Kindergarten teacher fired after letting students taste her blood

A kindergarten teacher was fired after letting students taste her blood, Reuters reported.

According to the wire service, as many as a dozen students attending kindergarten at a school in Sola, Norway, may have sampled the blood of the unnamed teacher after she brought a vial of it to class for show and tell following a visit to the doctor.

"The children asked if they could touch it and she allowed them," head teacher Inger Lise Soemme Andersen told Reuters. "Then they asked 'how do we get it off?' so she put her finger in her mouth and the children followed suit.

"The parents are mortified, shaken and shocked."

The teacher was tested for AIDS and Hepatitis B following the incident, according to Reuters.
