POST #84: This week I’m sharing some research on two female high school teachers.

To anyone living in the mid-west, camping out when school is on winter break in December must sound crazy. When you live near the beach, it’s perfectly normal. A warm campfire and sleeping under the stars can be a lot of fun.

For these two teachers, it may have been fun at the time, but the fun didn’t last. The 38-year-old teacher sent a group text message to a 30-year-old friend and fellow teacher, and to five male students. She asked them to join her at the beach to camp under the stars. All accepted.

During the campout, the teachers provided alcohol and cocaine to the boys. The teachers also had sex with some of the boys. Four of the five students were over 18.

When their school district learned about the camp out, both teachers were placed on paid administrative leave. And the school notified authorities.

Both teachers were arrested and originally charged with one felony count each of unlawful sexual intercourse and providing a controlled substance to a minor. The younger teacher was also charged with a felony count of oral copulation of a minor.

The older teacher pleaded guilty to one felony count of unlawful sexual intercourse. She was sentenced to three years formal probation and three months in jail stayed pending completion of 15 days of community service working with the state transportation department (typically the road crew).

The younger teacher pleaded guilty to one felony count of unlawful sexual intercourse and one felony count of furnishing a controlled substance. She was sentenced to three years formal probation and 180 days in jail stayed pending completion of 180 days in a lock-down rehabilitation facility.

Both teachers resigned from their positions. Per the state education code, both teachers’ credentials were revoked for life.

Worth mentioning: Another teacher (male) used social media to express his frustration with the students because they didn’t keep their mouths’ shut and enjoy it. He was placed on paid administrative leave for unprofessional conduct. A district spokeswoman was quoted to have said: “We expect teachers to maintain a level of professionalism in their classroom and in their social media presence as well.”
