Riverdale teacher pleads not guilty

A Riverdale kindergarten teacher videotaped shoving her student has pleaded not guilty to child endangerment.

School surveillance footage last month captured Barb Williams pushing 6-year-old Ian Nelson and picking him up by his shirt and face.

Williams, of Mount Blanchard, was scheduled for arraignment this morning in Findlay Municipal Court. She instead submitted a written not guilty plea on Monday to the first-degree misdemeanor charge.

Her case is next scheduled for a July 1 pretrial with Judge Jonathan Starn.
