In a letter to the school board dated Dec. 19, TSC Superintendent Scott Hanback recommended ending Battle Ground Middle School teacher Pamela Dahnke's contract.

...
Dahnke, an 18-year TSC veteran and former TSC coach, taught eighth-grade health and nutrition.
Dahnke has been on paid leave since September, when a special needs student accused her of duct taping his mouth shut.
"On September 30, 2008, Ms. Dahnke placed duct tape over a student's mouth during class in an effort to correct his excess talking," the letter states. "Placing duct tape over a student's mouth for approximately half the class period (15-20 minutes) and allowing that student to leave the class with tape on his mouth demonstrates behavior which cannot be tolerated. It is good and just cause for contract termination."
When reached late Wednesday, Dahnke said she was unaware the board had made a decision and had no further comment.
The finding of facts and conclusions of law, which the board adopted Wednesday, indicated that when confronted about the incident, Dahnke "stated she was very sorry and that it was intended to prove a point."
According to those documents, Dahnke was notified in October that her contract was being considered for cancellation. Later that month, she requested an official hearing.
...
It also said Dahnke returned to the school after the principal, Bea Younker, directed her not to be there.
...
Dahnke previously sued the school district in 1997 after she was forced to resign as softball coach at Harrison High School.
