Luckily this student told this counselor, for now the rumors will stop. But did the student say this to boost his ego with his classmates or to bash this teacher's good name for whatever reason. Hopefully, his pals will see this for what it is..slander and not to look upon this teacher with disgust. Afterall, this is her career, her chosen profession. There are too many female teachers who do this on a regular basis, because they think they can....AND they do get caught. Maybe after this student is charged, he'll think twice about spreading lies. I hear detention...
