LARGO, Fla. (WFLA) -- A Largo High School teacher was arrested after being accused of abusing four children in her classroom last week.

According to a Largo Police report, Christina Reszetar, 51, said four students refused to wear their masks properly. Reszetar then allegedly sprayed the children with aerosol disinfectant “into the path of their faces and bodies.”

On Wednesday, Jan. 6, Reszetar was escorted from school and booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Reszetar appeared before a judge Thursday, facing four counts of child abuse.

In the courtroom, Reszetar told the judge she teaches Learning Disabled Math at Largo High School and has been a teacher for 21 years, 18 of them at Largo High School.

According to police reports, the whole incident was caught on camera. Reszetar said in court that the video will show those allegations are not true. With no serious prior record, the judge released Reszetar from jail without bond.

A Pinellas County School District spokeswoman told WFLA as of Thursday morning Reszetar was still employed.
