[MSNBC]  A Modesto, Calif., teen student who made national news when she and her high school teacher moved in together said Saturday she broke off their relationship after he was arrested on a charge of earlier abusing another student. Jordan Powers, 18, told ABC News that when Christopher James Hooker, 41, called her from jail after his arrest Friday she told him, “We’re done.” During Saturday’s interview with ABC, Powers said she had “lost everything for this guy.” “I lost my senior year. I gave up all my friends at high school because they didn’t agree with me,” said the former Enochs High School student. Powers told ABC News that Hooker told her he met the other student, who was 17 in 1998, online. “He hung out with her just as friends and then he went to her house and she came out of the bathroom naked and he only touched her boobs and her legs,” Powers said. “He was freaked out so he left and went home. He said nothing else happened, but all of that was a lie.” The teen said she believed the woman came forward now to help her see the truth about Hooker and rescue her from the relationship. “My heart dropped. I felt betrayed. I just have a gut feeling there are other girls,” Powers said, according to the ABC News interview. Powers and Hooker moved in together in February, with Powers dropping out of school and Hooker quitting his teaching job there and leaving his wife and three children. The two appeared on national talk shows and in interviews, and maintained they didn’t have a sexual relationship until she turned 18. But police are still investigating whether there was inappropriate contact before that.

So I guess this means the statute of limitations is bullshit?  Courtroom drama TV propaganda?  Anyway, I don’t blame this chick for bailing one bit.  Jordan’s the 18 year-old dingbat in this situation.  So calling her an idiot or hypocrite is par for the course.  The real dummy is Mr. Hooker.  Lesson for all you dudes out there who think you’re some sort of hero for being open & honest with your girlfriends – don’t do it.   (more…)


[Orlando Sentinel]  A Eustis Middle School teacher resigned after she made a comment about a student’s cleavage in front of the classroom. Joan Bannister, a 53-year-old math teacher, drew attention to the girl’s cleavage and said she would be out of dress code if the girl were measured, according to a memo from Lake County Schools. The girl filed a complaint saying that on Jan. 30 Bannister approached her with a ruler and said the math teacher wanted to measure her exposed “boobage.” In the memo, Bannister denied ever using the word “boobage” but admitted to having a conversation with the girl about her being out of compliance with the dress code. She said she never touched the girl, but “could have handled the situation better,” according to the memo. The district recommended her a five-day unpaid suspension that she never served because she requested a hearing. Bannister resigned in lieu of the hearing, which was scheduled for Monday. District spokesman Chris Patton said the district will be forwarding the complaint to the state Office of Professional Practices that oversees teacher discipline. According to the state’s educator code of ethics, Bannister should not have intentionally exposed any student to embarrassment or disparagement. “I think it’s an unfortunate incident, and I hope the investigation brings it to a close,” Patton said.

Kudos to Joan Bannister.  I don’t know how teachers do it nowadays.  Chicks 16 going on 26 cramming their boobage in your face regardless of the dress code is tough to handle on a daily basis.  She simply got up close & personal with her ruler to measure a pair of cans under the intent of rules enforcement – but something changed.  That tingly feeling in your granny panties isn’t anything to be ashamed of, Joan.   (more…)

[Daily Mail]  Furious parents have pulled their children out of an Italian nursery school after it emerged that one of the teachers posed for glamour calendars as part of her extra curricular activities. Brunette Michela Roth, 38, sparked fury among mothers at the school but – unsurprisingly – not fathers, after news leaked out that she had posed in sexy see through underwear. American born Miss Roth, who has lived in Italy for more than ten years, has also won several beauty contests including ‘Miss Mamma Italiana’ and ‘Miss Cultetto D’Oro’ (Miss Golden Bottom) and has been the talks of TV chat shows and newspapers since the story broke. Miss Roth, is a teacher at Castello di Serravalle near Bologna and today was not at all fazed at the fact parents has pulled their children out of the nursery. She said: ‘For me being a model is my second job. I do shoots when school is over and especially in the holidays when I am back in the United States. I am always dressed in the pictures and never naked. ‘Maybe I could have been a model but I just love being a teacher. I think there is a little bit of envy going on here and it has gone over the top – there are also mums who tell me that their children can’t wait to see me in the morning.’ Miss Roth found herself in the spotlight after posing for a Harley Davidson calendar and after news leaked out furious parents began pulling their children out of the school with one telling the local newspaper: ‘She is too attractive and I don’t want her teaching my son.’

