A teacher in Ohio is suing her school district for discrimination, saying it forced her to teach younger students despite her fear of children. Mariemont school district reassigned 61-year-old Maria C. Waltherr-Willard, a French teacher for 35 years, from high school to junior high school.
The suit claims that the school district knew about Waltherr-Willards phobia of children, which she apparently has suffered from since the 1990s, and pressured her to resign.
The fear of young children is real. Its called pedophobia and has the following symptoms: terror, dread, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, nausea, dry-mouth and anxiety.

HUH? Well, at least there is a name for what I felt leaving the hospital after the birth of my first child......got over it though.
Someone fishing for early retirement.
Fire her, hire someone young + qualified.
I can’t figure out if she’s an idiot or a genius.
I should sue her....
I’m afraid of clowns.
A teacher with a phobia of children? That is like an auto mechanic afraid of wrenches....
People will sue for anything
The Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves.
I’ve always wanted to work high steel construction but I don’t like heights.
Surely there must be a way for me to get paid for my inability to do what I love.
I’m afraid of (the ignorance of) public school graduates.
Where do I file?
I figured what it is.
She is a high school teacher. They want her to teach Junior High. I quite agree that Junior High kids are not as well behaved as Senior High are. She has been a HS teacher for years and she is used to their maturity. Yes they are more “mature” than Junior High.
She damn sure is not a genus. So with apologies to idiots everywhere.....
A local teacher my sons had in grade school doesn’t fear children, she just hates them, especially boys.
I love boating....I guess if I lived in a state with no “boatable” water I could sue....
“She damn sure is not a genus. So with apologies to idiots everywhere.....”
Hah, hah!! Ouch!
If she is not a genus; how about a species?
We had a law professor who claimed she was incapacitated by teaching and went on disability. Then sued us for not screening her for extreme teaching anxiety. She looked like one of Obama’s daughters.
And she won!
I dunno, she might have a point.
I drive past the local HS and see the thugs coming out of it at the end of the day.
This ain’t our days in school, it’s a different world and time.
screw this abandon public education now i don’t care! do it i am saying this as a proud single unmarried man (thank God) get your kids out of govt schools if u dont ur own fault!
fear of kids??
Became a teacher??
Not too bright is she??
I haven’t met a “mature” person under 40 in a long while
