No matter how you raise your children, and what they believe, there are certain things that a teacher should NOT discuss with them, and belief in Santa Claus might be paramount in NOT mentioning.

A substitute teacher in Ohio was just fired after she told a third grade classroom that Santa wasn’t real.

From Breitbart:

The substitute teacher allegedly told the students during her class at Sterling Elementary School in Mentor, WJW reported.

“She immediately just broke into tears, and she said the teacher told her Santa Claus isn’t real, Christmas isn’t real and Christmas elves aren’t real — it’s all made up. I was angry. I was heartbroken. I want to know why she felt it was OK to shatter a childhood — anybody’s childhood,” parent Ashley Coughenour told WITI.

When the principal heard about the incident, she made individual phone calls to the parents of each student to apologize for the teacher’s behavior.

The school district released a statement saying the substitute’s comments were made in “poor taste” and that she is not welcome at the school.
