A young teacher was arrested and will be charged with assault after slapping her young students, Israel Police said.

The 19-year-old Be’er Sheva teacher was arrested after two toddlers suffered bruises.

According to the initial police investigation, the woman hit a 2-year-old girl on her ear until she bled and needed to be taken to a hospital for treatments. During questioning, the teacher denied the allegations.

However, eventually she admitted to beating the child.
The teacher told investigators that she beat the children because she was nervous.

She also told police that she wanted to teach the children a lesson. According to school officials, the teen has been suspended from school in the past after she was caught hitting a child.

The suspect will be brought before the Be’er Sheva Magistrate’s Court for a bail hearing, while charges are still pending.
