Hickory Substitute Teacher Accused of Using a Jump Rope to Tie Up Misbehaving Students PDF Print

A substitute teacher at a Hickory elementary school has been relieved of duties in the Hickory Public Schools System after she allegedly tied up four students with a jump rope Friday for talking in class.


Our news partner, Foothills Radio Group, reports the teacher allegedly tied up the four students around their waists during recess.  One of the students who was tied up told the Hickory Daily Record the substitute teacher told the students, “This is what it’s going to be like when you’re in jail.”

The Record printed a letter from the school’s principal that was sent home with students at South West Elementary.

In the letter, Principal Sherry Willis said she obtained statements from students and teachers who witnessed the situation and reported the findings to Hickory Public Schools’ superintendent.  Willis said the students weren’t physically harmed, but the substitute teacher will no longer substitute in Hickory Public Schools.
