Former Broward County, Fla., elementary school teacher Cheryl Grampa (pictured), who stands accused of allowing some of her students to massage her to a “happy ending,” has lost her license to teach in her state, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
The 46-year-old educator, who taught at Cooper City Elementary School, allegedly offered students rewards in exchange for the inappropriate massages.
In one instance, a boy reportedly massaged her breasts and vagina, but she failed to notify school authorities of the liberties that were taken by the child.
The massages were said to have taken place between August 2009 and February 2010.
According to the school board, Grampa’s offenses ranged from “soliciting and allowing students to massage her, in exchange for rewards; allowing students to touch her in an inappropriate manner and failing to take reasonable and corrective action with respect to improper touching.”

School district officials delved in to the allegations regarding the 12-year teaching veteran and determined that Grampa should be suspended for five days and undergo classroom management training and psychological testing as well.
Last year, Grampa underwent two psychological evaluations, one in May and the other in November. The findings from both administered evaluations deemed Grampa “unfit for duty as a classroom teacher.”
Grampa, who also failed to attend the state’s discussion of her case last September, resigned from her teaching duties last December.
Despite her improprieties, Grampa has had no criminal charges filed against her and has since relocated to Texas.
Unfortunately, Grampa stands alongside three other teachers in the county who have lost their licenses this year because of their indecorous acts.
Forty-year-old former music teacher David Lyman was found guilty of molesting a few of his elementary school students. Susan Rae Kepper, 31, a former high school reading teacher, had the kabosh put on her teaching license for allegedly having sex with an 18-year-old student. In addition, a state complaint accuses Christine Lammer, 36, a former high school English teacher, of supposedly sending four nude photos of herself to a 17-year-old male student.
