A female tenth-grade teacher at a Louisiana High School was sucker-punched in the face after trying to break up a brutal fight in her classroom between two boys.

A video circulating on social media shows the horrifying moment the teacher at Chalmette High School in Louisiana was punched so hard in the face her head snapped back and her eyeglasses flew off of her face. 

After the violent blow, the stunned teacher lets out a shriek and is seen covering her eyes with one of her hands as the two boys continued to throw jabs at each other. 

As some chairs and backpacks were being pushed around the room amid the chaos some of the students are heard screaming: ‘Stop it!’ ‘Stop!’ ‘Break it up!,  while others appeared amused watching from the sidelines.

It was not clear if the teacher fell to the floor after being hit or if she walked out of the classroom, but one female student is heard screaming, ‘Damn! You broke her nose.’

Later it was revealed that some of the students went to alert school officials to get help for the injured teacher. Once her class was secure and the boys were restrained, the teacher left the school campus to get medical treatment.

The school would not release the teacher’s names or the two students involved.

But, the school confirmed that the teacher, who sustained bruises and swelling to her face, did not suffer a broken nose, as some students had initially thought. 

According to the video, there were no school security officers on site at the time of the fight, which now raises question about school security and whether teachers should intervene.

The school confirmed that the two boys involved have been suspended and the school is demanding that a criminal investigation be done.

Doris Voitier, the longtime superintendent of Chalmette High School traumatized by what she saw in the video said she was absolutely ‘appalled.;

‘Our teacher shouldn’t be involved in an environment like that and our students should have ways to settle their differences.’  

In a statement to DailyMail.com, she said ‘while we do not ask or expect our teachers to put themselves in harm’s way, we fully support our teacher and applaud her efforts.’ 

Voitier said the two students have been removed from Chalmette High School and will be disciplined according to their Guide to Student Conduct. 

‘Charges have been pressed against these students for their deplorable actions,’ she said. ‘As we always do in such situations, we are working hand-in-hand with the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office with the mutual understanding that behavior like this will not be tolerated in our schools.’

Voitier also gave an update on the teacher’s condition. ‘She’s bruised. Her nose is not broken and I am very upset and we are fully supporting our teacher.’    

The melee broke out on Friday afternoon around 2 pm during fourth period at Chalmette High School in St. Bernard Parish in Louisiana. Both students whose names were not released are sophomores at the school

The fight was so harsh that the school’s longtime superintendent, Doris Voitier said she was appalled after viewing the video. 

‘Our teacher shouldn’t be involved in an environment like that and our students should have ways to settle their differences,’ Voitier said.

 On September 12, a former student was arrested after school hours for allegedly pulling a gun during a fight on campus.

On Monday, St. Bernard deputies went to the school’s campus to further investigate.

It is not clear what the charges are that have been filed. 

Many of the parents were outraged by what took place, however, the superintendent called it ‘an unfortunate situation and an alarming one. 

‘Please know that our number one priority remains the safety and well-being of our students and staff,’ she said.  

‘The facilities at Chalmette High School may be the finest in the state. We are fortunate to have two dedicated and full-time resource officers at Chalmette High School at all times.’

‘We have a direct line of communication to the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office. Our teachers have phones in their classrooms to contact help when needed. But even in the most secure environments, incidents like this sometimes happen.’

Friday’s fight was the second major incident at Chalmette High over the last few weeks.  On Sept. 12, a former student was arrested after school hours for allegedly pulling a gun during a fight on campus.

Chalmette High School is described as ‘a premier high school located in Chalmette, Louisiana. The school has approximately 2,200 students in grades 9 through 12 and a student ratio of 17 to 1, according to the school’s spokesperson.
