SILOAM SPRINGS, AR – We’ve been reporting on teachers sleeping with students for almost ten years, but I swear it seems as if it’s becoming more common. So much so that I now have to choose which teacher story I want to write up.
Today I chose not to go with the Oklahoma teacher who followed a student 650 miles to have sex, and decided on 32-year-old Mary Faith McCormick. She’s the married teacher who just got busted having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old student.
According to the affidavit, the sexual relationship between the two began after a friend of the 13-year-old dared him to contact McCormick. He did, and McCormick reciprocated.
The relationship eventually turned into a sexual one with the two having sex on at least two occasions between June and August. On one of these occasions, the boy and a friend went over to McCormick’s apartment to watch a movie where the 13-year-old had sex with McCormick in her bedroom.
The two were busted mainly because of their Snapchat activity.…
Matthew Burdette killed himself on November 29. His family had noticed the once happy, popular teen had become withdrawn in the days leading up to his suicide, but say they never saw it coming.
Matthew left a note that stated he had no friends and that he could no longer handle school. Wanting answers, his family started asking questions – starting with school officials at University City High School.
They say school officials wouldn’t tell them anything about what may have happened at the school to have caused Matthew to suddenly hate school so bad that it would be part of his reasoning for ending his own life.
However, other students didn’t have such issues. They told Matthew’s family that their son was being relentlessly bullied over a video that was posted online that went viral.…
SURPRISE, AZ – A 5-year-old boy has been accused of sexual misconduct after he pulled his pants down while on his school’s playground.
The boy’s mother says that back in April, her son was playing on the playground at Ashton Ranch Elementary School when another student told him if he didn’t pull his pants down he was going to do it for him.
So her son pulled down his pants and underwear in front of other students and teachers. The boy was taken to the principal’s office where he was given detention and was forced to sign a document that labeled his actions as “sexual misconduct.”
She said she’s tried to get the school to remove the label or amend the report, especially since the act was not sexual in nature and may have been the result of bullying. She also didn’t like that she was not present for the meeting in the principal’s office when her son was instructed to sign the document.
The school have declined to remove the sexual misconduct label, stating they followed proper procedures and protocols.…
PERRY HALL, MD — A father hit a teacher with a baseball bat after finding the teacher had engaged in some inappropriate texts with his teenage daughter.
Police were firsts contacted by the mother of a 15-year-old student at Perry Hall High School after she discovered a series of text messages between her daughter and a 42-year-old teacher at the school.
When police arrived and checked out the messages, they agreed that the texts seem to show an emotional relationship between the teen and the teacher that seemed inappropriate, but none of it constituted a crime.
Police would return to the home several hours later after receiving a disturbance report. The father of the teen said the teacher showed up at the family’s home wanting to talk. When the teacher refused to leave as he was instructed, the teen’s father hit the teacher with a baseball bat.

According to prosecutor Taylor Piscionere, the pair then had 20 to 30 more sexual encounters in and out of the school over the next six weeks, including inside the school’s basement and inside her car. This relationship continued for almost a year, ending only a couple of weeks ago after a jealous Morsi flipped out when she found out the teen, now 17, had gotten himself a date to the prom..

Brooklyn, NY – Two boys, ages 9 and 12, have been arrested after they allegedly put rat poison pellets in their teacher’s water bottle.
According to reports, the boys were at PS 315 in Flatbush on Monday when they decided to spice up one of their teacher’s water with some poison. The boys were busted after another student saw what they had done and reported it to their mother, who contacted the school.
School officials ended up calling police after rat poison pellets were found in one the boy’s backpacks. The teacher had already drank from the water bottle and ended up going to the doctor for some mild nausea. The fourth-grade teacher was treated and released.
Both boys are now facing charges of attempted assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon, said police. According to the police commissioner, the boys put a small amount of the poison in the teacher’s water because “the 9-year-old wanted to see what the reaction would be.”
“God knows where kids get these ideas,” he said.…

