Two high school teachers to be fired for inappropriate acts in class

SAVE-classroomPalm Beach County’s public school system is moving to fire two high school teachers after allegations of inappropriate behavior in the classroom.

Scott Erich Landstrom, who was a Suncoast High School physics teacher last year, is being recommended for termination after parents complained a year ago that he made inappropriate comments in class, including using the word “whore” during a lesson, school district records show.

Landstrom previously had been reprimanded for making inappropriate comments to students, records show.

Edwardo Zamora, a Forest Hill High School drama teacher last year, is being recommended for termination after complaints that he inappropriately touched several of his students.

According to a school district report, the allegations “included groping, touching, biting and sexual jokes.”

During an investigation, Zamora denied any wrongdoing, records show.

Superintendent Robert Avossa has recommended that both teachers be fired. School board members are expected to consider the recommendation today.
