When it comes to teachers ‘playing’ with their students, one usually thinks it’s male educators who are the culprits but one would often be wrong, as this gallery of female teachers charged for hooking up with their students proves.
While it is so often a case of “he said, she said,” these teachers were actually convicted for carrying on with their students. I had a crush on one particular teacher when I was a little one, unrequited though it was had it become something else I really don't think I would have been reporting it to anyone!
In this day and age, the incidents of teachers and students getting together are rife, and that can be shown from court records. So what possesses an educator to go to bed with a student, sometimes even on school grounds?
I will let you draw your own conclusions on this one.
This ex-educator and long-time cheerleading coach has that look about her in this picture, taken in court. She was fired in 2012 after pictures of her naked were circulated around the school. It later turned out that Preston had sent these images to at least three of the male students she taught.
Debra Lafave, from Florida, was charged twice for having full sex with a 14-year-old student under her care. She never went to jail as the kid’s mother spoke out against it. Lafave is now married and has twins.
Deanna Higgins was a well-accomplished science teacher, until she hooked up with a 16-year-old student from her class. Her panties were found by the cops in the back of the kid’s car, which she had allegedly left for him as a souvenir of their experiences together.
Would you have reported these women?
She was a teacher at a staunchly Christian school, until she was arrested for allegedly sending lewd text messages to one of her female students. In this case, the husband and wife were apparently trying to seduce the young girl together.
Shelley Dufresne and Rachel Respess
This Louisiana high school duo allegedly had a threesome with a 16-year-old student at the home of Rachel Respess. Even though these three met regularly for a year to get to know each other better, only the two teachers were the ones to get punished when the news got out from the student’s bragging.
Jessica Bonnett Acker
Jessica Bonnett Acker is one of the more unlucky women in today’s list, as she was penalized for allegedly hooking up with a 19-year-old student from her school, which is illegal in Alabama. The fact she started the affair with the student just a few months after she herself got married didn’t help her cause at all.
This ex-cheerleading coach was actually caught in the act, while having sex with a 17-year-old student in her care. It happened at an overnight school trip, where the teacher is said to have plied the kid with alcohol, engaging in numerous sexual acts with him.
This High School teacher from Utah is accused of having sex with one of her students, who was just 16 at the time. A second student came forward at the time and claimed he also had relations with Altice. Amazingly, when she was released on bail she ended up having more relations with one of the students and is now facing up to ten separate felony charges.
