Her excuse? Her mind “wasn’t right”.
ARLINGTON (CBS 11 NEWS) - Marquis Jay pulls out a pencil sharpener and shows the amount of shavings inside, “She poured the pencil shavings in my mouth.”
The 8th grader at Boles Jr. High School in Arlington says it was a teacher who poured the pencil shavings in his mouth in January.
“I was sitting in class with my head tilted back and opening my mouth,” says Jay. “Teacher came over and poured the pencil shavings in my mouth.”
The 13-year-old says he immediately spit it out and was taken to the nurse’s office where he washed out his mouth.
His mother Deidre Brown was called and she is still furious.
“I wanted to cry because it was like how could she do that,” says Brown. “What kind of message is it sending to the kids? She is supposed to be the teacher – the adult.”
