Flashing Lights on Police Car

Two Georgia area preschool teachers are facing criminal charges after parents witnessed them abusing children on a live video.
The incident was reported at the Parker-Chase Preschool of East Roswell on June 3rd.
According to the report, a parent logged onto a livestream video of their child’s classroom and noticed a teacher standing on the “outstretched hand of a child, before striking another child with her leg,” Roswell Police Department spokesperson Tim Lupo wrote in an email.
Another employee then gets “down on hands and knees and aggressively verbally scolds the child before placing a finger on the child’s forehead and pushing her backward.”
Once Endeavor Schools, the parent company of the preschool, was notified about the incident, they immediately fired the employees:
“The teachers in question were immediately removed from the classroom and have been dismissed,” the statement says. “We reported this matter to our licensing agency and Children’s Protective Services and are cooperating fully with the authorities, who have informed us that criminal charges are being pursued. While we are extremely grateful that the children are well, we take this matter seriously, and our investigation is ongoing.”
The teachers identified as 40-year-old Zeina Alostwani and 19-year-old Soriana Briceno, are also facing one count each of cruelty to children.
