Wyandotte teacher accused of sexting with student

"I really want to take my child out of this school!" said Yvonne Leciejewski, a parent.

Parents in Wyandotte were upset Wednesday, after hearing that a female teacher at Roosevelt High School is accused of sending inappropriate messages to a male student.

"Nobody from this school has explained how they’re going to keep this from happening again," said Leciejewski.

The superintendent sent a letter to parents Tuesday, saying the school learned of an inappropriate conversation between a student and the teacher over text message.

"We live in very different times today. We live in a very electronic age where it’s easy to communicate," said Brian Hagger, a parent.

"You send you your kids to school to learn - not to learn other things," said Paula Skelly, a parent.

Students and parents tell Fox 2, the student is a senior on the school's football team -- and the teacher is known to be overly friendly in person -- and on social media.

"She flirts with like every guy. She coaches track," said Brooklyn Neifert, a student.

“She’s always on Twitter. She sends so many tweets,” said Araceli Navarro, a student.”

The Superintendent told parents in part:

“As you can imagine, this was difficult to even comprehend. We are taking this very seriously and in the interest of doing a complete investigation, the teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave. We are in the process of interviewing many individuals and have been in touch with our district attorney.”

In that letter the superintendent also asks for parents to contact the district if they hear anything that may be helpful as they continue to investigate.

"If this happened and they know this happened and they put the teacher on a leave, why is this teacher getting paid?” asked Leciejewski.

Wyandotte police say they're not involved at this time.  Fox 2 stopped to speak with the teacher. The person who answered the door wouldn’t comment.

"If she's innocent that's fine, but if they’ve got proof then she needs to be fired and prosecuted, because that's just wrong," said Dave Gate, a parent.

Meanwhile, the Superintendent hopes the focus can turn to the school's homecoming festivities and says more information should be available later this week.
