Teacher Suspended for Inappropriate Touching with a Student
How far is too far for physical interactions between a teacher and her students? For Cheryl Grampa, a teacher at Cooper City Elementary School in Florida, she crossed the line when she asked her students for a massage.
During the 2009-2010 school year, there was at least one incident when Grampa solicited a student for a massage. Grampa is not being charged with any criminal behaviors, but the specifics of the interaction between her and the student have not been released. The school district claims that Grampa violated the Florida Administrative Code and the Code of Ethics of the Education Professional.
According to the official complaint which was filed by the school district, Grampa “engaged in inappropriate conduct and contact with a minor student ranging from soliciting and allowing students to massage her, in exchange for rewards, allowing students to touch her in an inappropriate manner and failing to take reasonable and corrective action with respect to improper touching.”
Superintendent Jim Notter recommended that Grampa be suspended for five-days and attend classroom management training sessions. The suspension will be Grampa’s “last chance” and if she makes any future violations, she will be fired.
