A Langley teacher was suspended for a week without pay after grabbing students and telling her first and second graders they were the worst class she ever had.
Chandra Leanne Carlson has been a teacher since 2009, and in the 2012-13 school year she was teaching in Belmont Elementary.
According to a resolution agreement released by the BC Commissioner for Teacher Regulation, the incidents took place on or around Feb. 6 of 2013.
On that day, Carlson hauled a disruptive student by his shirt to the front of a line of her students while leaving the school gym.
The same day she grabbed two students, identified as A and B, by their wrists and pulled them forcibly out of her classroom, again because they were being disruptive.
She on more than one occasion leaned in close to Student B and used a loud voice, which scared him, said the consent agreement.
She also once, while frustrated, told the class they were the worst she had ever had.
In March, the Langley school district ordered Carlson suspended without pay for a week.
She returned to teaching with a number of conditions, including that she work with her school principal on classroom management, refrain from physical contact, yelling, or making belittling comments to students, and work with a retired teacher to create a â€œplan of assistance.â€
Carlson has also been cited and has agreed to accept a reprimand for professional misconduct.
