[APPEALS] Patricia Terkosky vs. Indiana Department of Education 49A02-1212-PL-1000

Entry Description

Terkosky was employed by a Special Education Cooperative as a special needs teacher for twenty-three years, and most recently had been working at Worthington Elementary School as a special education teacher.  In March 2010, the Superintendent of Public Instruction initiated procedures to “revoke” Terkosky’s teaching license for “immorality” and “misconduct in office.”  The revocation procedures stemmed from four separate incidents involving Terkosky and various students, including: (1) having a student stand between an easel and the chalkboard, repeatedly striking the easel with a yardstick, and subsequently draping a plastic cover over the head and neck of the student; (2) slapping a child in the face and causing the child to cry; (3) grabbing a child’s arm possibly resulting in bruising and sitting her down roughly in a chair; and (4) “popping” a student in the mouth because the student called her a “meanie” and forcing that child to ride the second bus home from school that day.  An ALJ issued an order suspending Terkosky’s teaching license for two years which was affirmed by the trial court.

The Scheduled Panel Members are Judges Baker, Bradford, and, Brown.
