TX instructor arrested after video shows her hitting learner

A TX instructor was arrested after video surfaced appearing to indicate her hitting a learner multiple times during a Friday morning high school math class.

Mary Hastings was charged with misdemeanor assault after the incident at Ozen High School, FOX4Beaumont reported. She was initially taken to the Jefferson County Jail, but was released after posting a $2.500 bond.

Hastings, described as a veteran teacher, has only been with the Beaumont Independent School District for three years. BISD is investigating the incident.

One learner from Ozen High School, who asked to stay anonymous, told FOX4Beaumont that Hastings is typically a target of students who toss things and curse at the teacher.

“You know we only see twelve seconds of [the video],” the learner said. “That’s all it is. It’s not the whole thing.”

Hastings has been placed on administrative leave with pay until the investigation is complete.

BISD said in a statement it condemns Hastings’ actions.

“The District is committed to providing a secure and safe environment for our students,” the statement said. “BISD doesn't condone employees abusing any baby and won't tolerate such conduct.”
