FREEPORT, Maine (AP) — A Freeport Middle School teacher has been suspended after allegedly making an inappropriate threatening remark during a class earlier this month.
Superintendent Shannon Welsh says the seventh-grade teacher was suspended after she received several complaints from parents and students.
She did not disclose the teacher's name or the exact nature of the remarks.
The teacher has been barred from entering the school building until the investigation is complete.
The teacher's lawyer tells WMTW-TV that he is confident that the "exaggerations" will be put to rest. He says the 30-year teaching veteran with an exemplary record has received support from students and colleagues.
