JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A kindergarten teacher at Biltmore Elementary School is under investigation for allegedly choking a five year-old student.
The student’s parents say when they questioned Biltmore about the teacher, they uncovered more allegations. They say the teacher takes the kids to the bathroom, wipes them, and tickles them.
The Department of Children and Families confirms to WOKV News that they’re investigating.
“We are taking these allegations very seriously,” says John Harrell with DCF.
Harrell says in these situations, they usually recommend to the school district that the teacher be removed from the classroom.
Duval Schools as well as JSO confirm they are investigating as well. The teacher was in the classroom at Biltmore on Monday.
