A Nevada fourth grade teacher has resigned after allegedly having sexual relations with at least two teen boys.
School administrators told the Elko Daily Free Press that 40-year-old Tennille Whitaker resigned earlier this month. The married mother-of-two was arrested in June and has been charged with eight counts of sexual conduct with a pupil. She was placed on paid leave after arrest.
According to a press release from Elko County Sheriff's Office, the two alleged victims were 16 and 18 at the time.
In that press release, police suspected that she may have also engaged in sexual activity with school employees and volunteers.
A parent tipped off police after she allegedly caught Whitaker and a teen alone behind a closed classroom door, according to The Daily Caller.
