Teacher let student pierce her ear three times and pierce another student's navel in class.
April Beard, a high school teacher in Pennsylvania, allegedly allowed a student to pierce Beard's ear and then another student's stomach -- in class.
Beard, 34, was charged with endangering the welfare of children and corruption of minors, police said. Court records show she also was charged with body piercing of a minor.
According to Carroll Township Police, on April 16, Beard took a "handful" of students into a project room, and left the rest of the students in the classroom. Chief Sean Kapfhammer said a student with a piercing kit was then allowed to pierce Beard's left ear three times and then pierce another student's belly button.
Police said Beard paid the student $20 and gave her a homemade necklace as payment for the piercings. Beard then told the students, "What just happen(ed) here does not leave the room," according to charging documents.

She resigned her position. I can't believe she did this in the school. Her attorney says a lapse in judgment and she lost a career. That she did not know it was illegal for her to get pierced. Well she knew it was for the other kid.
