KANSAS CITY, Missouri (KSHB) --A Kansas City, Missouri kindergarten teacher is recovering after being assaulted by an angry parent.

It began Thursday when a disgruntled parent, Simone Baker, got into an altercation with Truman Elementary School teacher Phyllis White.

Police say when the school's principal told Baker she needed to come back the next day if she wanted to talk to discuss the incident, Baker ran out of the office and back down to White's classroom.
