Wow, thanks Nicole for your reliable accusations. I also heard she was a cross dressing sheep farmer from New York. See how easy it is to open your mouth and spew s***?
A CROSS-DRESSING SHEEP FARMER FROM NEW YORK??? WOW, how'd she ever find the time for getting into THIS situation on top of teaching yet?

I have to say that I agree with a lot of what is being said.

Yes, there can absolutely be a double standard. But, I do also believe the this boy is bragging to his how he "did" his teacher.

All of this probably came out into the open because she either pissed him off OR his parents found out. My guess would be his parents found out.

This does leave you with that "I need to take a shower" feeling. For the love of Pete...he was 16 when you started this. YUCK. That would be like dating one of my kids friends.

How much could you really have in common with a 17 year old kid. I have been married to someone younger. Why in the hell do you think I am divorced and went older the second time around!!

Actually, age of consent is 16 in Kansas. So, unless this started when he was actually 15, I am not 100% sure that there is much they can do. Fire her would probably be a good thing. Not allow her to teach again.

I guess we will have to see what they find and what the laws can and will do about it.

I just found the age of consent in Kansas is indeed 16, but there is an age gap provision and possibly a dependence, teacher/student, provision that she could be charged on. In other words the judge can do what ever he feels like at the time. He could also charge her under contempt of court for just about anything he wants and jail her for years without a trial or a lawyer. This justice system is nothing but a joke. If this was an older man with a young girl he would be locked up already like the Mohlers that haven't even been to trial.

The age of consent in Kansas is 16 years old. I'm not sure she has broken any laws unless there are specific laws relating to teachers and students, I doubt it. We need to address bigger issues such as crooked judges and politicians and let this stupid matter alone.
She was charged with unlawful sexual acts. So yes it illegal for teachers and students to have sex.
She was still his teacher and whether he liked it or not, started the relationship or went along with it she had no right.

This is from the Leavenworth Paper:
The boy identified as the victim was of the legal age of consent for Kansas. But teachers are still prohibited by law from having sexual relations with students at their schools.

the kid wanted it and probably still does. It is a two way street and our crooked legal system needs to understand that. Heck if I could have earned extra credit that way I may have too!!!!!

Shannon taught at the high school I graduated from before she taught in Leavenworth. She was sleeping with several students there as well, I suspect that is why she was "let go" although the school district of course did not portray it that way. I had Shannon as a teacher and thought she was an excellent teacher, but now as I am older I am appauled by her actions. While I agree that there are worse crimes in the world that doesnt take away the severe effects that her actions have on not only the students she has taken advantage of, but the many students and athletes that looked up to her as well. It is certainly not easy to become a teacher, which I believe is a job that is greatly under-appreciated, which makes me wonder why in the world she chose this profession. A teacher should be teaching his/her students decency and to place value on themselves. When a teacher takes advantage of a student like this it ruins both of those ideas. When the victim is a young male many poeple may say that "he was probably more than willing and bragging about it afterward" but there is still a great amount of damage done to a male victim that is not spoken of or even realized until much later. I pray that all of her victims are given the strength to learn the attrocity of this crime.
I completely back everything in this. I also was a student of hers and knew of many other happenings before this one with numerous friends of mine. She deserves to be caught and punished.

... shannon hermreck... taught at mill valley before going to a different dist. There were many rumors that went around about her and how she was messing around with other students. Now shes been charged, great! She wanted to be everyones friend before being a teacher, honestly I am suprised that it has taken this long for some legal action to take place.

This woman is very sick. She has been doing this for years!! I personally saw inappropriate behavior from her 10 years ago before she left our town and she was married at the time. Good example for young students. She has been through lots of teaching positions and I am pretty sure that you could find boys at every location. She has never been made accountable for her actions -- she just leaves and goes somewhere else. She is very manipulative and controling over her students. There are so many stories about her they could write a book ! She should never be allowed to teacher or coach again.
The problem is that the judge will not hear about all the previous inappropriate behavior and they will treat this as a single one time bad decision. If someone had stopped her sooner maybe this would not have happened.

So I guess this was Shannon Hermrick(sp?), if so she had done the same thing in Oklahoma when she taught there. Sad thing is as good looking as she was she could've had many of MEN. Was the young man an african american? That was her preferance earlier.
