SAN ANTONIO —

A former San Antonio teacher accused of directing students to hit a schoolmate for being a bully has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Cynthia Ambrose also was ordered Tuesday to serve two years' probation. She was convicted in June of official oppression, a misdemeanor.

Prosecutors say the 44-year-old former kindergarten teacher at Salinas Elementary School told her students in May 2012 to line up and hit the 6-year-old boy so he knows "how it feels to be bullied."

The San Antonio Express-News reports (http://bit.ly/1aoPkSt ) state District Judge Sid Harle said he wants to prevent Ambrose from teaching for two years, the maximum probation term allowed.

He is allowing her to serve the jail sentence on work release or to report to the Bexar (bayr) County Jail on weekends.