PLEASANT PRAIRIE, WI – Parents of a six-year-old girl have filed a restraining order against one of her five-year-old classmates after the boy allegedly told the girl he wanted to slit her throat and watch her bleed.
According to the girl’s father, Brian Metzger, that threat was just one of the many things the boy has reportedly done to bully his daughter while in school at Prairie Lane Elementary School.
“The whole year she’s been dealing with it. There have been other students in the classroom who have been dealing with the same individual,” Metzger said.
Metzger says his daughter has been kicked in the face, and had sand and rocks thrown at her on the playground. Metzger went to the school requesting the boy be removed from the classroom. When nothing changed and the bullying continued, Metzger took matters into his own hands.
He ended up filing a police report as well as filing a temporary restraining order against the five-year-old boy. Only then did the school remove the boy from the class.…
HANCOCK COUNTY, OH – A teacher only received a 10 day suspension after school surveillance cameras capture her assaulting a 6-year-old kindergartner, and the kid’s parents aren’t too happy about that.
The parents of Ian Nelson were outraged when they were provided surveillance footage that showed their son, Ian, as he is confronted by his teacher, Barb Williams, as he walks out of the school bathroom at Riverdale Local Schools.
Williams can be seen first grabbing Ian and pinning him against the wall before grabbing him by the face and then picking him up off the floor by his shirt. The video ends as she drags him by tharm into the bathroom.
There’s no information on exactly why Williams was so angry at the kid, but the school ended up suspending Williams for 10 days. As you can probably understand, Ian’s parents aren’t satisfied with that response – especially since there are only 10 days left in the school year.
Ian’s parents want Williams terminated and plan on taking the video to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office to try to file criminal charges against Williams.…
DEERFIELD BEACH, FL – If you’ve ever wondered what kind of face a Christian school teacher might make after getting caught with his dick in an underage schoolgirl’s mouth, look no further than to your left.
That’s the mugshot of Eric Beasley, the 24-year-old biology teacher at Zion Lutheran Church who got busted having sexual relations with one of his 14-year-old students.
He was caught after police noticed his parked car behind a business and found him and the ninth-grade student half-naked in his car. When questioned, they both admitted they’d just got finished performing oral sex on each other.
Beasley would go on to admit that his relationship with his student had turned sexual on Valentine’s Day and that the two would often make out at school during lunch breaks. Cops would later discover that Beasley had used his phone to send the girl pictures of his dick.

