Parent leaves New York teacher UNCONSCIOUS after beating her in school hallway

This is just out of control. A New York teacher, Catherine Engelhardt, was left laying in the hallway of her school after a parent strangled and beat her unconscious. The parent claims Engelhardt “put her hands” on her daughter. According to the report, the teen daughter of this parent and several other students joined in kicking the teacher:

Authorities say the teacher was shoved against the wall, placed in a headlock and thrown to the floor, where she was kicked and punched by several students, including McKenzie’s 14-year-old niece. The teen was arrested, and both suspects are being charged with second-degree assault. McKenzie also faces a charge of strangulation.


Via the Daily Mail, Engelhardt is out of the hospital and recovering at home, telling Eyewitness News that she knew something was going to happen:

“It’s not like I thought a parent would do something, but I knew something violent was going to happen,” she said. “I’ve warned them time and again that the children have no respect for adults. Yes, I fear for my safety. They can’t control the kids.”
