A teacher who works at Bourne End Academy in Bucks, has been accused of abusing students
Helen Rosenberg, 59, was struck off after watchdogs have ruled her rough handling of pupils "amounted to an abuse of trust".
She was accused of pushing a pupil, pulling a girl's hair while telling her to sit down, and deliberately stomping on a teenagers toes.

Miss Rosenberg sneered at some absent students in class, saying: "All they would do is sit there scratching their balls".
The hearing was told she referred to students as "fat" and "ugly", and complained a pupil was "dirty with nits".
The teacher came to England after 20 years of work in Australia and found employment at Bourne End Academy, Buckinghamshire, teaching Maths between September and December 2015.
The shocking classroom cruelty came to light in November 2015 when parents made a complaint to the school.

Jayne Millions, for the Education Secretary, banned Rosenberg from teaching for a period of three years.
Miss Millions said: "Despite the considerable support that the School had provided or offered to Miss Rossenberg, there had been a rapid escalation in the seriousness of the incidents that pupils were exposed to by Ms Rossenberg's behaviour, both oral and physical.
"Public confidence in the profession could be seriously weakened if conduct such as that found against Miss Rossenberg were not treated with the utmost seriousness when regulating the conduct of the profession.
"There was no evidence to suggest that the teacher was acting under duress, and in fact the panel found the teacher's actions to be calculated in as far as her recollection of events varied on occasion depending on who she was speaking to."

The Australian Maths teacher did not attend the misconduct hearing and "has not expressed any remorse or guilt" for her actions.
Miss Millions added: "The teacher did have a previously good history but the panel also believes Miss Rossenberg's lack of engagement with the process indicates a lack of insight arising from her deep-seated attitudinal issues.
