A Texan substitute elementary school teacher got booted from a classroom after she duct taped at least 10 students’ mouths, according to a Thursday statement.

The unnamed substitute teacher had taught at Maxdale Elementary School in Killeen, Texas, reported CBS News. The 10 students whose mouths she duct taped, as well as three other students who had reportedly duct taped their own mouths, received attention from the school nurse but were deemed uninjured.

“The leadership of Maxdale Elementary School and the Killeen Independent School District are deeply saddened by this event,” said Terry Abbott, spokesman for Killeen Independent School District, in a statement obtained by CBS News. “The principal has informed parents, and has reassured parents that the staff will continue to work hard to make sure every child at the campus is absolutely safe every day.”

Administrators notified Child Protective Services and will cooperate with any potential investigation by authorities, KWTX-TV reported.
