Middle School Art Teacher Fired, Charged With Felony in Bottle Throwing Incident

Crystal Lara Andrus, an art teacher at Morton Ranch Junior High School in Katy, TX was fired Wednesday after an incident in which she, enraged over students rowdiness,  allegedly threw a bottle of tea which struck a student, sending her to the  hospital for stitches. The student is fine, but Andrus faces felony charges of injury to a child, giving a new meaning to the phrase: “settle down, class!”

Andrus, reportedly a popular teacher, was the subject of a video last year when she spearheaded a mural project through ArtReach, a nonprofit bringing art education to under-served areas west of Houston.
