Ganado teacher accused of inappropriate contact with a student resigns

Last week Newscenter 25 reported that Ganadao Independent School District has placed a Junior High teacher on administrative leave pending investigation of alleged inappropriate contact with a student in the classroom.

Friday Gandao ISD Superintendent, John Hardwick, Jr., sent the following letter to the parents.

“To the Parents of 6th Grade Students:

Last week a concern involving classroom management was brought to the attention of GISD administration about one of your child’s teachers. Upon investigation into the allegations, the administration found that our students were not placed in a situation of harm. However, the teacher in question has resigned the position at GISD.

This week we have used a substitute in the classroom to ensure your child’s education continues. Beginning 10/3/19, Shelby Macha assumed the duties of the classroom. Ms. Macha has an extensive background in mathematics. She has been successfully working beside our math teachers for several years. She will continue to provide instruction until a time when a certified teacher is available. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.”
