It Happened In Florida

Lillian Gomez is a teacher of autistic children at Sunrise Elementary in Kissimmee, FL and she may have made a misstep in trying to get the kiddos to stop eating crayons.

Gomez put hot sauce on the crayons.

This, of course, caused outrage with parents as they cannot understand why a veteran teacher would take such an odd step with children who cannot really express themselves normally.  The hot sauce was traumatic enough that the children refused to touch the crayons for weeks. (peet:  I would like to put out that it obviously worked)

Gomez was suspended and removed from the classroom when district officials found out, but now there is pressure from parents for her to be fired.
