That's a new one. I could understand fear of high schoolers.

Looking for a huge settlement no doubt at taxpayer expense. Claims phobia makes her blood pressure soar putting her at risk of a stroke. It's the fact that she's a fat pig that's making her bp soar not the kids. She looks like Jabba The Hut for cryin' out loud! Lose some weight you fat cow.

I agree completely! Worst part is that they repeat it over and over and over and over again like a deranged mantra.

She probably really is afraid to be around kids. 7th and 8th graders can be little imps at that age and since she's never had any, she's probably not too fond of kids anyway. Too bad she didn't first consider a different profession. Obviously she wants the money to make up for lost wages, but 100 grand is a bit over the top. My brother was a biology teacher at a local high school and he said many of those kids were disrespectful and even dangerous. It takes a special kind of person to know how to deal with kids today. Times have changed when I was in school and now they have armed guards at the same school I graduated from many years ago. One kid is under suspension for bringing a gun to school and they're strongly considering expelling him.

Frivolous...
What she needs is to treat her phobia, not sue the school system.

Maybe she fears she just might eat one of the kids?

There should be no "Considering" involved, weapons at school should be grounds for immediate expulsion.
