A former Elmwood Park teacher arrested on low-degree child abuse charges had her teaching license revoked by state officials.

Ashley L. Frabizzio, 34, of Butler was taken into custody in 2015 after a school administrator at the Sixteenth Avenue Elementary School notified authorities, the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office said in a release.

Frabizzio was accused of "forcibly grabbing and pushing" one 9-year-old in her care into a chair and shoving another to the floor "causing him to hit his head on a piece of furniture," according to the criminal complaints filed along with her arrest in December 2015.

The State Board of Examiners revoked all of Frabizzio's teaching certificates on May 17, including:

  • Teacher of Students with Disabilities Certificate of Eligibility;
  • Teacher of Elementary School in Grades K-5;
  • Teacher of Preschool-3 Certificates of Eligibility with Advanced Standing;
  • Teacher of Elementary School in Grades K-5;
  • Teacher of Preschool3.
