A Calgary music teacher had frequent sexual encounters with a ninth-grade boy in her school band office and her vehicles, the former student testified at a hearing Tuesday in Edmonton.

The teacher smoked marijuana with the teen and his friends, bought him clothes, jewelry, a bong and other gifts, and regularly supplied him and a friend with alcohol and cigarettes, the former student, who is now an adult, testified Tuesday.

The then-14-year-old was drinking so much alcohol, he’d sometimes wake up shaking the next morning, he told an Alberta Teachers’ Association conduct committee hearing.

The student’s father, who also testified Tuesday, said his son’s relationship with the teacher had a “diabolical” effect on their lives, accelerating his addiction and mental health problems. He has been in and out of an addiction treatment program, and did not complete Grade 10.

The association has charged the teacher with five counts of unprofessional conduct, including having an inappropriate sexual relationship with the student, and using drugs.  (more...)
