(Orlando Sentinel) The Lyman High math teacher who displayed a crude, wooden carving of a penis in class was fired Tuesday by the Seminole County School Board.

Jeanne Michaud, who had worked in the school district since 1982, lost her job because she displayed the vulgar object and cursed and used other inappropriate language in her classroom, officials said.

She had a long history of discipline problems, most for using sarcastic or profane language, but was also viewed as a top-notch teacher by some parents and students.
