She wasn’t teaching anatomy.
A Florida high school teacher accused of sending inappropriate photos to students was officially fired by the school board, Action News Jax reported.
Meanwhile, the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office told The Huffington Post on Thursday that it was still investigating the allegations. “We have talked to numerous people,” a spokesman said.
Dionne Younce of Nease High School in Ponte Vedra had been suspended in January after accusations by students that they received inappropriate pictures from her via Snapchat, the outlet wrote. Officials confirmed her termination on Tuesday.
Among the claims, one student said they were “sending nude photos to each other.” Another “noticed a fellow football player got the same Snap which was Ms. Younce in a bra only,” Action News Jax reported.
The case, involving “multiple students,” was being handled by the Special Victims Unit of the Sheriff’s Office, the spokesman said to HuffPost.
Two assistant principals are witnesses in the report, he confirmed.
Younce was a physical education teacher who was also the girls’ weightlifting team coach, the St. Augustine Record wrote. She was in a probationary period of her employment.
