Rockland teacher apologizes for saying there is no Santa
The Rockland County teacher who told her class that Santa Claus was not real has apologized for her remarks.
Leatrice Ann Eng, a second-grade teacher at Nanuet George Miller Elementary Schools, said she was sorry this weekend after the story became national news.
It started with a geography lesson, and when kids said the North Pole is where Santa lives.
The 58-year-old teacher reportedly responded he did not exist and that Christmas presents were bought by their parents.
The school superintendent has said his office is looking into the matter.
