A fifth-grade teacher in Ohio says she was fired for publicly shaming a school bully.

Nicole LeMire was a teacher at Glen Oak Elementary in Lewis Center, Ohio,

She caught the student blowing his nose on other students, pushing them and using inappropriate language, so she called him out in front of the class.

According to NBC 4, she wanted to teach the boy a lesson.

“I said ‘do you know how your actions and your words are hurting other students and your friends,'” LeMire said. “That’s it.”

According to the Olentangy Schools board’s resolution, she let the students tell the boy how he’d hurt them.

The school district says her exchange with the boy was bullying in its own right, and they fired her.

LeMire plans to sue the school district and has set up a GoFundMe account to pay for her lawsuit.

On the account page, she wrote: “I am asking for your help as I continue my fight against the Olentangy Local School District for wrongfully terminating my contract. As I believe in this cause wholeheartedly, it is going to be costly. If you find it in your heart to give monetarily toward the amount of my legal fees, I would be most grateful.”
