Teacher Lynda May

Via The Mail

An art teacher accused of hurting a badly behaved pupil with a tube of glue began a £10,000-a-day trial today over the ‘relatively minor injury’.

Lynda May is accused of slamming a Pritt Stick on to the 12-year-old’s desk and catching his thumb after he lost his temper.

The 54-year-old retaliated after the special needs pupil struck the desk with his hand when glue was getting stuck to his fingers – hitting May’s wrist, the court heard.

May then allegedly used the tube to hit out at the boy during an art class in September last year, leaving his thumb bleeding.

The teacher, of Neath, South Wales, was arrested six weeks later and charged with assaulting the pupil, causing him actual bodily harm. Continue Reading….

It looks like a tube of Pritt Stick glue is about to end this woman’s career.

  1. Dunno, kids are more badass now & they know the teachers can’t do nothing. If the dude could walk from throwing a weight at a student. Then glue should be walk-thru.

  2. Special needs? Nowadays they seem to name kids with a bit of a bad temper with special needs :0(

  3. Special needs, people with learning difficulties, who easily get frustrated and need extra attention and seek it in any form. If u work with that group of clientele, its expected and teacher shd have known better. Having said that, people who work in this type of job are easily stressed and lack proper support 2 deal with the mental challenges they face.

  4. Who knew that Pritt Stick could be a deadly assault weapon…I got a whole draw of them at work…I can become a dealer on road

  5. if she works with special needs kids she should be more patient, working with children esp in this country can be very fustrating, not everyone can do it!!
