She received a two-year suspended sentence and can no longer work at a school.

Sponsler was accused of exposing herself to students by doing a cartwheel in class while not wearing any underwear.

A police report says Sponsler initially denied it happened, telling police she didn't remember doing a cartwheel, but, instead was dancing with students trying to be a 'cool teacher.'
