TAMPA, Fla. - DUNEDIN, Fla. — School officials have punished a Tampa-area teacher accused of using a water hose to clean up a pre-kindergarten student who soiled himself at school.
The St. Petersburg Times reported that 52-year-old Stephanie Wilson was suspended for 10 days without pay after the Pinellas County School Board said she went around to the side of the school building, donned a pair of gloves and used a low-pressure hose to wash the student on Oct. 28. When she finished, she put the student's pants on and went to the classroom, where she put a clean diaper on.
According to district records, Wilson told the child's parent she hosed the child, apologized repeatedly and said she used poor judgment.
Wilson is a 30-year veteran teacher at Dunedin Elementary School, northwest of Tampa.
