    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A teacher was escorted out of Whitewater Middle School Thursday accused of making a verbal threat against students. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools would not comment on the specific threat but the school district said it happened during class.

    CMS officials said they take all threats seriously and CMS police and the Human Resources Department are investigating the incident.

    The district would not say if the teacher will be suspended.

    "We send our children here to be taken care of when we're not around and to learn,” parent Bonnie Sessoms said. “And if that teacher cannot carry herself in that manner, she (doesn't) need to be at any school."

    Channel 9 asked the district for the teacher's name but didn't hear back.
