A former Broward County elementary school teacher accused of offering students rewards in exchange for massages can no longer teach in Florida, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.
Cheryl Grampa, 46, resigned almost a year ago but was issued an order this month by the Florida Education Practices Commission, the newspaper said.
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.
Robert Runcie, the Broward County School District Superintendent, agreed with the revoking of her license, but doesn't know why she was not fired, the Sentinel said.
