A kindergarten teacher has been fired after encouraging her students to taste her blood.
Another instructor at the kindergarten, Inger Lise Soemme Anderson, told Reuters that the teacher - whose name has not been released - brought in a sample of her own blood, then put it on a plate for the children to look at.
Soemme Anderson said the kids asked if they could touch the blood, and the teacher said yes. When the children asked how to get it off their fingers, the teacher put her finger in her mouth so the students could follow her example.
One of the students told another school employee about the incident, which took place on Tuesday, and the teacher admitted that she did it. She told school authorities that at least one of the students tasted the blood, but said she couldn't remember if any of the 11 other students had done so.
The teacher is being tested for HIV/AIDs and other blood-borne pathogens.
Sadly, this isn't the first time a teacher's bodily fluids have ended up in the mouths of young students. Last year, a Los Angeles teacher allegedly spoon-fed his semen elementary school children.
