Children are annoying. Everyone knows it. It’s in their DNA. It’s part of their jobs. And even though that annoying behavior can cause you to want to pop them, you don’t do it. Unless you are Landis Elementary School teacher Lisa Allison.
The Houston-based teacher for the Alief Independent School District allegedly punched a second grade boy in the face after a classroom altercation escalated. Apparently the boy was being a little turd, so she sent him into the hallway. While there, he decided to start kicking lockers. When she left the classroom to address the behavior, she opted for the Machiavellian route.
A fight ensued in which the 48-year-old clearly won, but it was a short-lived victory. According to Complex, Allison slugged the boy on the right side of his face with a closed fist, wrestled him to the ground, and sat on his back. When school officials found the pair, she was still on him. They had her get up and brought both to the office. After observing the surveillance footage, the school district said, Allison was “immediately placed on leave when allegations were brought to the attention of campus and district administrators and will not return.”
Allison may be 1-0 when it comes to her MMA career in the second grade division, but she now faces charges of felony injury to a child and could get anywhere from 180 days to two years in jail as well as a fine of up to $10,000, which might as well be $1 million since she’s a, you know, teacher.
