A schoolyard fight with a student led to the discharge of a Toronto District School Board (TDSB) employee.

On Sept. 25, 2012, Sylvia Hatzantonis picked up her 13-year-old daughter from school. Hatzantonis found her daughter crying and determined there had been an altercation with another student, referred to as EM.

Hatzantonis confronted EM. That confrontation was recorded by one of the student spectators. In the video, Hatzantonis can be seen shouting at EM, swearing at EM and calling him and his mother vulgar names and telling EM she works for the TDSB, saying she could find out information about him.
