SAN ANTONIO: A former teacher attempting to teach a 6-year old student a lesson on bullying found herself in the bully seat. When it came to her attention that one of her students was accused of being a bully, Cynthia Ambrose, 44, sprung into action and executed her own brand of discipline directing other students to line up and hit a 6-year-old boy so he knows “how it feels to be bullied.”
Barbara Ramirez, a teacher who observed the incident said: “It started out as a pat, then she told the class, `Come on, hit him harder.'”
Ambrose was convicted of official oppression and will be sentenced July 29th. She faces up to a year in jail. Her attorney will pursue probation claiming his client had already been “convicted” by the media.
