JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Southside Estates Elementary may be proud to call one of its own "Teacher of the Year" but one of its other educators is getting slammed for her bad behavior.
"I think it's going to be a whole lot of 'hell-raising'," said parent Earnesta Carter.
The parents that Action News spoke with are furious that former Duval County teacher Donna James could get her job back.
According to documents that Action News obtained from the Duval County School Board, James was fired last school year for failing to supervise her students on at least four different occasions.
During one of those lapses, a student reportedly stabbed a classmate. James is also accused of failing to prevent elementary-age students from engaging in sexual acts.
"I think that's insane," said parent Valerie Brisbon.
We called James to get her side of the story but spoke with her husband instead. They had no comment for now, but we do know a local judge is recommending the school district drop the charges and allow James back in the classroom.
Parents we spoke to said if she's back in the class their little ones won't be.
"I'm sorry my child wouldn't be allowed back in that school," said Alice Bates.
Action News reached out to James' attorney, but he has not returned our calls.
