    FL - Sub teacher hears disembodied voices, calls sheriff, threatens to call POTUS

    Deputies: Substitute teacher ordered off Deltona campus after hearing voices (news-journalonline.com)
    A second-grade substitute teacher was told not to return to a Deltona elementary school after she claimed there were people outside her classroom yelling obscenities but it was all in her head, sheriff's officials said.

    The principal of Pride Elementary School ended up removing the substitute teacher from the school campus after she started rambling about the CIA and the FBI, and saying she was calling the president of the United States, a report shows.

    A deputy made contact with the substitute teacher in the principal's office after 9 a.m. Friday. She said she called the Volusia County Sheriff's Office because she could hear people screaming and cursing outside her classroom. The woman said she could not see anyone, just hear them, the investigating deputy said.
    The woman got very upset several times with the deputies on the scene and kept saying she was going to call the President of the United States about this incident again as she claims to have spoken with him before about this, the report states.

    The article didn't say how the kids were dealing with what happened. Article also doesn't say if parents were called.
    Can you imagine the stories these kids are going to go home with?

    Funny thing. If she had gotten herself on meds she probably could have continued to teach and no one would be the wiser. Or at worst they might have thought her a little odd. Now she will have trouble finding a teaching job again.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    How disgusting! The poor lady was called a taxi and escorted away from the school since she wasn't considered a danger to herself. I hope her employers at least tried to later reach family or someone in case they don't know what is happening. The lady may not have a teaching degree, just some college, depending on Daytona's substitite requirements.
