This 2011 photo shows Maria Waltherr-Willard, 61, who taught Spanish and French at Mariemont High School in Cincinnati from 1976 until 2009, when she was transferred to the district's middle school. Waltherr-Willard is suing the school district where she used to work, accusing its administrators of discriminating against her because of a rare phobia she says she has: a fear of young children.
