WHO IS TEACHING YOUR CHILD?:  Teacher locked Kindergartener in closet

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – A Memphis teacher locked a 5-year-old girl in a classroom closet and then left the school, police said Wednesday.

Shelby County Schools said Kristin Oshfeldt, a teacher at A.B. Hill Elementary, has been suspended without pay, CBS affiliate WREG reported.

Akeelah Joseph’s mother said the kindergartner was trapped in the dark closet for more than an hour Tuesday before a substitute teacher found her. Oshfeldt had apparently gone home sick in the meantime.

She should stay out, because she IS sick.
