(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – An Idaho Falls girl is making headlines after her parents went public about horrific abuse she suffered at the hands of a special education teacher. Fourteen-year-old Hannah McClellan is now an 8th grader at Eagle Rock Middle School. However, between 2006 and 2010 Hannah was the victim of abuse at an elementary school in Kings Mills, Ohio. The McClellans came forward in 2012 alleging that Hannah’s teacher forced her to abandon her walker and even locked her in closets, all of which was known to school officials. The McClellans have filed six lawsuits against the Ohio school, two of which are pending.
