Pa. teacher fired for having sex in her classroom



Published: Fri, February 25, 2011 @ 1:21 p.m.

MCKEESPORT, Pa. (AP) — A Pittsburgh-area teacher suspended since 2006 on immorality charges has been fired for having sex in a classroom with the former president of the teachers’ union.

The McKeesport Area School Board voted Wednesday to fire 55-year-old Angela DiBattista, who taught at Cornell Intermediate School until she was suspended.

DiBattista requested a public dismissal hearing which occurred in several sessions last year and during which her attorney acknowledged she had an affair with fellow teacher Patrick Collins until 2004, after which she accused him of harassing her.

Collins was fired before he was absolved of those charges and rehired in 2005. He then retired in 2006.

Collins testified during DiBattista’s hearing that they had sex in classrooms on several occasions, but never when students were present.

I have to ass-ume Mr. Collins's was first fired, then rehired in 2005 and then to turn right around and retire in 2006 had nothing to do with his pension now would it?

Sounds like the PA schools are taking care of business MV style to me. There I go again ass-uming again?

What a waste of taxpayers money. These types of situations are only the start to what is wrong with the public employees, the position of the union and it's protections do nothing to make sure that the taxpayers are protected from being taken advantage of. It is all in the fine print of these contract and needs to be addressed before we can move on as a country, or we will end up no better than being a 3rd world country serving the needs of China.
