(WNBC-TV) A substitute teacher in New Jersey won’t be allowed to fill in again at an elementary school after she allegedly taped shut the mouths of several students last week, officials say.

The teacher was working at the Winfield Scott Elementary School in Elizabeth and placed decorative tape over the mouths of five students during a “quiet game” after lunch, according to parents and officials.

One of the students, Angelique Correa Henderson, said she felt “pressured and scared” as the teacher taped her mouth “because we were jabbering too much.”
