It doesn’t matter what the student has done but teachers should not be addressing students in this violent manner and she should not physically engage with any students by all means. Please share she needs to be stopped. Wow I’m in awe.”

She always tries to bring herself down to the level of students I’m not condoning this but worse treatment goes down in this school”
Masego Brigitter Madiba: “She’s an amazing teacher! one of the best we’ve ever had at MGSS. She would never behave like this unless she’s really provoked.
