Van Amstel says his son said “he’s thankful that he’s finally being adopted by his two dads.” He says the substitute teacher gave her “very clear opinion that ‘two men is wrong, homosexuality is wrong.'”

ABC News reports “three students went to notify the school’s principal, according to van Amstel. The three students had asked her to stop multiple times, but she refused, he said.”

The school, Deerfield Elementary School in Cedar Hills, Utah,

“I am so proud of Daniel’s school,” van Amstel, a professional choreographer who has appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” says. “Not only did they let go of the teacher, but they said this woman is never going to teach in this school ever again.”
