A teacher said she has been attacked and bullied by her students. Wagoner schools denies the claims, but now police are involved.
Kelie Myers, an art teacher, said her students went too far.
She snapped a picture of her right cheek bruised, she said, at the hands of an unruly high school student.
"That was from a broken protractor that came flying at my face," said Myers.
Myers said that happened just minutes before she met with Principal LarryMilligan to talk about another student who she says attacked her.
"He started throwing chairs and kicking chairs and coming at me with fists. I mean I was terrified," said Myers.
Myers said she'd asked the student to switch desks, because he was being disruptive.
"He just snapped," said Myers.
She said Milligan didn't back her claims.
"It is not factual," said Wagoner Schools Superintendent Monte Thompson.
"We did punish the young man for up and leaving the class," said Thompson.
Thompson said an investigation proved the attack never happened.
"I definitely feel bullied by the administration," said Myers.
"That's a common word in today's education," said Thompson.
Myers filed a complaint with Wagoner police about the student who she says threw chairs.
Now she says she's without a job, unless she's willing to return as a substitute.
Myers said either way, her last day is Dec. 20. The principal said police didn't take the teacher's claims seriously.
