Ware Elementary teacher allegedly wrote on a student's arm with permanent marker
LONGVIEW - Juliandra Harris is a second grade teacher at Ware Elementary School, and was voted by her co-workers as campus teacher of the year in 2007 and 2008.
So, it shocked district officials to get reports that she wrote on one of her student's arms with permanent marker.
Longview ISD Spokesperson, Brian Bowman said, "It's reported that the teacher wrote in permanent marker on the students arm "stolen marshmallows" we don't know what that means, we don't know if he took marshmallows that day."
School officials say, they are still trying to clarify that is what the message said and if Mrs. Harris did in fact write it .
Bowman said, "We want all of our students at LISD regardless of age to be treated with dignity and respect and what we are hearing right now, that is not the case."
District officials are continuing their investigation with Mrs. Harris and the student, but until then she is suspended with pay.
