NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — A New Bedford teacher who had a chair thrown at her by a student now says her job is in jeopardy.
High school teacher Joanne Maura said she received a letter from administrators telling her she failed to preform her “responsibilities as a teacher at New Bedford High School” and could be terminated.
“I feel like I’ve been assaulted again,” she said.
The letter said she did not inform the administration of the nature, details and severity of the incident.
Marua told NewsCenter 5 that after the student threw the chair at her, other teachers ran to the room, along with an administrator and the school resource officer.
Another student in the classroom was recording the outburst and posted it on YouTube.
Maura said she took the student’s phone away during class and he began yelling at her to return it.
The video shows the student pick up the chair and hurl it toward the teacher.
It smashed against her desk.
The superintendent would not comment on the details of the investigation.
