Teacher Hurt In Class

(GLADE SPRING) — A disturbing story out of a Glade Spring classroom…Jim O’Reilly…

An 83-year-old substitute teacher is now in intensive care after being pushed by a student that was upset at Patrick Henry High School. Witnesses told officers the teen was already being difficult before the teacher handed out an assignment, causing the student to stand up and receive a warning to sit back down from the teacher. The juvenile then approaches the elderly teacher…and pushes him down. The teacher hits his head on a desk. The 17 year old faces charges. He was taken to the Highlands Detention Center.
