A former Ohio schoolteacher is suing her former employer, Mariemont School District in the Cincinnati area, because she says it discriminated against her by making her teach kids.  Maria Waltherr-Willard, 61, claims she suffers from Pedophobia, a fear of children.

According to news sources, Waltherr-Willard, who had been teaching high school since 1976, said that after the district transferred her to a middle school in 2009, the younger student body set off her phobia, causing her to suffer chest pains, vomiting, high blood pressure and ultimately forcing her into retirement. Waltherr-Willard said the phobia is covered under the American with Disabilities Act and the transfer violated the law.
