Mom Is Furious After Teacher Rips Braids Off Her 11-Year-Old Daughter’s Head

It was all caught on tape.


A Wisconsin teacher who is being accused of assaulting an 11-year-old female student and pulling three braids off her head has been placed on administrative leave.

According to the girl’s mom, acting principal and behavior support coach Rob Mueller-Owens pushed and “punched” her daughter because he was upset with the amount of perfume that she and her friends had sprayed in their classroom at Whitehorse Middle School in Madison, Wisc.

“Just the whole experience is just traumatic and devastating and just confusing,” mom Mikiea Price told WISC-TV. “I’m just disgusted at this whole incident. You know I send my kid to school to learn, and that’s a place where mothers send their kids to be comfortable in. I just feel violated in so many ways that … this even happened to her.”

While the incident, which took place on February 13, was caught on a surveillance camera, the school is not yet releasing the footage.

And Price, who is a substitute teacher in the district, says that her daughter is still shaken up and that she’s disappointed in the actions of a fellow educator. “If he has all that training, why would you approach that and why, when a kid told you don’t touch me, why did you come and meet them with more force?” she said to Madison365. “It’s very frustrating, you know… Even as a mom, like I can’t protect her.”

In a statement to Yahoo Lifestyle, the Madison Metropolitan School District said, “The staff person was put on leave while the situation was investigated. Based on that investigation, the staff person will not return to Whitehorse Middle School, and we are determining next steps. In addition, our team is coming together to create a full support plan to ensure that students [are] safe and fully supported at school.”
