Glaring, threatening, yelling, scolding, browbeating, pressuring, etc. a few teachers’ tactics to handle a classroom using intimidation is only terrible. While to most of us schooltime is a memorable experience that we would want to cherish lifetime, certain unnecessary behaviours that many teachers follow ruins everything. At the recent, a California high school teacher was seen forcibly cutting a student’s hair while screaming the incorrect lyrics to the national anthem “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The teacher has lost her job and is facing multiple criminal charges after the video surfaced on the internet. Loyal Dog Madison Who Survived California Fire Found Guarding Owners’ Burnt Home for a Month. 

According to CNN, the former teacher was identified as Margaret Gieszinger who would teach Science at the University Preparatory High School in Visalia, Tulare County. Video posted online, showed Gieszinger telling a student to “take a seat” in a chair placed in front of the classroom. She was shouting wrong lyrics of the United States national anthem, while allegedly chopping off chunks of the student’s hair and tossing it behind her. The video was first posted on Reddit by one of the students and gradually surfaced in all the social media platforms. Turkish Airlines' Pilot Surprises His Teacher Who Was Flying With Him.

After the student got up from the seat, the 52-year-old can be heard shouting, “Next! I’m not done. Next! Next!” She went ahead to select students from the classroom to come up. She then grabbed a female student’s hair and pulled it up while exercising the scissors in the air. Thankfully, the student got away, while Gieszinger continues to walk singing the national anthem.

The former teacher faces six criminal misdemeanour charges; one count of false imprisonment, two counts of cruelty to a child, two counts of battery, and one count of assault, reported CNN. The Tulare County district attorney’s office further said that she could serve up to three and a half years in prison if she is convicted on all the charges. Meanwhile, Geiszinger was released from the jail after posting 100,000 dollars (over Rs. 71 lakhs) bail.

Geiszinger’s past teaching records have not been very high. According to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing, she was suspended for 14 days in both 2007 and 2016. The reasons for the suspension was not clear. One of the students told the Visalia Times-Delta that what the teacher did “is inexcusable”. She further said, “She is a loving and kind lady. She is usually all smiles and laughs. This is not the Miss G. we know and love.”
