Hudson elementary teacher resigns following allegations

HUDSON, TX (KTRE) - A teacher in the elementary system at Hudson ISD has resigned following allegations over a "situation."

Superintendent Mary Ann Whiteker said the teacher resigned on Thursday.

"An investigation has been completed," Whiteker said. "We are following protocol."

Whiteker would not comment on who the teacher is or more on the allegation. She did clarify the incident did not occur on school property nor during school hours.

"I am sure at the appropriate time more facts will be brought to light but at this time I cannot comment," Whiteker said.

Whiteker said the paperwork on the investigation is being finalized and then it will be taken to the next level. Whiteker would not describe what that next level is.

In a separate incident, Whiteker said an elementary student has been disciplined for bringing a pellet gun to school this week. She said the investigation revealed the boy had been at home and put the pellet gun in his backpack and went to a neighbor's house. When he returned home, he forgot he had the pellet gun in his backpack and took it to school the next day.

"When he noticed it was there, he was too scared to tell anyone and didn't say anything," Whiteker said. "A girl saw it there and told the teacher."

"We believe it was an accident but we did the appropriate discipline," Whiteker said.
