Elementary School Teacher Suspended For Asking Kids To Give Her Massages

BROWARD COUNTY, Florida - The Broward School Board on Tuesday suspended a Cooper City Elementary School teacher accused of soliciting a massage from students.

Schools Superintendent Jim Notter recommended a five-day suspension for Cheryl Grampa, 45, for at least one incident that occurred during the 2009-10 school year, according to an administrative complaint filed by the school district.

The suspension was upheld by the school board Tuesday morning without debate.

Grampa has been teaching since 1998, long enough to know better than to ask a student for a massage, said Notter. He also wants Grampa to undergo classroom management training and for the suspension to serve as a "last chance," allowing the district to fire her for any future violation.

The complaint does not go into specifics on what Grampa is accused of doing, but the infraction appears to fall short of criminal behavior. Grampa hasn't been charged with any crime, and the complaint refers to violations of the Florida Administrative Code and the Code of Ethics of the Education Professional.

According to the complaint, 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."

Her actions were "sufficiently notorious to bring [Grampa] and/or the education profession into public disgrace or disrespect," the complain states.

Efforts to reach Grampa on Monday were unsuccessful.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.
