A NJ high school teacher is out of a job after allegedly kissing a 17-year-old boy in her classroom (on the lips), following the female educator last month sending the teen risque photos and racy text messages.
Chelsea Hahn, 25, was fired by the Ewing Board of Education, effective June 30, following the woman’s arrest last month on three counts of endangering the welfare of a child through sexual contact during her tenure as English teacher at Ewing High School, the Trentonian reported.
Police said Hahn, of Ewing, ‘impaired or debauched the morals’ of the teen student by using her phone to text him raunchy messages and nude photos of herself, as well as asking him to have sex.
Offered school district officials, ‘The district took such action upon receiving information from the Ewing Township Police and Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office and also as a result of notification from the New Jersey Department of Education that Ms. Hahn was arrested and facing charges for a disqualifying crime or offense’.
In a statement released last month, district officials said they were ‘deeply saddened’ by Hahn’s arrest.
‘We have the highest expectations for professional behavior on the part of our staff and the well-being of our students is our foremost concern,’ Schools Superintendent Michael Nitti and Ewing High School Principal Edward Chmiel said. ‘Please know that we handled this matter professionally and cooperated fully with relevant law enforcement officials as soon as we became aware of this situation.’
