Kindergarten Teacher Brings Vial of Her Own Blood for Sharing & That's Not the Worst Part!

blood vialsAh, kindergarten memories: Fingerpainting. Playdough. Singing the alphabet song. And who can forget Show & Tell? Definitely not the Norwegian kindergarten class whose teacher brought in a VIAL OF HER OWN BLOOD for "sharing time." Nope, I have a feeling those kids will remember that extremely unconventional and potentially bio-hazardous experience for a long, long time. Why would a kindergarten teacher bring in a vial of her own blood to show the class? Here's a better question: Why would a kindergarten teacher bring in a vial of her own blood and let the kids TASTE it?!

Well, I'm not sure. The teacher has since been fired and, as a result, isn't talking. All the director of the kindergarten, Inger Lise Andersen, knows is that the "unnamed teacher had returned from a visit to the doctor, where she asked a nurse if she could have some of her blood in a vial to take with her to class."

Once back in class, the teacher emptied out the vial on to a plate and passed it around. Says Andersen, "The children asked if they could touch it and she allowed them. Then they asked, 'How do we get it off?' so she put her finger in her mouth and the children followed suit."

Um, HORROR!!!! Holy crap!! What the hell would possess a kindergarten teacher to do any of the above crazy-ass things?! The blood has been sent out to be tested for HIV/AIDS and any other bloodborne diseases, so hopefully the kids won't get any horrible illnesses from what will undoubtedly go down in history as the worst day of kindergarten ever. But criiiiiiiiiiiiiipes. If my kid's kindergarten teacher did this, I'd ... I'd ... I don't know what I'd do, honestly. Freak the hell out, that's for sure.

What would you do if your kid's kindergarten teacher did this?

Okay, bringing the vial I can honestly understand. Teaching them to not be afraid of blood, learning about a normal medical procedure...

But OPENING it, passing around OPEN blood, and having them lick it off their fingers?!

Is this lady on fucking crack?

What is that blood fetish called when you want to have other people drink your blood? Not hematolagnia. Thats just blood on a partner. Considering the sexual nature of such a fetish, she needs to be analyzed and investigated to determine if she just violated those kids for her own sexual gratification. And yes, I am serious.

I'd be delving into the rest of her lesson plans if she thought nothing of pulling a stunt like this!! What a crazy b**ch...

Why would that nurse let her walk out of the office with A VIAL OF BLOOD. Where they do that at?

As a teacher myself, that is a totally crazy thing to do. I could MAYBE see bringing in the vial of blood to show the kids (it's not something I would do, but still...). But to pass it around and then encourage the children to lick it off their fingers?! Gross, unsafe, unsanitary, and totallly inappropriate! No way! I wouldn't even encourage a child to lick his/her own blood off their fingers. It's not sanitary!

Personally, I think it's kinda neat that she brought in blood to show. But it goes from "neat" to "completely sik and twisted" the second she opened that vial.
