A Greenville High School Special Needs has been fired after a video surfaced showing her dragging a special needs student across the gymnasium floor by her hair.
After the video started showing up on the Internet, The Greenville Public School District’s Board of Trustees voted to fire Ms. Winters-Johnson 11 days later.
A state Office of Educator Misconduct investigator has accused Winters-Johnson of “grabbing, hitting in the head and dragging of a special-needs student during P.E. class at Greenville High School” around Sept. 21. The commission on Nov. 4 will decide whether to suspend or revoke her special education teaching license.
