A Duval Schools English teacher who was just named Teacher of the Year at Darnell-Cookman Middle/High has been charged with a count of child abuse against a student at the school.
On Wednesday, the Duval County Public Schools Instagram account posted a photo of Lee, congratulating her for being named the school's Teacher of the Year.

Lee told police, according to the report, that she left her door open when the student was in her classroom.
The student reported hearing the teacher raise her voice as he was standing in the hallway.
Lee was arrested that morning after the officer spoke with the student victim, Lee and four witnesses — though no one else was inside the classroom with Lee and the student.
Lee has been removed from the classroom and will not return, pending judicial and internal procedures, the principal said. »
