An Ottawa-Glandorf teacher has been disciplined for threatening a student. The Lima News reports Lori Radcliff was placed on paid administrative leave on December 19. A parent accused Radcliff of telling a student, “If I could get my hands around your neck, you wouldn’t be here.”
On January 6 Radcliff admitted threatening the student, and was given a written reprimand. In a statement put in Radcliff’s teaching file, Superintendent Don Horstman said there was no evidence Radcliff intended to carry out the threat. However, he added the statement showed poor judgement and was unacceptable.
Radcliff has returned to the classroom, but has to be assessed by a counselor. She also has to take anger ma management training.
