I find your actions justified. There are laws against teachers physically punishing students nowadays

File a written report of what you witnessed and get her fired.

Did your curse actually happen? If not then you might want to watch carefully since you didn't put any limits on what can happen. (not that I expect something to actually happen)

Injustice is there to be countered - but I would not agree that getting the teacher fired or getting her to fall down stairs is actually going to lead to a just outcome.

Believe it or not, justice is natural. Those who offend get slapped down anyway, sooner or later. The human element standing up and intervening can seem pretty tame compared to natural justice.

Whether or not you are part of that is anyone's guess. Maybe. Wouldn't surprise me.

It's no example to be setting, but I regret that adults kick each other too. And indeed do FAR WORSE things to each other. Not something to be proud of. :(

OK. Did the person she kicked do anything bad? Probably.

Could her kick be justified, in preventing a dangerous situation from occurring, like, kicking him away from a dangerous situation? Probably not.

My guess is, she had to intervene, but the kick was inappropriate.

Is she going to kick again when it isn't necessary? Perhaps.

You can see why the non-psionic "shop her - write the report" is maybe a better choice, for prevention of the same episode (she might not get fired, just retrained or swapped to a different age range).

Doing it the psionic way gets YOU personal satisfaction. But she doesn't learn anything (I really, really doubt she will believe that YOU are responsible for her falling down the stairs - even if you are). That means it's more like to happen again.

Consequences... something adults are supposed to be better at than children. I guess there are a lot of adults that still ARE children.
