted of the incident and conducted an initial investigation.
"So far we have found it does not need to rise to a criminal investigation," he said.
Currently the matter is being handled internally by the Albuquerque school district, he said.
APS spokesperson Monica Armenta said sheriff's officers interviewed the teacher Tuesday morning when she arrived and has not had any contact with the students since Monday. She has been placed on leave and will go before the district's disciplinary committee for violating the district's Social Networking Policy. Armenta said.
"She explained that she had no intention of ever harming anyone and did not intend to threaten any student," Armenta said.
