Have any of you people every read the Bible. You people that chastising this poor teacher. Innocent until proven guilty. Back to the Bible, if any of have read the Bible and know some of the contents, look up John (found in New Testment between Luke and Acts) chapter 8 which talks about the Scribes and Pharisees accuse a woman of adultery, especally verse 7 (When they kept questioning him, he (Jesus) straighted up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her"). There is alot of stones being cast and alot of you probably have no idea what you are talking about. I have known this teacher and her family and her husbands family for many years, this very unlike her to do something like this. So, enough bashing wait until the real truth comes out before burying ths poor teacher. Sometimes good people make bad choices, but that does not make her a bad person.

Honestly, I totally agree that teachers should not be texting or FB with students there are so many things that could be taken the wrong way and cause problems. I also didnít realize that this was being send at a late hour, didnít have that fact. Something along the same lines happened where I work and it was a set up. The end result was not a good one. Youíre also right that the Sheriff have people trained in this and it will be very clear in the end. Itís just a shame it happened and there are young people involved.

Well, ok what about this thirtysomething woman that has lived her teen years and had a normal school life..... how about this 16 year old boy who was trying to have a normal highschool life but to have some "poor teacher" prey upon him? WHAT ABOUT THE BOY???? Seems everyone is concerned with the mother of the boy and her background or the teacher and her backgroud, how about the boy and his future and how this will effect him????? How did we lose sight of that?

Yes, I agree. We do not know what this young man may be going through right now, but still all the facts are not in yet. How do we really know everything is true, how much is being made up or overblown. Why don't we all wait and see what the final verdict is before jumping to conclusions.

Let the truth come out

When the truth comes out alot of people will have shoved their feet in their mouths, so to speak. I have seen the bad mouthing of the teacher, mother and student, and have seen first hand the amount of support that each has.. Wish this could have been taken care out of the public's eyes to aviod all of the hurtful things each has to hear and read about theirselfs, rather it's true or not. The truth does hurt but so do the lies. i do think it's odd and sad to see people jumping for the set up idea, who could set up text from the teacher who has access to her phone at 2 am( while should be at home) and then at 1pm ( while was at school/ work).... this matter should be left up to those involved and the justice system.

Yes, the accusation has been made. Before you go pointing fingers, wait for all of the facts to be presented. Give the teacher the benefit, until, if ever it reaches a point where it isn't deserved. More importantly her family, including her husband, her kids, her parents and brother and sister do not deserve this.
With that said, obviously there are some facts that warrant a closer look. Give the student a break. It has been stated that this has been brought to light before. If it did happen, why should he or his family be slandered? Honestly, I know him, his father and have heard of the mom. Yes, there are some things that I know of her that irritate me. Yes, she has hurt people that I care about. This I can say, because I know the facts. However, I would not wish this on any parent. Perhaps this experience will change the way that she approaches life. He and his family do not deserve to be publicly scrutinized for something is not pertinent facts in this. This is about inappropriate text messages between a teacher and a student. Nothing more. He is a good kid, with a great personality and has a bright future.
Throwing either of them under the bus at this point when no legal facts have been presented is absolutely insane and shows the narrow minded mentality that is prevalent in our society. Naming them on a public board, I find completely unacceptable and think that whoever did that, should have karma bite them on the hind end at some point to see what it is like.
This small-town mentality of jumping to conclusions and making accusations based on hearsay or gossip is why people refer to us as Morrow-Tucky and think we are full of white trash. The door is being left wide open for the entire country to see that. If you are going to take the time to post, take the time to utilize your spell check as well. At least make yourself somewhat credible. Maybe by the time that you utilize spell check, if you have any common sense at all, youíll decide that it might be best if left unsaid.
Brilliant! You are exactly correct. This should not be gossip fodder. No throwing of anyone under the bus just yet. Let he without sin cast the first stone, as they say? Well...if you can't say something nice shut the hell up already. Peoples lives are hanging in the balance and a community is rocked over this. Cardington is a small town and yes there are a lot of narrow minded people around but its like that wherever you go.
Everything will come out in the end but in the meantime, both families need support as it is just more than just the teacher and the student's lives that are affected. Their parents, children, spouses,etc are all suffering too. Get a grip people. Move on...

