Principal And Gym Teacher Fired After Taking Videos Of Themselves Having Sex In School Bathroom

Two Georgia educators have been fired after an investigation confirmed claims of sexual misconduct on school property, Fox News confirmed.

According to a six-page report released by the Banks County Board of Education, gym teacher Dylan Charles has been in a sexual relationship with the school’s principal, Dr. Dana Simmons for years. The affair, that Dr. Simmons referred to as an “inappropriate friendship,” occurred both on and off campus of Banks County Elementary School.

Initially, Dr. Simmons denied that any sexual misconduct had occurred on school property, but video footage from Charles’ phone did not corroborate with her claims. Charles’ wife, a third grade teacher at the school, would occasionally arrange and film the sex acts between Simmons and her husband. She told investigators that the now former principal “pressured her to allow her to have sex with her husband” in order to advance their careers.

A former attendance clerk later came forward, after learning about the incident, and told investigators that Dr. Simmons had approached her about joining a “group of swingers,” but she declined. Another teacher had allegedly left the school district for similar reasons, noting that the principal’s behavior was “unprofessional.”

“It should have never happened,” said the president of the Georgia Federation of Teachers. “It shows poor judgment, it shows a lack of good character, and it also shows a lack of respect for the taxpayer’s property.”

All three involved are no longer listed as Banks County employees.
