A special needs teacher has been accused of betraying the trust of the students she taught and their parents by horrifically torturing one of her students for years.
Police say that Rosa Smith, 26, endured years of horrific treatment from her teacher at the High Point School in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Apparently, teacher Nesa Johnson, sent photo texts to Smith’s mother, in which Rosa Smith’s mouth is covered with tape. Johnson sent a text message reading, “Help. She won’t be quiet!!!!”
“Taping a special-needs student’s mouth shut is appalling in and of itself, but was especially torturous for Rosa, who is physically unable to remove the tape, has trouble breathing and clearing her throat, and breathes out of her mouth,” reads the lawsuit from the Smith family.
Should Johnson be fired? Should she be charged with a crime?
