Authorities Investigate Substitute Teacher For Slapping a Child

Tyler authorities are investigating a substitute teacher, who allegedly slapped a student. A 13-year old student at Moore Middle School made that claim Thursday afternoon. The student was treated for a cut to her eye at a local hospital. As of now, the substitute teacher has been removed from the TISD call list pending further investigation. The child's mother says while her daughter is not seriously injured, she hopes the teacher will be banned from substituting altogether.

Tyler Police are still investigating.
