    Teacher fired and charged after biting middle schooler for not spitting out candy

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- School officials on Tuesday fired a middle school teacher charged with biting a student who would not spit out a piece of candy.
    Caroline Kolb has pleaded not guilty to an aggravated assault charge for allegedly biting 14-year-old Garrick Hudson on the back during a classroom scuffle Jan. 11.
    School officials conducted a probe and fired Kolb for insubordination and conduct unbecoming a teacher, The Courier-Journal reported, citing a copy of her termination letter.
    Administrators had previously warned Kolb to avoid being physically confrontational with students, according to the letter.
    A call Tuesday to Kolb's attorney was not immediately returned.
    The student's mother said Kolb told her son to stand in the hallway after he disobeyed her order to spit out the candy. When the boy tried to retrieve his books, they got into the scuffle.
    According to court records, the boy was treated for a bite wound.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    Damn, we had this one student teacher in behavioral science. She could have bitten me anytime.

    I'm betting there is more to this

    That'd have to be one hell of an explanation.

    Sounds like this was not the first time something like this had happened.

    That's how I viewed and why I said "good." Sounds like someone lost that particular edge they need when dealing with students who may tend to become unruly. It also is a financial risk to continue her employment.

    We had a weird teacher at my daughter's school. My daughter told me that he wasn't lookin' at them including her. He looked over their heads and yelled over and over. It freaked my daughter out. They later fired him on the spot. Something was in his system. Was it drug? War trauma that never heal? Or whatever. I'm glad that teacher in the news wasn't in my daughter's middle school. She's worse than my daughter's former teacher.
    I SEE NEKKED PEOPLE! AIN'T SKEERED!!!!!
