Florida teacher charged with child abuse
Jacksonville, Florida. A teacher in Florida was accused of child abuse of a student just two days after he was named the school’s teacher of the year.
Caroline “Melani” Lee is facing child abuse charges following her arrest Friday. Lee was arrested after a female student was called into her class to speak in private and allegedly hit the student in the face.
Lee denied physically harming the student, and told a police officer that she only wanted to speak to the student. The confrontation was instigated by an Instagram post about Lee winning the Teacher of the Year award. Student comments questioned the win.
