Another day, another teacher-student(s) inappropriate relationship(s). This time coming from, yep, you guessed it–The Sunshine State! This story is making national news, but in Florida it probably was just a soft whisper in the neighborhood before some other lunatic on Flakka stripped naked and took a shit on a cop cruiser or something.
According to NY Daily News,
A Florida teacher has been suspended after she allegedly sent explicit pictures to students.
Dionne Younce, a gym teacher at Allen D Nease High School in Ponte Vedra Beach, has been suspended from the school while police investigate.
The 28-year-old is accused of sexual misconduct involving at least three students, according to The St. Augustine Record.
St. Johns County School District spokeswoman Christina Langston said her suspension followed the discovery of messages to students.
At least three students said Younce texted them, investigators said.
One student’s said he had a relationship with Younce that started as subtle flirtation and progressed to “sexual snapping,” where the two would send nude photos to each other, according to WJXT in Florida.
Four other male students, whose names and ages were redacted, and two assistant principals were also listed on the report.
Younce, who is listed on the school’s website as the head coach for the girl’s weightlifting team (which I guess is a thing?), could be facing two second-degree felony charges, described as “lewd or lascivious act upon a child,” according to St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Cmdr. Chuck Mulligan.
I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to fully understand how teachers can be such reckless buffoons. Teachers are supposed to be smart, logical, level-headed. And it seems like every day we hear about them putting complete trust in hormone-raging adolescents who can’t look at Aunt Jemima on a maple syrup label in the morning without getting hard.
Like what’s the first thing you would do if you were back in high school and got a sexually suggestive gesture from a teacher? I feel confidence in answering this for you: WE’D TELL FUCKING EVERYBODY WE’VE EVER KNOWN. As we should–we’re not liable legally and our street cred would sore higher than Red Lobster’s after Beyonce dropped them in her song. The only thing we’d have to lose was possible our virginity. And I’m confident we’d both be cool with that.
But these teachers, man. I understand that its very easy to develop a personal connection with some by being with them every day. Part of your job is to find out what makes them tick. I understand that a sexual relationship with a 17 year old is considered deplorable but the second that person turns 18, it’s totally fine, not necessarily because it accurately reflects the maturity level of the person but because the law somewhat arbitrarily (albeit understandably) needs a benchmark.
But fuck man, you can’t tell me that this chick Dionne Younce can’t walk into any bar in America and walk out with almost any guy she wanted. Instead, she’s reportedly sending tit shots to pimple-faced punks without a driver’s license.
Not mad about it at all though….
(Dionne, hit me up on Snap: kingkeohan)
