Tennessee Teacher Accused of Stapling Students

(Carter County, Tennessee) A 43-year-old substitute teacher at Central Elementary School, Alisha Lynn Cook, has been accused of stapling students. The reason for the stapling is unclear.

Cook faces three counts of simple assault.
WJHL affiliate reporter Mike Lamia interviewed Brandy Gobble, the mother of a Central Elementary School student who said her child was one the students who had staples in their body. "The principal called to tell me that my daughter wasn't in trouble, but she had been stapled by a teacher," Gobble said.

The mother says she went to the school to file and affidavit, and she says Carter County Sheriff's deputies came to the school to take a statement.

She said a school nurse removed staples from the students' arms.
Cook was booked into custody at the Carter County Jail with bond set at $5,000.
