ZEPHYRHILLS, FL. (CNN) - a Florida teacher's bad idea could cost her her job.  A science teacher forced students to put on a dog collar as punishment.  The collar was referred to as the "cone of shame".

The teacher got busted when pictures of her students popped up on Facebook.

She says students who showed up late for class got the option of wearing the cone or sitting at a tardy table.

The teacher adds that it was inspired by the movie, "up" and was only meant as a joke.

Some students are supporting the teacher saying it was a fun distraction and wasn't embarrassing.