Edinburgh – On Tuesday, 12-year-old Keane Wallis-Bennett was killed when an internal wall inside the gym at Liberton High School collapsed on top of her.
Keane suffered major upper-body injuries when a wall next to the showers in the gym collapsed on top of her as she changed for PE. Witnesses stated she screamed that she could hear something falling, but she was unable to get out of the way.
Staff and emergency services were unable to save her and Keane was pronounced dead at the scene. Police and health and safety officials have began investigating the circumstances surrounding Keane’s death and how the wall, built as a partition, collapsed.
The school had been surveyed by Edinburgh City Council and found to need ‘significant’ work. The local authorities did not have the money needed to fix all the problems found with all of their schools at once, so they adopted a “prioritization” scheme. This led to Liberton High being placed behind other schools needing work.
The wall that collapsed was not identified as a problem when the school was surveyed, but students said the wall had been “wobbly” for months and that they’d warned teachers about it.…
Houston, TX – A Texas middle school teacher is facing sexual assault charges after she was accused of giving a 15-year-old student a blowjob in her classroom.
According to Harris County court documents, police began investigating 43-year-old Corrie Anne Long after a student at Hopper Middle School informed staff that they’d witnessed some odd behavior between Long and one of her math students. They said they witnessed the student smack the teacher on the ass, and had seen Long sitting on the boy’s lap.
When police talked to the student allegedly involved in an appropriate relationship with Long, he told them he had known long since sixth-grade, and that she performed oral sex on him in her classroom last November. After hugging the boy’s penis with her mouth, she told him not to tell anyone or she would lose her job.
Long, who’s been with the school district since 2002, was subsequently removed from her position at the school and is currently on administrative leave. She is not allowed back on campus pending the outcome of the police investigation.…
TACOMA, WA – A former sixth-grade teacher was sentenced to six months in jail for sexually abusing a 12-year-old student for over a year, but with four months already served, will spend the remaining two months at home.
Keshia Shaw was a math and science teacher at at Tacoma’s Gray Middle School when she first started molesting one of her students in 2007. The sexual abuse continued for over a year and a half, stopping only after the boy heard a sermon about molestation and finally told his mother what was happening.
Shaw would eventually plead guilty to two counts of second-degree child rape, in exchange for a six-month sentence. Judge McCarthy delivered the sentence on Tuesday, but was reluctant. He said he’d read through the court documents and didn’t like that Shaw kinda shifted some of the blame on the victim.
However, standing before the judge, Shaw took full responsibility for her actions and Judge McCarthy ended up crediting her for the four months she’s already served, and agreed to let her go home with a monitoring device to serve out the remaining two months.…
MULLICA TOWNSHIP, NJ — Residents of Mullica Township are rallying behind Kelly Mascio, a teacher for more than 15 years who was suspended after finding two students naked in her classroom bathroom and promptly reported it to a principal.
On Sept. 30, Mascio found two 5-year-olds — a boy and girl — inside her in-classroom bathroom together. Both were naked and told Mascio they were “having sex.” Mascio reported the incident to the principal, who then called police and the state Department of Youth and Family Services.
In response, Mascio was immediately suspended with pay even though police found no reason to pursue criminal charges against her and closed the case. Now Superintendent Brenda Harring-Marro has filed tenure charges against Mascio in an effort to have her fired permanently.
The Board of Education met Wednesday night to determine whether to certify the charges, but refused to inform the public — including about 200 people who came out to support Mascio — whether it had certified the complaint or not.
Mullica Township Education Association President Barbara Rheault said this was Mascio’s first year teaching kindergartners and that the day of the incident was a confusing one as children were moving in and out of Mascio’s classroom for MAPS benchmark testing.…

At around 7:30 a.m. Monday morning, Nett was in the school cafeteria when he drank a water bottle full of bleach before dousing himself with Coleman fuel and lighting himself up. “I could see the kid in the flames,” a student said. “He was standing and it was almost like he was dancing around in the fire.”
A quick-thinking cafeteria worker was able to retrieve a fire extinguisher that a custodian used to put out the flames. Nett was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, suffering from burns to 80 percent of his body. Aside from a teacher cutting their hand while getting the fire extinguisher out of its glass case, no one else was injured. Police say Nett never tried to harm other students.

The video’s description stated:
“I am 28 years old and have been waiting years to get up enough courage to report a teacher for sexually abusing me for years. When I finally got up enough courage to report her, I found out that the statute of limitations was up and she will never have to pay for the things that she did to me. I decided to call her and make a video to let the public know what kind of person is around their children. Her name is Andrea Cardosa and works with your children at Alhambra High School in Alhambra, Ca.”
In the video, Carrillo explains she was abused by Cardosa for years, starting when she was just 12-years-old and Cardosa was a basketball coach at her middle school in Moreno Valley.…
CARROLL COUNTY, GA – An 8-year-old girl with hair extensions had to be taken to the emergency room after bullies at her school pulled her hair so hard that they ripped her scalp.
Aolani Dunbar’s family said she wanted to brush her hair like other girls at school so she got hair extensions. When she showed up to school, other kids picked on her for two weeks and took turns trying to pull out the extensions. They pulled her hair so hard that they eventually ripped Aolani’s scalp.
“They kept pulling it and pulling it, especially on the playground,” said Aolani. “Everybody got a chance, and I was in the gazebo sitting there crying because I have no friends to play with that will protect me.”
Her grandmother discovered the injury after she returned home from school one day. “When I saw just the horror of it, I just started to cry,” said Dorris Bearden. “I cried as I un-braided her hair and the hair fell out in my hands.”
She was taken to the hospital to have her scalp repaired, where she had to have her hair shaved to avoid infection.…
