BAKER - A teacher at Baker High School is suspended indefinitely after students accused her of inappropriate behavior.

All of this came to light when a student complained to the principal. When administrators began asking questions, other students corroborated that student's story according to Superintendent Ulysses Joseph.

Joseph immediately launched an investigation. He said the allegations were sexual in nature and were both verbal and physical.

"I do believe it happened on school grounds," Joseph said.

An email obtained by the WBRZ Investigative Unit shows the teacher was placed on paid leave indefinitely. The email states students made allegations of inappropriate conversations and allegations of inappropriate actions.

"Touching in the wrong places on the part of the student or offered the student to touch in the wrong place," Joseph said.

Currently, the school system is investigating, and the letter to school board members indicates it will likely be turned over to law enforcement.

WBRZ is not releasing the name of the teacher until the investigation is complete or unless criminal charges result.

The teacher has been with the school system for about a year, and taught Math.