I heard that he had to leave early yesterday from school, that all of this is really getting to him and I think now that we have all put our nose's where they dont belong we should stop posting crap on here as I am sure he reads this and having to read what people are saying about his mother has to be very hard on him also. So this will be my last post on the subject. I hope the rest of you will also stop posting and let this boy hold his head up and not feel down on himself. Our opinions dont matter but the future of this child does!

I agree, we should stop the posting and let things calm down a bit. Both families involved need to be prayed for and what ever happens, happens.

In the 1st place a TEACHER should not have a STUDENTS cell phone number. A TEACHER should not be texting STUDENTS. There is no reason for this to happen. I know both parties.... And I know that this TEACHER has been warned by the Students mother If I was that mother I would of took it to the School then. and not warn the teacher. I know that this is not the first CHILD she has done this too, and a student tried to tell another so called person of position at the school and they did nothing, they advised the student that they should not say anything. That is a load of crap. If this would of came out a year or 2 ago then the Teacher would not of been able to do it to another STUDENT. There is no reason for anyone to blame the student or HIS MOTHER SHE DID THE RIGHT THING!!!!!!!!!! Trust me if I was in her shoes I would not of been so nice. I would of probably kicked the teachers ass!!!!!! Bottom line, is that NO TEACHER SHOULD HAVE A STUDENTS CELL NUMBER!!!!!!!! for any reason if they need to get a hold of the student then they need to contact the parent. People need to get their heads out of the ASSES and stop blameing this CHILD he is not a bad kid. And for all of you that don't believe this is true when the TRUTH comes out I hope you enjoy the KARMA that is going to come about.

lol..see it's people like you that I feel sorry for because you too will be the ones that are hurt in this situation. so many people trusted and believed her. I am close to both parties and unfortunately I have seen the evidence. It's in the laws hands now and she can't take it back. Months of texting at odd hours of the night, seriously 2 am text messages to a student, what is that important??? Majority came from her and he replied...very wrong regardless!!
I know the mother of the boy and she has been a mess since this has happened. She didn't take it this far, the school had evidence and took it to the police. that right there should tell you something! But you're right, the truth will come out, for me it already has, so unfortunately for me and from what I have seen, she is guilty until proven innocent. He was a minor REGARDLESS!
So sad for both families.
I guess if you've seen the "evidence" it must not be nearly as explicitas many are saying or she would be in jail, not sitting at home on administrative leave.

I know both parties. I do not believe the student - have known him most of his life and he lies all the time. His mom is a pshycho drug addict who freaks out oh the family all the time. The student flirts with every woman he sees, including teachers and also uses drugs and alcohol. Why feel sorry for the student he doesnt feel bad. He wanted this kind of attention from her or he would not have been writing I love you on her board.

