VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 19 (UPI) -- A respected Vancouver, British Columbia, teacher was reprimanded for using duct tape to quiet the mouths of students, a regulatory board announced.

Margo Fowler, a math teacher at Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School, received a reprimand from the British Columbia Teacher Regulation Branch, citing professional misconduct in three incidents in which overly-talkative students had their mouths closed with duct tape, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Wednesday.

Fowler is rated as a top-notch teacher on a website inviting students to evaluate teachers. The CBC noted students' comments describe her a "helpful," "entertaining," and "Just. Plain. Awesome."
