MULLICA TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey kindergarten teacher who reported two five-year-olds after they emerged from a bathroom and said they had engaged in sex play will not lose her job.

An arbitrator refused to uphold tenure charges brought against Mullica Township teacher Kelly Mascio.

The 16-year veteran is entitled to almost four months of back pay. But the arbitrator found Mascio failed to supervise her students and issued a 10-day suspension.

Mascio was suspended with pay soon after the September 2013 incident and without pay since late February.

Her lawyer, Michael Damm, tells The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/1sBaGpD ) his client is grateful the arbitrator determined she should be reinstated.
