In Florida, there have been a number of reported incidents of female teachers have sex with underaged male students. No matter your personal views of these incidents, they are still crimes that should be prosecuted. Teachers are put in a position of trust. Teachers are in place to educate our children – not to have sex with them. Reported and publicized Florida incidents include:
*32 year old teacher (Maria Guzman Hernandez) at Our Lady of Charity School in Hialeah, Florida, who had sexual intercourse with a 15 year old student;
*34 year old Jacksonville, Florida public high school teacher who had sexual intercourse with a 14 year old student;
*32 year old St. Petersburg, Florida teacher who sexted nude photographs of herself to an 8th grade student; and
*45 year old South Daytona, Florida teacher who had sexual intercourse with a student in Daytona Beach area hotels.
Florida is getting headlines but the problem with inappropriate sexual relationships and acts between teachers and students is a problem across the nation. Teachers abuse their positions of trust and selfishly prey on their students. You can read more about these issues at Teacher Sex with Students Incidents and Studies.
