Investigators with the Broward County School District said Grampa had inappropriate conduct with students between August 2009 and February 2010 at Cooper City Elementary School, including a time during which a student touched her private area, according to a complaint.

Grampa, who did not face criminal charges, was suspended for five days and ordered to take classroom management training, a decision made by the school board. In 2011 two psychological evaluations ruled her "unfit for duty as a classroom teacher," the paper reported.