I was always under the impression shit like this only went down in America.  Figured Europe & their thongs and Speedos were cool with a little see-through lingerie along with their hairy chick pits, jungle bushes, etc.  Guess not.  Apparently overweight, ugly mothers all over the world can’t handle dropping Timmy off at school and being reminded Monday through Friday how hideous they are.  I don’t blame them.  Just cut the crap & quit using your son as an excuse, you pig.   (more…)

[WTSP]  The Polk County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Lakeland teacher for battery after she allegedly threw food at a McDonald’s employee. According to investigators, 39-year-old Simone Paolercio was in the drive-thru of a McDonald’s on South Florida Avenue Saturday morning when she got into a dispute with the window attendant over her order. They say Paolercio demanded a refund. When the manager refused, she allegedly threw the food through the window, striking the attendant in the face and chest. Paolercio fled the restaurant in her car. The incident was captured on store video surveillance. Paolercio was located by deputies at her home, arrested without incident, and booked into the Polk County Jail on a battery charge. She told deputies she is currently a teacher at Lakeland Highlands Middle School.

Battery?  Dude, you got hit in the chest with a flattened tater tot.  If there’s any crime committed it’s that you didn’t give her a refund.  I’ve never worked fast food and, quite frankly, if I ever had to I would kill myself – but I can understand how the manager could say, “Come on, lady…you’re a teacher, you understand thankless jobs.  I shouldn’t have to dodge hash browns too.”  The flip side to that, though, is this guy could’ve avoided the situation entirely.   (more…)

[TribLocal]  A Rolling Meadows High School teacher resigned last week after spraying a student in the face with Lysol. The 47-year-old science and math teacher resigned last Thursday, after admitting that she sprayed two students with Lysol when they refused to keep their safety goggles during a science lab, according to police reports. One student was transported to Northwest Community Hospital after the incident. According to a police report, which provided a narrative of what allegedly happened, during a science lab Nov. 30, the teacher walked around the classroom and told students at least twice to put on their safety goggles. According to witnesses, she said if they did not put their safety goggles on, she would spray them with a 32-oz. bottle of Lysol she was carrying. When some of the students still did not have their goggles on, she sprayed one student, who turned away and was sprayed in the back of the head. She then sprayed another student, who was holding his goggles, and the Lysol got into his eyes, causing him to scream and drop a beaker he was holding. When his eyes were still burning, he was sent to the nurse’s office. The nurse requested paramedics take the student to Northwest Community Hospital, where he was treated and released.

Straight up, old fashioned battle of wills here.  In one corner you have the under-appreciated, underpaid & un-respected teacher.  A seasoned veteran of the classroom who’s undoubtedly been witness to the steady decline in children’s respect for authority.  On the other hand, you have today’s child.   (more…)

[MyFoxBoston]  Kevin Hogan is an English teacher and crew coach at a top-rated Massachusetts public high school, but he brings some unusual experience to the job: until recently, he was starring in pornographic movies. Hogan has worked at the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School in Malden since September. In addition to his coaching and teaching duties, he also chairs the high school’s English department. But he can also be found on the Internet and in adult entertainment stores under his screen name: Hytch Cawke. His movie credits include “Fetish World” and “Just Gone Gay 8,” and FOX Undercover found his third movie, whose title is not fit to reveal in a family news outlet, in a local adult store. It features him answering an ad to have sex for money. Now Hogan will have to answer to his school, which placed him on paid leave while they conduct their own investigation. It’s not the kind of news the school is used to. Just this year, Newsweek magazine named Mystic Valley one of the best high schools in the country and fourth best public high school in Massachusetts.

First of all, “Hytch Cawke” is a pretty solid porn name considering how many others have already been taken.  Anyway, it’s pretty crazy to see people up in arms over shit like this.  I mean would Mystic Valley Regional Charter School rank any higher if Kevin Hogan wasn’t getting his starfish smashed in Fetish World?  A gay porn star can’t also master English and crew?  Christ, crew might be gayer than a feature role in the Just Gone Gay series.   (more…)

[RecordNet]  A Lincoln Unified School District teacher has been placed on paid leave amid allegations she was operating pornographic websites on a school computer with a Stockton police officer as her partner. District officials confiscated the school-issued Apple laptop of Heidi Kaeslin, a special-education teacher at Lincoln High, about one month ago. Kaeslin, 35, has been replaced by a long-term substitute teacher. Lincoln Unified has hired a computer expert to perform a forensic study of the laptop. A written report is expected this week, said attorney Chet Quaide, who is representing Lincoln Unified. Based on the report, Uslan will recommend to the Lincoln Unified board whether action – including possibly firing Kaeslin – is warranted. Action could come as soon as December’s board meeting. The investigation centers around allegations Kaeslin and Richard Fields, 51, an officer assigned by the Stockton Police Department to Lincoln High, were using the computer to support several for-profit websites, most of them adult. Fields retired from the police force in May. The sites include,, and

Heidi, why the fuck are you taking all your sites down?!!?  This is the pub you needed for your porn career to skyrocket!  Now’s the time to capitalize.  I mean why start operating in the first place if you’re just gonna fold in the face of free nationwide advertising?  The idea is genius, really.  (more…)
