A Florida woman is facing charges after police say she attacked her child’s teacher during a parent-teacher conference.
On February 14th, Palmetto Middle School principal Jesus Gonzalez invited parent Stephanie Armas to discuss issues her child was having with students at school.
Eighth grade social studies teacher Mayade Ersoff, the student’s teacher, and assistant principal Isamara Berrios were also asked to join.
What ensued, however, was an altercation between the parent and teacher that ended with Armas, 34, being arrested and charged with battery after she allegedly struck the teacher, spat on the principal’s desk and threw a picture frame as the teacher was leaving through a back door.
The next day, Feb. 15, Armas was arrested at her home and booked into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in West Miami-Dade. She posted a $1,500 bond and was released.
Armas’ has entered a plea of not guilty.
