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.

I had her as an art teacher at Keys Highschool my freshman year. She was terrible! I was born without my left hand and she would make me do completely different art projects then all the other students. Anybody who knows me, knows that I'm well and capable to do anything a person with two hands could do. She never made me feel like I was apart of her class, and she was rude to me when I would get upset because I didn't like for her to not allow me to be apart of the projects. She even one time pulled me in the hallway and yelled at me because I refused to do her assignment if it wasn't the assignment everybody else was doing. If I didn't have such good self control, I would have assaulted her too.

In today's technological society there is NO reason why each classroom isn't under video surveillance. If not then take it from a smart dumbass like me :•]] It needs to be that way to protect both students and educators from that bull crap game of he said she said.

Looks like all the American Africans are on the side of the thug who attacked the teacher. And they wonder why the "N word" still enjoys widespread use.

We did punish the young man for up and leaving the class," said Thompson wise words from a superintendent would like to really know what up and leaving means? as far as the child goes we are now living in a society were it is ok to tantalize a teach ok to hit and be rude to adults this, this is not anything new.

Honestly I'm sure this teacher is not the only teacher in wagoner school district that is being bullied by the students at wagoner high school... She's just the first one to make it known to the public. I graduated at wagoner high school in 2012 and when I was a senior some of the students in my class would be mean to some of our teachers or subs and when the principle would ask if the students were being mean and stuff too the teacher we would all say no so the student would not get in trouble... With that being said most if the time the student would get away with it!!! It's sad that students can get away with this kind if behavior!!!

I was there when this situation unfolded. He didn't try to punch her or flip over any desks, all he did was kick a chair and walk

I was in the class when this happened, and she is full of crap. He kicked a chair and that is it. Not to mention she had previously locked him in a closet. She is just full of it.
