It simply amazes me, when will teachers who do this ever get the hint. This kind of behavior is illegal and inappropriate for their job. It just gets them fired and in jail usually. This woman should not have any trouble finding a partner, she should have just went to a nightclub or something.

Now THIS is what I call inappropriate. It sounds like the system has good reason to fire her. But TPB need to find out if she really is guilty first.

Ron if you don't know anything about this case or the person who life is being ruined, then you should keep your comments to yourself! She is being accused by a delinquent who's parents have failed him. I can't wait till his record comes out and the truth is known! He will learn the hard way that you can't go around making up lies and get away with it! And shame on you for the comments you made!

First of all I would like to say that I am a graduate from Brunswick class of 2008. Right now I am a little sad to admit that. I attended Edwards’s middle school and actually had Kelly as a history teacher. I can tell you they have nothing on her this whole situation was from a rumor from a child living in a fantasy world! Its funny this article mentions nothing about this child’s background or the trouble he has been in and caused before. In America it’s suppose innocent until proven guilty there has been nothing proven because it is a bunch of bull!!! This teacher made me want to learn and didn’t just throw notes up on a over head she was passionate about what she did for a living and only wanted to help people. She strived to be the best she could be as a teacher and a coach for the dance team. Her children are her world and it is ridiculous that they are even brought up in this article because she loves them and would do anything for them. This is what is truly sickening to the stomach Mr. Mayell. Brunswick has thrown her under the bus and has done nothing to help her. After all she has done in her 12 years of education. As an alum I know for fact there was two other events that have taken place over the past 3 years at the high school that have not been handled in the same manner, DOES RESIGN RING A BELL MR MAYELL?

Ron,
Are you kidding me? you know nothing about this teacher and its funny just because you read an article about her that has no truth to it you think you can judge? wow how about you think about if it was you or one of your family memebersand see how it would feel to have an absolute stranger judging you when your life has been ruined. its funny that every article fails to mention all the great things she has done for the school system!

I actually don't think Mike Mayell should be running the school district. From what I know I can tell you he going to bring Brunswick down. As for the kids and the parents accusing the teacher KARMA. I can't believe you can put someone's life on the line like this. Kelly I support you and your family I believe you helping these children is a honor in your eyes. Please kids and stripper mom step up to the plate, think of what yur doing to that family.

It's really appalling the title of this article. Who said she had sex with them? She was my sons teacher and she was the best. She made the students want to learn and be taught. I can't begin to tell you all what a fabulous person she is. There are a lot of rumors going around EMS that these boys are telling lies just to get her into trouble. They are trouble makers and just want the attention. It's really sad what kids will do now a days just to get someone to pay attention to them. And as for her children, the Family Services investigated that suppose incident and found nothing wrong.
Mr. Mayell, I am sorry to say that you are my childrens superintendent. I really hope you wise up before it's too late for our community.
Mrs. Covic, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Keep your head up, don't let hate mongers get you down.

FOX, think your article needs a whole lot of clarification....I think your investigative reporter needs to do a little research on the boy doing the accusing..and his family .think you will find that more entertaining!!

Those charges are so far out to lunch it's not even funny. The kid who makes the claim is the biggest delinquent in the school, his mother is a stripper and his brother just got out of jail.
Ms. Covic's kids are some of the happiest children I know, she's been a stellar teacher and Brunswick and that idiot...what's his name Mayhem? Doesn't deserve a teacher of that cailiber.

You truly have no idea whom you are talking about. This woman would never do anything like this.The kid is a deliquent from a disfunctional family, ruining a family that is a wonderful family. You really need to get your story straight before you open your mouth.

Maybe these stories should not be allowed to be aired by the media until AFTER a jury has convicted the person? If the situation were that serious the school district is a total failure for letting an entire school year go by before handling the situation. Seems like someone doesn't know how to manage a school system.

If the woman is guilty then the story will still be there when that is proven.

There was enough evidence she committed a crime to persuade a grand jury to indict her. Her indictment is public information and should be part of the news.

My questions to all the defenders of this women is how is it a grand jury saw enough evidence they were willing to indict her if the charges are merely a fantasy of a vindictive delinquent and his stripper mom? What information do you have that the grand jury didn't have?

Every time it's a female teacher accused the response is support for the accused. If it's a male teacher, the response is, "castrate him!" Case in point, the dude recently accused by a student 8 years later.

On a lighter note, even though her mugshot's not all that great, I see potential. I'd do her.

Why would they let an accused teacher teach all year? The article says she was briught to the superintendents attention last August, and this all happens now at the end of the school year? Something just doesn't sound right about this whole story.

Hope its not true, and if proven so, the accussers should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. How like the media to glorify a stripper over an established educator.

She was not teaching. She was assigned to home. It took 10 months to investigate the allegations and charge her. The district is now in the process of terminating her. They didn't terminate her due to not being charged with a crime, as of this school year.

WOW. I agree with A Brunswick Alum, we dont know everything. Remember there are always 3 sides to every story. If this was true and it were my son I would be unbelievably irate and press charges to the fullest. However, I have to admit that I wish all these great looking teachers were at my school 25 years ago.

i have to say that mrs. covic was my 8th grade math teacher in 2003, she was an amazing teacher. i went from supposedly needing a math tutor, to getting A's and B's by the end of my 8th grade year. i know that i loved her teaching and she always took the time to help when you needed it. i haven't seen her since but i have to say i can't believe she would change so much. she was my absolute favorite math teacher.
