Substitute teacher arrested over brutal beating she gave to student at Texas high school, and there's video

A substitute teacher was fired and then arrested over a brutal beating she gave to a student after video of the incident was posted to social media.

32-year-old Tiffani Shadell Lankford can be seen wailing away at the student and then kicking her after she falls to the ground. The incident occurred during a foreign language class at Lehman High School in Kyle, Texas.

Video of the incident was circulated on social media.

Another video from a different angle shows that the student took a swing at the teacher before she brutalized the student, who was either 15 or 16 years old.
The student was released to a parent who took her to a hospital.
Lehman Principal Karen Zuniga released a statement decrying the behavior of their teacher.

"Under no circumstance is that behavior tolerated at Lehman High School or in Hays CISD," said Zuniga.

"We take the safety and security of our students seriously. We took swift action when this incident occurred and will do everything necessary to protect our students," she added.

Lankford had only worked as a substitute teacher for the district since August.
She was charged with aggravated assault, which is a second-degree felony.

Here's the shocking video from KXAN:


  1. Man, that chick can give Mike Tyson a run for his money. NOT cool.

  2. This woman is giving the class a lesson on how to NOT handle anger.

  3. How dare she; only the police are allowed to assault, beat, brutalize, and cage our students.

  4. That subhuman needs to do about 25 years in prison. A head stomp too.

  5. if it were my kid she'd be dead

  6. The kid shouldnt have swung on the teacher, and the teacher should not be fired.

  7. When God said that having sex with a beast was punishable by death, this is the beast to which he was referring. Read about it. The beasts had hands and feet and could speak. We are not supposed to mix. It is the unforgivable sin for which there is no redemption. You cannot un-combine genes once they are joined.

  8. Usually I will side with the teacher, but not here. Queen Kong needs to be sent to prison for this assault and battery.

  9. That buffarilla weighs three times what that kid weighs. And the head stomp? Typical thug behavior and not surprising at all.
