Teacher in Trouble for “Cone of Shame”

A Florida teacher’s job is in jeopardy after it was found that she had put a dog collar on several of her students as a form of punishment.

The collar sometimes called the “cone of shame” is intended to prevent dogs and cats from chewing on wounds or themselves after surgery.  The teacher placed the cone on as many as eight different students after showing the Pixar movie “Up”, where a dog wearing such a cone appears.  That apparently is where the teacher got the idea.

A letter from the Pasco county Superintendent states, “…your actions show extremely poor judgment and concern me for several reasons. I am stunned that you would put dog collars on students for any reason.  I am very concerned that you used this collar to punish and embarrass students in front of their peers.”

Students defending the teacher claim that it was all a joke and are worried that the teacher will lose her job.

World’s Best Last Tweet

“Thank you God for another year of life.”

That was the final tweet from birthday girl, Ariane Noelle Patterson, a college student at Gardner-Webb University.

A senior studying religious studies, she collapsed in a class on her 21st birthday hours after sending out that final tweet.  The cause of her death is under investigation and school officials did not know if she suffered from a previous medical condition.

Students performed CPR on her while emergency crews were on their way, she died later at the hospital.
