The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Maria C. Waltherr-Willard, a 35-year veteran teacher from the Mariemont school district in Ohio, is suing the district and claiming to have a phobia of children.
Waltherr-Willard alleges that the school district discriminated against her in 2010 when it reassigned her from high school to junior high, because district officials had purportedly promised that she wouldn’t be required to teach young children.
According to the Enquirer, Waltherr-Willard’s alleged disability is pedophobia, “an extreme fear or anxiety around young children.” Waltherr-Willard is claiming that the presence of young children has caused her to suffer chest pains, vomiting, stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, and nightmares.
The good news is that Waltherr-Willard is 61 years old and has retired, relieving future generations of students from developing phobias of large, irresponsible school teachers with long, hyphenated names who hate them.
