- Metcalf Elementary Teacher Facing Assault Charges
January 18, 2018
Morenci, AZ: Three third-grade students from Metcalf Elementary were physically assaulted by their teacher, Mrs. Lundeen, on December 14, 2017. Two male students had their heads ”˜slammed’ into their desk; one student has visible bruises and a raised bump from the incident and was later taken to urgent care by his parents after complaining of headaches. The third student was dragged down the hallway by her sweater. It is unknown if she was otherwise injured.
According to the parents of one of the boys, after the school became aware of the incident the vice principal spoke with several other students in the classroom, all of them confirming the students’ version of events. The next day, Mrs. Lundeen went to the Morenci Unified School District office and resigned. Mrs. Lundeen is looking at three counts of aggravated assault on a minor, according to police.
Clifton Police are investigating the incident and once it is finished will turn their investigation over to the County Attorney’s Office. The students have returned to school, but not without struggle. The students were offered counseling by the school. One of the victim’s parents has turned to Phillips Law Group for support in this traumatic time.

Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day.
