Mrs. Roberts has a long career as a caring and dedicated teacher. It is so unfair for her name and reputation to be put on the line for this incident. We haven't even heard the whole story. This child needs to learn some respect and his father needs to learn how to parent his child. His first response to his child's story should have been why weren't you following the classroom expectations, and his second response should have been a punishment. His third response should have been an apology to the teacher!!

Glad this teacher doesn’t teach my child. There are so many capable young teachers out there who really WANT to teach and know how to CARE about kids and get through to them without being physical about it. And these old crank pot teachers hang on for money not because they care about the kids.-And who pays the price? Us because we get a bunch of scared or nasty kids that come out of being around this kind of example of how to be in the world. They get the idea if You don’t like what someone does go after them with a poker. Can you imagine if we all went after people with pokers if they didn’t talk to us nicely-try doing that the next time a cashier at Walmarts isn’t nice to you and see if you get to just walk away.This lady obviously just wants to to get some extra money and a pension. She should be removed and fined. Who knows what she will do the next time- miss where she is aiming with her poker and hit some poor kids eye because they raised their hand at an inappropriate time? What she did with one kid was bad enough but now there are two more kids who came forward saying she has come at them with Pokers. Glad they arrested her.

Naomi ROberts is married to James J. Roberts. They were both previously married to other people. Both had their kids taken away at one point before they knew each other. James is currently being charged with stealing intellectual property in the federal courts. In the school records Naomi Roberts assaulted before and drew blood.- read the other boards. This is the third publicly known incident (there may be more) where she has gone after children physically. James Roberts is well known as a scammer and knows how to manipulate the system and make things look as if they are truth when they are not. I can't help but wonder who is behind a lot of the posts that claim Naomi Roberts innocense and say extremely negative things about a 10 year old boy whose voice was loud! I don't think I have to look too hard though... James J. Roberts latest escapade in the court system is to sue someone first that he stold intellectual property from so he can attempt to look innocent. He is well known as a scammer. This is Naomi Roberts third offense she had her own kids taken away at one point - but we should waste tax payers money allowing her to teach take paid leave and give her a pension. I don't think so.
