A New Jersey teacher will not return to her job this Christmas after she told a class of six and seven-year-olds that Santa Claus is not right.
Officials said that the substitution teacher, whose identity is not known, had also lost other semester characters, including the Easter canine and dental, last week.
This upset her first class students at Cedar Hills School in the northeastern state of New Jersey.
School Principal Michael Raj sent a letter to the parents on Thursday (6 Dec) and apologizes for the teacher’s actions, says local media.
He added that he had talked with the teacher about her poor judgment.
“As a father of four myself, I am really aware of the delicate character of this announcement,” he told the local news site NJ.com.
Montville superintendent in schools Rene Rovtar confirmed in a statement on Tuesday to Sender News 1
2 New Jersey that the teacher would no longer work in dis trict.
Ms. Rovtar said that she was worried and upset about what had happened and added that “the childhood child in connection with all the holidays and traditions” is special to her.
She also went to Twitter to share a photo
A parent told News 12 New Jersey last week that her six-year-old daughter Addriana was extremely upset after hearing the teacher’s words.
Msra Sansone-Aboyoun said, “I was heartbreaked. You know that my daughter is the greatest believer in Christmas and Santa.”
It was not clear if the teacher was fired or left the district voluntarily.
