Kindergarten teacher in Florida is being investigated after allegedly making students play a video game for five hours in front of her while she was at work.
Kaitlyn Miller was charged with misdemeanor battery and was released on $1,000 bond.
A K-9 unit searched the house and found video game cartridges, Miller’s personal cell phone, a cellphone charger and her keys.
Miller’s attorney said that she was unaware that the school district would be using video games to teach.
“I’m not sure what they were thinking,” attorney Daniel H. Schaffer told The Miami Herald.
“They don’t even teach that kind of stuff in kindergarten.”
Miller was fired on Thursday after an investigation into the alleged incident.
“We’re really sad about this,” Miller’s father, Thomas Miller, told the Herald.
He said his family is “really shocked” by the allegations.
Miller has worked for the Montessori School in South Miami for 10 years.
