She was supposed to teach him about math, but police say a teacher's relationship with one of her students didn't add up.

Now she's resigned from her job at the Deming School in Robertson county and is under investigation.

Former students of the accused teacher say, the alleged inappropriate relationship had been going on for at least a year, and some concerned parents in the school district say action should have been taken long ago.

The superintendent of Robertson County says another school board member brought a situation to his attention back in September; that the eighth grade teacher had been sending text messages to one of her students a total of more than 3000 texts.

Superintendent Chuck Brown says he confronted the teacher then suspended her thinking that would be the end of it.

Meanwhile, students say rumors of a relationship between the teacher and an eighth grader were circulating. This Sunday Kentucky State Police began an investigation into the alleged inappropriate contact. Soon after the teacher quit her job at the school.

Now that the word has spread in Robertson County many family members of students are worried.
KSP is investigating, but no charges have been filed against the former teacher therefore we have decided not to reveal her name at this time.

    I think it is awful that the school officials did not do their job and they let this continue. If the parents had not gotten involved, how far would it have went. I think we need to clean house with administration. Sweep them out the door and not under the rug. You can't tell me that the school officials did not know anything about this when it has been all over the county for several months. Somebody needs to get their story straight.

    Maybe this is why most of her students had low math scores.

    The following statement that Chuck Brown made is not correct, and he made this statment knowing it wasn't the truth."The superintendent of Robertson County says "another school board member brought a situation to his attention back in September; that the eighth grade teacher had been sending text messages to one of her students a total of more than 3000 texts".Inappropriate text messaging was brought to the Principal's attention, Jeremy McCloud, the last week in May by the parents. Jeremy reported to the parents that he had turned the information over to Chuck Brown. The parents waited the whole Summer for something to be done, and a repsonse back from the school. No one ever called.One parent had also spoken with chuck Brown before the board memebr, and the parent was told it would be taken care of. Guess what? It wasn't, another example of Deming School Officials sweeping problems under the rug and hoping they will go away.

    If this was a man teacher, he would already be tried, convicted, and in jail before he even saw a day in court. What is it with these irresponsible women teachers that so many of them are willing to do something they know they will eventually be caught doing? If school can't be a safe place for our kids then NO PLACE is safe for our kids.
