Teacher Facing Charges for Alleged Assault on Special Education Student

A Hubbell Elementary School teacher is on paid administrative leave following accusations she assaulted a special education student.

Anita Babe is a 5th grade teacher for the Des Moines Public School District.

She’s charged with two counts of assault causing bodily injury or mental illness. According to police reports, Babe assaulted the student while at school on two occasions — April 10th and April 15th.

The report also says Babe grabbed the student by the arms and pulled him, causing bruising to his arms.

Photos of the bruising were taken by the school nurse and police.

The Des Moines School District is conducting an internal investigation. A spokesperson says Babe was placed on leave immediately following the alleged assault.

Babe is scheduled to stand trial in August.

Her attorney declined to comment.
