THOSE PROFESSIONAL LOONS TEACHERS

Filed at 10:56 am under by dcobranchi

This is one person who should not be allowed anywhere near a classroom.

A married Ponderosa High School teacher is facing felony sex assault charges, accused of engaging in an ongoing affair with a troubled sophomore whom she says she wanted to help.

Nicole Barnhart, 35, has admitted to having sexual relations with the boy – one of her students – twice, according to an arrest warrant affidavit filed in Douglas County District Court.

…Court records show that Barnhart, who has worked in education for about 12 years, completed a deferred sentence in a child-neglect case last month.

The sentence stemmed from an incident last July.

Investigators say the mother left her 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son alone in her car at Park Meadows mall while she went inside to buy a shirt.

It was about 90 degrees that day, according to an investigator’s report. The car was turned off and the windows were rolled up.

…Court records indicate that Barnhart was removed from her position as cheerleading coach because of concerns expressed by parents.

School officials told investigators she was counseled last year for inviting cheerleaders to her home and playing Truth or Dare with them, the affidavit says.

Strike three!

A question– she’s admitted to the affair and yet she’s still being paid. Just what does it take for a teacher to actually, you know, get fired?

Any time I start to doubt our decision to homeschool,things like this remind me of what my kids might be exposed to in a government school.
