School officials say a substitute teacher who told 1st graders in New Jersey that Santa Claus isn't real will not be returning to the school.

Montville schools Superintendent Rene Rovtar said last week that the teacher will no longer work in the district after the incident occurred at Cedar Hill School.

Officials say the teacher also debunked other holiday characters, including the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and Elf on a Shelf.
