PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — A fifth-grade teacher in southwest Florida has been fired after parents and school administrators were anonymously sent images of her engaged in sex acts and apparently smoking marijuana.
The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported Thursday that the county school district terminated the 35-year-old woman, who had taught at an elementary school in Port Charlotte since 2002.
School officials said that in June they were mailed four photographs and a thumb drive containing five videos of the teacher in "various compromising acts." The district said she obviously knew she was being filmed. In July an unknown number of similar packets were sent to other teachers and parents.
The district's security chief wrote in a report that someone was obviously motivated to cause her personal and professional harm. No criminal charges are expected.
