Pre-School Mom Reacts to Support After Arrest for Assaulting Child’s Teacher

Pre-school mother Kasey Brooks reacts to the widespread support for her following her arrest for battery on her child’s teacher on Wednesday, Sept. 1 at St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Church’s preschool program in Grovetown.

Hear the exclusive interview with Brooks as she “tries to get justice for my baby.”

Meanwhile, the teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending the investigation, according to Jill Parks, communications director for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Savannah.

Brooks said she was upset over how her child was handled and watched a surveillance video of the teacher abusing her son.

During a meeting with the teacher and a school director, she allegedly assaulted the 61-year-old teacher. A witness tried to stop Brooks’ assault but could not. The school worker yelled for help and a second witness came into the room and pulled Brooks off the victim.

“But then Kasey jumped back on her and again started hitting her with her fist as the victim was lying on the floor,” a sheriff’s report says. “Kasey also bit the victim’s left thumb/palm, leaving visible marks.”

The witnesses pulled the parent off the teacher, and the teacher retreated to a class bathroom and locked the door. Brooks left the building, saying she would “wait for her mugshot,” a report said.

As deputies arrived, the teacher’s face was swollen and she had teeth marks on the base of her thumb. She was taken by ambulance to Doctors Hospital for treatment.

Brooks was charged with battery and later released on bond. She contacted The Jail Report on Thursday in anticipation of the story making the news. She requested to tell her side of the story. See that story here.

  1. If the statements to date are anywhere near correct, the supervisor needs to be fired as well as the teacher. Had she done her job, this would probably not have escalated. The teacher needs to be arrested for criminal child abuse and then sued for every dime she has.

  2. Need to see the video the mother saw. It’s too easy for me to side with the mother just based on her account of this. We’ve learned that it’s always best to see proof on both sides. Fortunately, both sides have video proof.
    But, if true, that administrator will need to be fired also. After seeing what the mother alleges, she should’ve stopped the video and fired the teacher on the spot, after she called the police.
    Boy, this is some “Jerry Springer” stuff.
