AMA: The Epidemic of Unlawful Teacher/Student Relationships.
This AMA will provide a clear examination of why teachers — typically high school teachers — reach a point in their own cognitive distortions when they think it is permissible to carry on an adult-like physical and/or emotional relationship with a student. Questions will be answered from a very personal and unique perspective because I was one of those teachers.
Unfortunately, teachers and school administrators both struggle with the same problem: They are unaware of the actual problem or how to actually fix it; they only see the result, the aftermath, and the damage.
This problem is not simply that teacher and students are having inappropriate relationships. That is merely the result.
The problem is much deeper, much more complex, and much more obvious than anyone wants to admit. Essentially, I am answering the simple (yet complex) question: Why?
Educators see disgraced teachers like me on television, shake their heads at our horrid choices, see we are going to prison, and then never hear from us again; out of sight, out of mind. Therefore, another purpose of this AMA is to provide a glimpse into what happens to teachers when we aren’t the top news story anymore, forced to live in the shadows of humiliation and disgrace. I use my own narrative experience as an eye-opening example of what happens to a teacher, both before the news story airs and after it has faded into the archives.
