Magic trick costs teacher job

Quote:
Land 'O Lakes, Florida -- The stories in the news about inappropriate relationships between teachers and students have been overwhelming. There was even a substitute teacher in New Port Richey who got in trouble after investigators say she had a relationship with an underage student.

Well, another Pasco County substitute teacher's job is on the line, but this time it's because of a magic trick.

The charge from the school district — Wizardry!

Substitute teacher Jim Piculas does a 30-second magic trick where a toothpick disappears then reappears.

But after performing it in front of a classroom at Rushe Middle School in Land 'O Lakes, Piculas said his job did a disappearing act of its own.

"I get a call the middle of the day from the supervisor of substitute teachers. He says, 'Jim, we have a huge issue. You can't take any more assignments. You need to come in right away,'" he said.

When Piculas went in, he learned his little magic trick cast a spell that went much farther than he'd hoped.

"I said, 'Well Pat, can you explain this to me?' 'You've been accused of wizardry,' [he said]. Wizardry?" he asked.
. . . . . .


It was an at-will job. District would be in clear if they gave no reason, this might just be their downfall, being backwards 17th century witch believers.

I guess I missed this story while I was in....FLORIDA! :wink: (Yep, I was down there learning how to be a witch! ) :twisted:

This is outrageously stupid...even my school district doesn't go that far.

We had magic shows at school often during my teaching career. One couple (he was a magician, she was a ventriloquist) returned every year and did their show around the SAY NO TO DRUGS message. The kids had a great time...and so did we faculty members! :P
