A teacher who said President Donald Trump’s senior adviser Stephen Miller ate glue as a child is back in the classroom after being investigated by school officials.

Nikki Fiske, 72, was placed on “home assignment,” or paid leave, by Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) after she revealed accounts of having Miller, 33, in her 1993 class to The Hollywood Reporter on Oct. 10.

“Franklin Elementary School teacher, Ms. Nikki Fiske, has returned to her classroom assignment,” SMMUSD spokeswoman Gail Pinsker said, the Santa Monica Daily Press reported Thursday. “We have conducted a thoughtful review and we have addressed the matter with the teacher.”

Fiske was under investigation because the district was concerned that she released “student information, including allegations that may not have complied with applicable laws and district policies,” Pinsker said, the Los Angeles Times reported on Oct. 11.

The article described 8-year-old Miller allegedly eating glue.

“I remember he would take a bottle of glue — we didn’t have glue sticks in those days — and he would pour the glue on his arm, let it dry, peel it off and then eat it,” Fiske said to The Reporter.

Fiske also said Miller was a “loner” and a “strange dude.”

Miller has supported stricter policies on immigration-related issues, like suspending Chinese student visas, and supported a zero-tolerance policy to halt illegal immigration into the U.S.

Miller disputed with administrators and called into conservative radio shows while he attended Santa Monica High School. He also worked for former Rep. Michele Bachmann and Attorney General Jeff Sessions prior to being a part of the Trump administration, The Daily Press reported.
