WATCH! Public School Teacher Charged With Felony After Violent Assault On Student During Class

Remember when you were still a kid in school and your teacher would be absent for a day or maybe even go on vacation for a week and you’d get a substitute teacher? Well, depending on who it was, you were either going to have a great day or a terrible one.

Some teachers would be very lenient on what they would allow to occur in class on their watch, and some were at the opposite end of the spectrum and you wouldn’t even be able to cough without them getting onto you.

Perhaps we’ve uncovered one of the worst substitute teachers ever.

Tiffani Shadell Lankford who is 32 years old was caught on video violently beating a female student who was only half her age. In the video, Lankford can be seen punching the girl, grabbing her, throwing her to the ground, and even stomping her head.

Lankford was fired on the spot.

Following the assault, Principal Karen Zuniga of Lehman High School released the following statement:

“As a family, we share both the good news and bad news together. Today, I have to tell you about an incident that is disconcerting.

“This afternoon, we fired one of our guest teachers for hitting and fighting with a student. Under no circumstance is that behavior tolerated at Lehman High School or in Hays CISD. Additionally, the former employee was arrested by the Hays County Sheriff’s Office and faces potential criminal charges. Her actions will also be reported to the Texas Education Agency.

“We take the safety and security of our students seriously. We took swift action when this incident occurred and will do everything necessary to protect our students.”

In a second statement on Friday night, the district said that during the incident, classmates of the girl alerted other adults on campus and the substitute was immediately removed from the classroom and questioned by school resource officer law enforcement agents.

“Under no circumstance is that behavior tolerated at Lehman High School or in Hays CISD,” said Lehman Principal Karen Zuniga. “We take the safety and security of our students seriously. We took swift action when this incident occurred and will do everything necessary to protect our students.” In addition to firing the substitute teacher, the district will also report the incident to the Texas Education Agency and cooperate with law enforcement investigators.
