Rockland School Teacher Charged with Abusing Several Special Needs Students

A Rockland County special needs teacher was arrested last week after she was accused of abusing several special needs kids in her class. 43-year-old Yessenia Vasquez, a teacher at Stony Point Elementary School, is specifically being accused of locking one of her students in a closet as form of time-out punishment back in December. An investigation was triggered after the parents of that student called the hotline after the district transferred Vasquez to another school. Vasquez has been charged with four counts each of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person; she is now been placed on administrative leave.    (Source: ABC News)
