Allen >Metroplex Gymnastics & Swim
Abusive Teacher. The owner's daughter Ms. Sharla was our son's GAP class instructor. When we arrived to pick him up, his face was red from crying. He said the teacher didn't like him and "threw him against the wall". Ms. Sharla said she didn't know what happened and had not touched him. After much investigation, Ms. Sharla said she had "assisted him to a time out, scraping his back(which left a 2 inch by 3 inch bruise) against some cabinets". She later changed her story to "he fell off a table". We should have been greeted by the teacher with an immediate explanation of any accident. This presented as a coverup with multiple story versions from Ms. Sharla. We were shocked to find out this teacher was related to the owner and the owner was only interested in keeping the class full--making money. We made a report to the Allen Police Department and to Child Protective Services. Nothing was done because it could not be proven that our son, who was 4 at the time, did not fall off a table, even though the bruising was consistent with his story and her second story but not her 3rd story of falling off the table.
