Worst Sex Ed Teacher Of All Time Accused of Unspeakable Act

Twisted 19

sex ed teacherI think most of us can probably agree that the vast majority of teachers are amazing, generous, passionate people who have the power to inspire our children to greatness. Every now and then, however, there comes a story about someone who's such a disgrace to the profession, it's downright mind-boggling. I'm sorry to report that this is one of those stories, and it involves a Texas sex ed teacher who's accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old.

Marlena Mints, 31, has been charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child and two counts of improper relationship with students -- after allegations surfaced that she'd performed oral sex on one of her students. During recess.

Mints is a health teacher and coach at Bessie Coleman Middle School in Cedar Hill, Texas. As the story goes, one of her 13-year-old eighth-grade students texted her that he had a problem with his penis, to which she said she could help but that she "needed to see it" and asked him to come into her class. According to what the boy told investigators, he exposed himself to her, thinking it was okay because she was a health specialist, and that's when Mints allegedly performed oral sex on him.

The student also said that he and other classmates were allowed to touch her breast and buttocks while spending time in her classroom.

Mints is accused of assaulting another student who's a high school senior. The arrest warrant said the second victim also exchanged text messages with Mint, during which she asked if he wanted to "hang out" and if he liked "white girls." She then reportedly picked the boy up, drove him to her home and engaged in oral sex with him. Evidence of the messages exchanged with Mints are on his phone, police say.

The teacher has been suspended from her job and is currently being held in Dallas County Jail.

Boy, it's hard to even know what to say about this, isn't it? If the allegations turn out to be true, this woman deserves every bit of justice the legal system can throw at her. Regardless of the circumstances under which these events may have happened, the fact remains that she's a 31-year-old teacher responsible for taking care of her young students -- not BLOWING THEM DURING RECESS, for god's sake.

How angry would you be if you were one of these boys' parents?

As a teacher, I am always absolutely disgusted and aghast at what some "teachers" do. My first question though, before we even get to the criminal allegations, is what on earth was she doing texting her students? Not just during school, but at all! She should not even be sharing her cell number with them, that is way beyond the boundaries of professionally appropriate! Just wow.

I agree with everything above! And want to add the question of how she got the job of a HEALTH teacher looking like that? Shouldn't teachers lead by example?

Devils advocate here: only suspend probably because in America we are all innocent until proven guilty. She is a union member most likely and therefore the school cannot fire her until a jury finds her guilty. Also, from my understanding more teachers are giving out cell phone numbers in order for kids to text them questions on homework, that or tger friend them on FB.



Not saying any of this is "right" just stating what is

What kind of issue would a 13 yr old boy have with his penis?

hello... hellokd87

There should NEVER be any contact between student/teacher outside of the classroom! With the advancement of technology, there should be a forum or email address set up where the students can email the teacher, MONITORED BY THE DISTRICT!! I'm getting tired of hearing about stories like this. What is this world coming to?!

@hellokd: so, you are saying that teachers should never acknowledge their students in a public place, like the grocery store? Of courseteacher should not be giving out cell phone numbers or facebooking students; email should be reserved for school events or classroom assignments in only on school email. but there isn't anything wrong with teachers acknowledging their students in a public place and even engaging them in conversation.
