*It used to be that every time you heard about a teacher having sexual relations with a student it was always involved someone white. Well guess what? The phenomenon has crossed over.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that a Teacher of the Year at a Gwinnett County school has resigned after admitting to having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student, according to records obtained by the paper.
Keenon Aampay Hall, 29, left a promising career as an English teacher at Shiloh High School amid allegations that she seduced a senior who came to her for homework help.
An investigative file on the case compiled by the school system’s human resources division contains the student’s accounts of sexual trysts at a hotel, a friend’s home and in the teacher’s classroom during school hours. The report also says that pornography was found on Hall’s Gwinnett County schools laptop.
The student, a player on Shiloh’s football team who is to graduate Friday, claimed that Hall gave him gifts and pressured him to commit to their six-month relationship by giving her a baby, according to the file. When he declined, the student’s family said, Hall gave him a failing grade, prompting him to report the relationship to school officials.
“The allegation of the inappropriate behavior came to light because the teacher decreased the student’s grade,” Gwinnett schools spokeswoman Sloan Roach said.
