Teacher reprimanded for spanking student on birthday


teacher was reprimanded after an incident that was caught on a student's cellphone in March during a class at a North Carolina high school.

Avery High School Superintendent David Burleson said the unidentified teacher was giving the student a birthday spanking and it was meant in fun. In the cellphone video, it shows the student lying across the teacher's lap at a desk with students laughing in the background.
 
Burleson said a student in the class showed the video to another teacher and that led to questions.

The superintendent said the long-time teacher was not suspended but was given a verbal and written reprimand, and told that it could not happen again.  
 
That was in line with the legal counsel given to school officials about how to properly handle the incident, Burleson said.
 
The teacher met with the principal and the superintendent.
 
Students at the school said they felt the incident was a joke and they didn't take it seriously.
 
School officials said the student who was lying across the teacher's lap was playing along, and was not offended or humiliated.
 
The teacher seen in that video spoke with Charlotte TV station WSOC Thursday but she did not want to comment.
