A NINE-YEAR-OLD boy was suspended from school after a substitute teacher overheard him telling a friend he thought his fourth grade teacher was 'cute'.

"I was talking to my friend and I said Miss Taylor was cute," Emanyea Lockett told a local television news.

"That's all I said."

A substitute teacher at Brookside Elementary School, who overheard the remark, told the principal and Emenyea was suspended for two days.

A district spokeswoman refused to go into detail, but said Emanyea was suspended for "inappropriate behavior" after making "inappropriate statements."
