Texas Teacher Accused of Improper Relations with Student
accused of engaging in an inappropriate relationship with a student.
Knighten resigned her teaching position yesterday.
“Another allegation of this sort is alarming and disappointing,” said ECISD spokesman Mike Adkins said in a statement. “The school district provides training to address this issue each year, and we plan more in the future. Our teachers are hired to teach, support, and inspire our students to great achievement and it is unacceptable to an educator to cross the line from professional to personal relationship.”Details on the Knighten's offense not reported.
“We are glad these allegations are being reported, and we investigate every report that comes to us,” Adkins said. “We will do everything in our power to address this immediately.”
