Andrea Conners in the Highlander Yearbook
On National Teacher Appreciation Day, one Highlands High School teacher can no longer claim to be apart of Highlands' esteemed teaching corp.
Andrea Conners abruptly submitted her letter of resignation last Thursday and hired an attorney Saturday. No one is saying a word. No one has to.
The local news outlets, the school, nor Conners are commenting directly on the allegations swirling around the streets of Fort Thomas, but the details will be forthcoming. And the residents will eat them up like a pack of jackals. Early reports have Conners resigning due to an alleged sexual relationship with a student(s).
Highlands has been so tight lipped about the situation, teachers at the school were not even told the teacher's name.
Conners, who has taught business at Highlands for the last 8 years, has by all accounts been a good teacher. Here's her profile on ratemyteacher.com. On a scale of 1-5, she is rated 4.1 on the easy scale. That's pretty easy, if you ask me. (hat tip to CM Tomlin on that joke).
When I was looking up ratemyteacher.com, I took this screenshot:
In the wake of all these teacher scandals, perhaps the brain-trust at ratemyteacher.com may want to change the wording here.
