C. J. Huff about arrested teacher: It angers me to know those people are out there

Joplin R-8 Superintendent C. J. Huff says that if the charges against Joplin High School communication arts teacher Jessica Low are confirmed, he will go after her teaching license.

"It angers me, it frustrates me to no end, to know those people are out there," Huff said.

The Joplin Police Department arrested Ms. Low, 32, shortly after school ended Wednesday at the 9-10 Center (the former Memorial Middle School) on charges of statutory sodomy and furnishing pornography to a minor.

Ms. Low allegedly sent inappropriate photos of herself to students, according to the police.

Ms. Low has been teaching at Joplin High School since the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year.

Maybe if so many teachers hadn't left R8 in the past few years, this wouldn't have happened.

My thoughts exactly! Keep the good teachers instead of getting rid of those with higher standards and stand up for themselves and their students!
