School Principal Karen Zuniga wrote in a Facebook post: "This afternoon, we fired one of our guest teachers for hitting and fighting with a student. Under no circumstance is that behavior tolerated at Lehman High School or in Hays CISD."
"Additionally, the former employee was arrested by the Hays County Sheriff's Office and faces potential criminal charges. Her actions will also be reported to the Texas Education Agency."
"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.
