"There's a time and a place for everything and anything."

Singyette Daily was shocked to hear a teacher at Valdosta Middle School was under investigation for allegedly threatening to slap a 13-year-old student.

"I feel like your job is your main priority and a child needs to come to school and feel safe," said Daily. "So being threatened by a teacher is not appropriate."

Valdosta City Schools decline to comment on whether Cody was suspended or why she is under investigation.

WCTV attempted to reach Cody at work.

The School Board's Attorney says the matter is being looked into.

"This investigation is continuing and it will be conducted in accordance with the Georgia Law," said Gary Moser, Valdosta City Schools Attorney. "Very specific and then ultimately the school board itself, the Valdosta board of education will make the ultimate what if anything will be done."

Back in September Cody said another VMS student 14-year-old Calaundre Gascot hit her as he was attempting to leave class.

He was sentenced to 12 months probation but his family is appealing that ruling.

The school's attorney says this is an employee and employer dispute and the school board does not speak on personnel matters.
