I have educated over 12,000 teachers during my life in education. If one desires to create silence in a class of teachers, simply raise the topic of “how many of you during the course of the day have sexual feelings toward students?” Naturally, this emotion is most felt within those teaching secondary children from grades 7-12. I once interviewed teachers about stress in the classroom. Out of curiosity, I asked secondary teachers if they ever had a sexual feeling or encounter with students. Ten percent quietly admitted this emotion. Today, a news report from Garnet Valley Middle School in Pennsylvania revealed that teacher William Barber was charged with sexual relations with a fifteen year old female student.
The teacher claimed the girl sent him nude photos and kissed him while in his office. “Your body drives me crazy” he admits to telling the girl. Reality: A male or female teacher just entering the profession is in his or her twenties. They are teaching sixteen or seventeen or eighteen year old males and females. They would readily date these individuals if not in their classrooms. However, about ten percent may proceed with the dating.
