Disagreements between parents and teachers can occur for a variety of reasons. Some common areas of disagreement include issues with a child’s academic performance, behavior in the classroom, and participation in school activities. It’s important for parents and teachers to communicate openly and honestly with each other and to work together to find solutions to any problems that may arise.
But this case is different as the mother did not even try to work with the teacher and find a peaceful solution but instead launched an attack.
The woman has been arrested after a brutal assault on her daughter’s elementary school teacher.
As per reports, the 29-year-old Dai’Shonta is charged with three counts of aggravated assault, terroristic threats, stalking, and reckless endangerment.
The teacher, 46-year-old Janice, was taken to the hospital with injuries to her face, including a missing tooth.
The trouble between the two women started when Janice confiscated a cell phone from Dai’Shonta’s daughter. The girl allegedly bit Janice, requiring the girl’s mother to come to the school.
While her mother and teacher were meeting, the girl claimed that Janice had choked her.
“She is going to get it later,” Dai’Shonta said of Janice, according to news outlets.
Later that day, Janice was stuck in traffic on her way home when a man and a woman got out of their car and approached her.
The woman, alleged to be Dai’Shota, threw a brick through Janice’s window, hitting her in the face.
The woman then dragged Janice out of her car and began punching and kicking her in the street before fleeing.
Janice identified the suspect as Dai’Shonta, shown above in her mug shot.
Janice’s husband didn’t want to be identified because he was concerned for his family’s safety.
“Sad and disappointed that people would go to such lengths against another human being over something so petty,” he said.
Janice’s husband also described her injuries, saying his wife is in a lot of pain but feels lucky to be alive.
“Her face was numb, she has lumps all along her forehead and all along the side of her face. It’s not disfiguring, but it shouldn’t be there. It was caused by somebody else doing something crazy,” he said.
When police found Dai’Shonta after the assault, she told them that after she left the school, she went to a police station with her boyfriend to file a complaint against Janice for allegedly choking her daughter.
Dai’Shonta then confessed to following Janice from the school and punching her in the street, but denied throwing a brick at her.
“I ain’t gonna lie, I did it,” she said, according to reports.
The president of the federation of teachers, Nina, released a statement condemning the assault and saying no teacher should ever have to face this situation.
“Words are not enough to express my horror about the brutal attack on one of our own yesterday,” she said in the statement. “Appalled, incensed, and enraged are a few of the emotions I am feeling right now.”
Dai’Shonta remains in jail on a $50,000 bond.
