Waltz claims she was actually fired twice.
"They didn't follow procedure and gave the first recommendation for my termination before the July 1 board meeting," she said. After she was handed a second termination letter Waltz said, "they just bought me a new iMac because I'm on the payroll until Sept. 11 and now the taxpayers are expected to pay for their mistakes."
Waltz said she wants to continue her career and does not want to be "black listed" for being fired from the Bethlehem district.
Delmar resident Lisa Wilkinson said her son enjoyed the class and spoke very highly of Waltz.
"My son Daniel had her last year for Chinese and it was a good class, he really loved it," she said. "That was his favorite class whatever she did or however she did it, he was encouraged and interested about China."
Wilkinson said China became the talk of the dinner table last school year.
"You have all these classes everyday and we didn't hear about them," she said. "We heard about China."
