What's this? Female on female? Kinda a twist.
These teachers are SO DUMB! Don't they know there are NO secrets out there?
Everyone is on cell phone texting, Facebook and Twitter. People talk.
Teaching career: over.

Here is a point to ponder.

I wonder how often these incidents happened before social media or electronic news media was popular?

Beyond that I wonder how often this may have taken place when both parties, willingly involved, were more discrete and didn't brag to friends or otherwise spill the beans?

Just wondering. You see, there were a few female teachers when I was in high school that if I had a chance.....Well, that's ancient history. Needless to say, my fantasies never played out, but I would not have been bragging about the fact so I could protect my source, in a manner of speaking.

Was the female teacher a soccer coach too?

Oh heavens no. When and where I grew up, soccer was one of those at that time obscure sports used to fill down time between 'real' sports. I don't believe many people even knew soccer existed. Or cared.

One was a French teacher, very suave and sophisticated, and the other a Social Studies as we called it then. She was quite young, not long out of college, and a free spirit. I recall once on a field trip, we lads suspected she wasn't wearing a bra. Spent the entire trip waiting for her to take off her vest so we could confirm our fondest suspicions, dreams, and fantasies. Those are the two who stand out in my memories of teenage lust.

To be young again.

I'm sorry Loner, I thought perhaps you were asking about my memories. My apologies.

I think it's soooooo great that we can try cases in "The City Paper". Why think of the money we'll save and think of not having to find parking.
Seriously, outside of titillation and something to snicker about.....so, where is the picture of this female teacher? A male teacher accused of sex with an underage female would have an eight by eleven glossy posted right in center stage..

You have to concede, I believe dan3843, trying a case here, in our own private kangaroo court is a lot more fun than in some stuffy court room with over the top lawyers and a pompous judge arbitrarily ruling on issues.

As you noted, it is cheaper.
