(NEWSER) – New York City has dumped a substitute teacher after she asked a 4th-grade class in the Bronx what she should do about her love life. Cassandre Fiering, 45, acted out scenarios with the PS 189 class as they helped her choose between two 30-something men in her life, DNAinfo New York reports. Fiering described the incident, which took place in June of last year, as harmless fun. The kids "were excited to have me listen to their advice," which was to break up with the younger of the two since he wasn't calling her. "It was also G-rated." Be that as it may, the Department of Education began a probe after school officials learned about the "counseling" from the kids, and Fiering was fired in December. She is now appealing that decision.
