I have lost count of stories like these, I guess this is the norm for today’s classrooms.

LONDONDERRY, N.H. (CBS/WBZ) Perhaps New Hampshire high school teacher Melinda Dennehy missed the orientation session when they explained that sending your naked photos to a student is sort of a bad idea.
Police say the 41-year-old English teacher sent four sexy shots of herself to a 15-year-old male student at Londonderry High School. The student, it seems, thought that was pretty nifty. Police say he forwarded the images to his friends.
Former teacher Ashley Jo Beach has to serve at least 4 years, but who is counting. Anyway the judge was pretty hard on this cougar who was bold enough to have sex with the student in her classroom.
Former Idaho middle school teacher will spend at least the next four years in prison after pleading guilty to having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old student. Ashley Jo Beach says the relationship went on for several months.
Whoa. These two took ‘Hot For Teacher’ to a whole new level.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Do I even need to say anything about the ‘Hot For Teacher’ phenomenon? This chick was pretty bold in where she wanted to do the do. More below:

Officers in Meridian, Idaho received a call at 9:30 p.m. Thursday concerning something suspicious happening in some bushes not far from the town middle school. That’s when they found science and math teacher Ashley Jo Beach laying down with a 13-year-old student.
Their stories didn’t quite match, and it is rather hard for a 37-year-old teacher to explain what she’s doing in the bushes with a little kid. Now she’s been charged with having an affair with the student since April.
According to court records, the odd couple apparently had been having sex at school. They’d also sent each other pictures of their privates. Beach is charged with lewd contact with a child under 16.
This sounds similiar to the epidemic of priest sodomizing young boys a few years back, but probably is a little more accepatable due to the fact some of these young boys might have a case of serious ‘hot for teacher’.
But I do concur that if these cases were purely men on young girls that the outrage and individual cases would be covered like the swine flu. Anyway Time Magazine has a in depth article on this phenomenon down south:
If you’re the parent of a teen-aged boy in Florida, you probably muttered “not again” while reading your morning newspaper this week. There on the front page was yet another case of an adult female teacher being arrested for admitting to having had sex with an underage male student. This time the alleged perp was Maria Guzman Hernandez, a 32-year-old instructor at the private Our Lady of Charity school in Hialeah; her victim was 15. But she just as well could have been the 34-year-old Jacksonville public-school science teacher arrested last month for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old student, once in her SUV; or the 32-year-old St. Petersburg teacher collared in March for allegedly “sexting” nude pictures of herself to an 8th-grade boy; or the 45-year-old teacher at a private Christian academy in South Daytona arrested days before for allegedly having sex with a boy from her class in various Daytona Beach hotels.

Other female teachers in Florida have been booked for the same crime this year — and scores of others have also been arrested or disciplined in the past few years for sexual misconduct with students, according to a recent investigation by the Orlando
Sentinel, which noted the problem is rising in the state “among female educators in particular.” Florida, of course, is hardly the only state where female teachers have been nabbed for preying on boys. And nationwide, male teachers still commit far more sexual misconduct than females. A 2004 Education Department study found that about 10% of the nation’s 50 million public-school students had experienced some kind of improper sexual attention from teachers and other school employees; and a 2007 Associated Press report indicated that men were involved almost 90% of the time. What’s more, even in Florida those offenders are a small fraction of the state’s more than 200,000 public and private school teachers. (View the Top 10 Crime Stories of 2008.)
But parents and prosecutors alike are nonetheless asking why the female version of pedagogue perversion seems more common on their peninsula compared to other places. “It certainly seems more prevalent, although we can’t say for sure if it’s worse than other large states,” says Michael Sinacore, the Hillsborough County assistant state attorney who, in 2005, prosecuted one of Florida’s most high-profile cases, that of Tampa middle-school teacher Debra Lafave, a blond siren who pleaded guilty to lewd and lascivious behavior after being charged with having sex with a 14-year-old boy. (In a controversial decision, a judge did not make her serve prison time.) “None of us can really say why at this point.”
