ALLONS, Tenn.(KMOV) -- A teacher in Tennessee is in trouble for writing on a student’s forehead in permanent marker.

The student asked a question after a math lesson and the teacher reportedly responded by writing the word “stupid” on the child's forehead in front of classmates.

When confronted about the incident, the teacher said he was trying to joke with the student.

It is the teacher’s first year on the job and the district is deciding whether to fire him. The sheriff's office says it may be filing assault charges against the teacher.
