I have been a teacher/coach for the past 24 years with an honorable

Resolved Question:

I have been a teacher/coach for the past 24 years with an honorable reputation. I have been accused by a third party of having an inappropriate relationship with an 18 yr. old senior student. We have had no sexual contact other that kissing on three occasions.
I have told her we cannot have a sexual relationship, and we have not. I have now been put on administrative leave while the school investigates further. The student and I have talked on many occasions together with other students and faculty present. I have treated this relationship as a mentor to help her pursue her future goals. What are my chances of getting through this and still keeping my job? The student has also admitted to no sexual contact other than the kissing.

Thank you for using!


With the admission of kissing and it being a student-teacher relationship? Your chances are likely zero.


I hate to sound harsh but that's the unvarnished truth.
