A Texas City teacher is being investigated after a mom says her 4-year-old was put in a dark closet as a punishment.
Little Leiondra Thomas has learned a lot since joining the Head Start program at the Mall of the Mainland. But Wednesday, something traumatic happened.
The little girl said her teacher put her in a closet as punishment.
"She didn't give me no chair, she just let me stand in there," said Leiondra.
"After I got off work, she told me the teacher locked her in the closet because she was crying," said Leiondra's mother, Ashley Davis.
The little girl's mother complained to the agency running the Galveston County Head Start program.
