El Paso teacher accused of obscene drawing on student's assignment

EL PASO, TX (KTRK) -- An El Paso ISD teacher is facing disciplinary action after she was accused of drawing an explicit image on a student's assignment.

School officials say Kim Juzdowski admitting to drawing a penis across the student's assignment.

"She admitted to embarrassing the children rather than punishing them," the boy's parent, Sandra Green, told ABC affiliate KVIA-TV.

Green now wants her son transferred to another school.

"If it was a man teacher doing it to a female student, they would have taken this totally serious," Green said. "But because it's the other way around. I think they're letting the light side go on it. And I just want him out of the environment."

The school district issued a statement saying "the teacher has acknowledged the inappropriate behavior in class. The incident is being dealt with administratively. We're working to accommodate the request of the parent and what's best for the student."

Juzdowski is still employed at the school. The district says Green's request could could take more than a month to approve.
