THOMSON -- A Thomson High School teacher is on leave from the school system and the GBI confirms it is investigating allegations of inappropriate relationships.

Pat Morgan, special agent in charge of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation regional office, said agents were called in by the McDuffie County Board of Education Public Safety Department earlier this week after that agency received information about a teacher having inappropriate contact.

Morgan said no arrest has been made, but the case is in its early stages. He said agents are looking into all aspects of the situation to determine if current students might be involved or if relationships with some recent graduates were going on before the students finished school. “At this point, nothing is off limits,” Morgan said.

Superintendent Jim Lebrun confirmed that an employee with the system was placed on leave of absence Thursday for possible ethical and criminal violations.

On Friday the school system Web site had a new job listing posted for a math teacher at Thomson High.

"A Teacher"

I know nothing about this case, but has there ever been one high school where there wasn’t at least one woman teacher who “liked” boys? Interestingly, some of those teachers are still teaching, some with links to well-known people. (To my favorite tipster, thought I had forgotten, didn’t ya.) Some of the boys are now influential people and none of them are saying a thing. There's a movie that came out last week, "A Teacher" that deals with the subject.

Did it occur to you it may be

Did it occur to you it may be a man who liked "girls"? In fact the last several high profile cases one in Thomson and one in Harlem have been male teachers.

Or it could be

a male teacher liking boys or a woman teacher liking girls, in which case they will receive medals from our local gay pride organizations instead of punishment in these politically correct days.

I was in love with several of my Jr. and High School teachers!

I would have never said a word. LOL! :) Heck, I guess all of us young guys had a crush on at least one female teacher. :)

Girls and boys are different

I never saw one teacher that interested me in that way! I know my coaches did wrong with some of our girls - hope it's still eating them alive for what they did 40 years ago. Sweet Son - did you lose your mama to cancer?
