TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
TPS board members voted 4-1 Tuesday to fire Assistant Principal Sandra Meeks-Speller, effective immediately.
Meeks-Speller has been on paid suspension since August. A 16-year-veteran with the district, she was accused of being insubordinate, and physically rough with students. Parents complained that Meeks-Speller hit, scratched, pinched and smacked their son.
The board also found she didn't treat students with respect, and improperly criticized staff at Spring Elementary for reporting a suspected case of child abuse to the Children's Services Board.
Meeks-Speller's attorney says a state-appointed referee recommended the district not terminate her contract, saying TPS failed to prove 95 percent of the allegations against her.
Meeks-Speller walked out of the meeting and refused to comment on her termination, but her brother did.
"She's a beautiful person," said Oswald Meeks. "She's educated. Prior students and students today love her, and what they just did in there is not Sandra and I don't appreciate it. "I don't think the other students out there appreciate it."
