Prince William County elementary teacher charged with assault

A Prince William County elementary school teacher has been arrested for assaulting a 10-year-old boy, county police say.

Police arrested Cynthia F. Hall, 35, of the 11000 Block of Golden Eagle Court in Woodbridge. Hall is a teacher at Kerrydale Elementary School, also in Woodbridge.

Police say the boy reported the assault May 17 at school where he sustained “minor injuries,” according to police.

Hall, who has been charged with assault and battery, said in her bio posted on Kerrydale’s Web site that she is in her 11th year of teaching. She also writes that she is a first-year doctoral student at George Mason University.

A school system spokesperson could not immediately be reached Wednesday.

Hall has been released on $2,000 bond and does not yet have a court date.
