Student Claims Teacher Duct-Taped Him To Desk

‘A Brevard County teacher was placed on leave while Cocoa police investigate allegations she duct-taped a kindergarten student to a desk as punishment.

“My teacher duct-taped me to that table,” 5-year-old Dylan Negron said.

Dylan told his mother that his teacher, Mrs. Maki Monje, at Cambridge Elementary was punishing him because he wouldn’t put his head down on the desk on Friday. His mother, Donna Negron, said she immediately reported the incident to the school and police.

“I’m very hurt,” she said, “Thinking that I was sending him to school and he’d be safe at school and I didn’t expect nothing like that to happen.”‘
