Teacher pulls knife on her students? WTF?

Joyce Tyree, a science teacher at Culpeper County High School, is being investigated on accusations of brandishing a knife during class last week.

Students in the class allegedly kept asking her questions and one asked if she wanted a hug. When some students left their seats to come forward, Tyree reportedly displayed the knife and told them to sit down.

The Department of Social Services “received a complaint from the school administration last week and the issue is under investigation,” DSS Director Lisa Peacock said. “We are working on it. It is a Virginia code-mandated requirement that in any situation with a caretaker of children that possibly involves harm or threats to those children, Child Protective Services must be called.” Full article here.
