A Florida teacher has reportedly been suspended for taping a student’s hands together and trying to tape her mouth shut.

The report, from Orlando-area TV station WKMG, also notes Greg Sims, a teacher at Lake Brantley High School in Altamonte Springs, was suspended for five days without pay.

The information comes in a letter addressed October 8th from the district’s superintendent Walt Griffin.

According to the letter, Sims “taped a student’s hands together, attempted to tape her mouth closed as a means of addressing her disturbing class and taped her book bag to a pole in the classroom.”

“I have determined that your conduct in this situation does not conform to the Seminole County Public Schools Student Conduct and Discipline Code,” Griffin wrote, as reported by WKMG.  “This is unacceptable conduct on the part of a professional educator and represents misconduct in office.”