How terrible for this young man and his family, he in fact is the true victim in this entire scandal. This situation was not brought to light to be vindictive or malicious but from a mother who loves and cares deeply about her sons well being and for that matter, other students who are or may have been affected in the present or past. I do know the family involved, not the mother very well, however, shame on those whom have come on here and said the horrible things that you did, I will give you, she is feisty, maybe had some situations in which she did not make wise judgment, but never in a million years would she abuse her child nor is she some kind of drug addict how sad for small town gossip to be so spun into such a woven web of lies.
I will say on behalf of this teacher, both of my children had her in school, I suppose my son would fall under the category of popular good looking jock type and never did she act in an inappropriate manner with him, nor was she ever disrespectful to my daughter. I know only what exists in this case via the phone, what was said and sent due to knowing someone who is a family member. I am not out to be the judge and jury, what punishment fits the crime, i know there are very very strict laws about information and images being sent via media, even in cases in which it is 2 minors and it occurs or between 2 consenting adults, if there is a lesson to be learned or share with your family and friends take a look at the Ohio revised code and or your own states laws regarding this, you just might be shocked at what you find. I have always liked and admired this teacher, think she is a good and caring person whom made some very serious mistakes and hope that she is given the opportunity to receive help that she obviously needs to fix what is broken in her life to steer her in a direction that she would do something such as this and may Gob bless all families on both sides, especially the young man who is a very caring and nice young man with a bright future ahead of him.
I will end with one other piece, not to create gossip nor stir a pot that does not need stirred but out of concern for students still attending this school and for their parents..Don't be blind to think just because one object is tarnished and getting all of the attention that there are not other objects hiding out of plain view that don;t need just as much if not more attention than this object in focus at the moment, there are several (at least 4) other objects that should be looked at very closely and I would hope in fairness to the one being judged at the moment, other students current day or in the past would bring forward the actions of the others who in fact are still existing within the system and please do not feel humiliated nor belittled but know that what happened in your cases was not right either and you to were victims just as this young man has been.

I graduated from small town usa many years ago. There were not cell phones or texting but there were teachers having sex with students. This is nothing new. The problem now with technology it can all be traced. The pictures she has sent to some of these students are out there. I am sure they are already in the hands of the morrow county sheriffs department but nothing can be totally revealed until it has been investigated thoroughly. I have neices and nephews that attend Cardington-Lincoln Schools and I do know these allegations to be true but I will leave it up to the authorities to prove these naysayers wrong. I am sure most of you realize the rampant depression, mental illness, adultery, and all the craziness going on everywhere in this world. This gal obviously has issues that should have been dealt with differently. Being a pedophile only ends in disaster to oneself, ones family, ones children, the community, the school system, and most of all the victims.

The mother did take the boys phone due to grades, and that is how this all came to light. The teacher in question thought she was texting the son when in fact she was texting the mother. Is the mother crazy? For what this time? Being a mother and taking proof in hand to the appropriate individuals? As a mother to a son, and as the mother to the girlfriend for the last two years, of this boy, I say thank you. None of us "know" anything for sure, and none of us "know" the true character of anyone. But, no matter what, that "boy" is just that, and the teacher is a grown woman in a position of authority who overstepped her bounds. And yes, she was warned a year ago, these are facts. I do hurt for both sides, because families are involved.

Is anyone else SHOCKED by the fact that some of these posts are saying that other teachers at the school may be guilty of the same thing?
not shocked - there are teachers at cardington who have younger siblings who attend the school and the students party at the teachers house, teachers who dated students, but they were "good people" so its ok, teachers who have been fired from other districts for pretty much the same things, but cardington will take anyone. cardington doesnt care, they know there are issues with athelets & drugs - they dont care!! its the name game in c-town

Lies: First off, there had to have been enough of some type of evidence for the issue to be sent on to the sheriff's department. Perhaps it was sent on just so, if indeed the teacher is innocent, her name has been properly cleared. We don't know for sure. Which is why we are advocating for slanderous posts supporting both sides be stopped. People and families are being hurt. Secondly, the mom and her past have nothing to do with this issue. The issue is on the texting/sexting. Finally, all kids have crushes. I think that there are plenty of high school boys and girls who would think that they were "special" if a high school teacher showed interest in them. There are so many emotions and changes taking place during those years, personalities forming and wanting acceptance that I don't think it is that outrageous if a student thought that they loved a teacher. Sorry that I can't agreee with you on that one. Without knowing the facts, I think that you can support your side proactively without slandering the other.

Lies,
If you are going to attempt to shame others, perhaps you should post your real name. Maybe some of us can share some skeletons that might be lurking in your closet. For me, as well as others, you just lost all crediblity in your original post. I know see your responses as an attempt to stir the pot. Congratulations- you look like a fool.
