Woodhaven High School teacher accused of sexting 2 students resigns

Teacher accused of sending raunchy text messages to two students

BROWNSTOWN, Mich. – A Woodhaven High School teacher who is accused of inappropriate contact with two students resigned from the Woodhaven Brownstown School District on Friday, the school district administration said. 

On June 10, two 17-year-old students reported that their teacher had sent inappropriate text messages to them and that she also reportedly touched one of the student’s genitals through his pants.

The teacher in question was immediately placed on administrative leave, and was escorted off the property after the reports from the students were deemed credible through investigations.

A meeting to discuss the accusations was scheduled for Wednesday, but the teacher refused to attend.

By Thursday, the District Administration concluded its investigation and began drafting charges in conformance with the Michigan Teachers Tenure Act to call for her termination.

The teacher in question resigned the next day and the Superintendent accepted the resignation on behalf of the board.

The investigation has been handed over to the Michigan Department of Education with requests for the teacher’s certificate to be withdrawn and canceled.

The Brownstown Police Department along with Child Protective Services have been notified as investigations continue.
