District: Texas substitute put duct tape on 10 fifth-grade students' mouths”

A substitute teacher in Texas is accused of putting duct tape over the mouths of 10 elementary school students.

"The leadership of Maxdale Elementary School and the Killeen Independent School District are deeply saddened by this event", the school district's statement said.

The district is supporting any additional investigations as needed, Abbott said.

Hernandez said his table wasn't talking, so they didn't get their mouths duct taped. "It's a scary situation and it's scary to be put in that situation especially a child I couldn't imagine".

Officials say all 13 students are OK and that the teacher was immediately removed from the classroom "as a result of this outrageous and unconscionable behavior".

Maxdale Elementary's principal, Bobbie Evans, notified parents of the incident.

"She comes home from school every day and tells me what happens and she told me what happened in the classroom next to hers".

"I have not heard a thing from the police", Abbott said Friday afternoon.

A motive was not given for the substitute teacher's action.

"She had an idea where some kids would line up in a line and she would duct tape their mouths", Andy Hernandez, a 5th grader at Maxdale Elementary said.

Parents of students at the school were informed.

Students who had their mouths duct taped were treated by a school nurse. "There's not a word that I can say that I would of done".

At 10:57, Angel texted her mother that the teacher had been removed from the class.
