Teacher accused of taping kids’ mouths shut in “quiet game”

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Reported by Liku Zelleke

When five young students at Winfield Scott Elementary School in Elizabeth, New Jersey, talked too much, their unidentified teacher punished them using a rather bizarre method: she taped their mouths shut.

The parents of the children are now asking that the teacher get fired. What is known so far is that she will not be allowed to fill in again at an elementary school.

According to parents and the school’s officials, the teacher, who is a substitute, allegedly took hot pink decorative tape and placed pieces of it on the children’s mouth and called it a “quiet game”. The width of the tape was similar to that of duct tape.

Angelique Correa Henderson was one of those five students. She said that she had felt pressure and was scared as the teacher taped her mouth because, she admitted, she and the other students “were jabbering too much.”

  1. Good. She cant hit or yell at them and they refuse to obey. Time out doesn't work. Their parents know they talk too much as well…

  2. I understand your point, however, it can be more complex than that. Tape contains adhesive, and some people have allergies to the chemicals used to make them. There have been cases where death has ensued because of an allergic reaction. As well, teacher are not supposed to put their hands on a child. If she was not able to control this behavior, she should have contacted the parents, and asked for a meeting to discuss the problem. She acted inappropriately. If she can not deal with children in a mature way, maybe she should rethink her profession.

  3. Leslie Settles: The teacher is not the child's parent for starters. Most importantly, children attend school to learn from their teachers not to be punished by them.

  4. Leslie Settles: The teacher is not the child's parent to chastise in such a way. These children attend school to learn from their teachers not to be punished by them.

  5. Allergies aside..taping their mouths is battery. I can agree there are some students who are challenging to say the least but I've worked with adults that are challenging and if an employer were to resort to "putting hands" on an employee to gain compliance..they would be sued for "workplace violence". Why is the standard different when it involves our younger citizens.

  6. CPS should check on any children in her care. She seems to be unstable and lacks proper judgment skills.

  7. I use to drive school bus and every morning this little Black girl would get on and start stuff you could report her and nothing would happen, I wish I could get her kicked off but I changed routes and immediately heard the new driver calling in a on Brat Lisa, one morning she told all the kids if we make up a lie on him, he'll get fired and have to go on welfare, she was in 3rd grade, this is how vicious the young brats are. One woman I knew older I knew here grown kids, She got cursed out everday by the brats when she'd complain too much they'd just change her route.

  8. She will not teach again however she will be paid from now until the end of time or until she retires. She can not be fired, thanks teachers union!

  9. Taping mouths shut was wrong, but it is also wrong for parents not to teach their children to follow school rules. Teach your children to behave at home and they will behave and follow instructions in public.

  10. leslie you are so right! What is a teacher to do when these bad ass children disrupts their class's everyday?

  11. This is why kids are running around unchecked these days. Somehow, over time, we went from teachers being able to discipline waywards to teachers NOT being able to touch a wayward. In my day, teachers used to
    WHIP OUR asses, tape our mouth shut and some more stuff. And it worked. Oh well, let us sit back watch as more and more kids become vicious disrepectful animals since no one cannot discipline them.
