B.C. teacher loses her licence for sending barrage of inappropriate texts to boy while drunk

Unsend! Unsend! Unsend!
A B.C. high school teacher has lost her teaching licence for sending inappropriate text messages four years ago to a Grade 11 boy while intoxicated.

In a consent resolution agreement, the B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation states that in 2012, while working at the Rocky Mountain School District, Daphne Anne Neal failed to maintain appropriate professional boundaries with a student in her class.

On Dec. 14, 2012, Neal sent the student 50 text messages at night, in which she said she was attracted to the student and asked the student to keep the communication secret, according to the agreement.

Neal also wrote that she knew it was not right and that she could be fired for sending the messages. The agreement states that Neal admits that she was intoxicated when she sent many of the messages but acknowledges that does not excuse the behaviour.  (more...)
