The teacher arrived in court on Thursday, where she was accused of 18 accounts of abuse and 35 accounts of assaulting children.
After hearing claims of the families, a 12-16 year sentence was requested. "I want to apologize to the kids, the parents. I'm ashamed of everything I did, I'm ashamed of myself, I live it every day. It's something I experience day and night, it will remain with me all my life. I want to apologize to the whole audience," the teacher appealed to the courtroom.
"I'm ashamed of myself, I regret it. I ask the Honorable Judge to consider me, in the things I went through, not only in what I did. I hope they forgive me," she said.
