She is gonna get coal in her stocking. What a Scrooge.

We don't push the Santa issue here. But I wouldn't want my child's teacher telling them anything about Santa.

 I hope she's fired...  I couldnt imagine someone so callous and insensitive teaching my kids... if she isnt fired and one of my kids was her student or future student, we'd be finding a new class OR new school if possible

 Not just for that reason.  Children should have a little fantasy in there lives.  Part of today's youth is they grow up so fast that they never learn that its ok to have and use an imagination.   Children NEED to believe in Santa, the Easter Bunny, that Mom and/or Dad are the greatest super heroes in the world, that their world is absolutely safe and thats its ok that they have a that little place in there mind that contains there own private world that no one can invade or take away.

Not her place. And even though I don't tell my kid's Santa is real, (even though my son mentioned something about Santa bringing something this year...ugh) I'd be ready to shove coal down her throat if I was one of those children's parents.
