Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #190: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving a young high school orchestra teacher.

His high school alma mater hired him as a teacher four years after he’d graduated. His tenure with the high school lasted less than two years.

Inappropriate Behavior

As his second school year began, so did communication between the teacher and two students—a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old. Then the subject matter quickly shifted to sexual content and photos on SnapChat.

Robin Lyons School News BlogBLOG POST #177: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving a 15-year-old high school student and her 50-year-old teacher.

It was her first year in public school. She’d been home-schooled through eighth grade.

He’d been with the high school for six years, teaching health sciences.

She’d been a student in his forensics class when another student said they’d witnessed the student and teacher kiss in his classroom. The accusation was unsubstantiated but the rumors were rampant and triggered the following events.

Crossing The Line

The morning the teacher disappeared with his student he’d left a note for his wife. He said he needed to get away and ‘clear his head.’ He took with him  $4,500 and two prescription refills of an erectile dysfunction medication.

Sadly, there was a school shooting this week at a middle school in Indiana. The motive is unknown. Someone learned of the threat and called in to report it. The authorities acted fast, the school went into lock-down, and the only casualty was the shooter who took his own life. My heart hurts for all involved including the family of the deceased. Brave accolades go to the person who saw something and said something.

Predator in the Classroom

The case research I’m sharing in this post is disturbing. It boggles my mind why an adult would want to harm a child in any way.

Teachers, in general, have long been considered someone a child can trust based merely on their job title. Sadly, this is no longer the case and possibly was a false belief all along.

Parents are the best judge of character for whom to trust to be alone with their child. I believe when parents are actively involved in schools, the odds increase that their child won’t be abused by a school employee.
