The police investigation into a substitute teacher dismissed for “inappropriate and unprofessional” behavior from Robert B. Turner Elementary School has been turned over the county attorney’s office.

The substitute teacher, who has not been named by the school district or police, had not been charged with a crime as of Tuesday morning.

Office Nathan Doty of the Lawrenceburg Police Department said he has turned over statements given by students and the results of his investigation to County Attorney Bobbi Jo Lewis.

Exactly what the teacher is accused of doing has not yet been made public.

The woman was a substitute for the school’s fifth grade, which is divided into four classes. All four of the classes had rotated through the woman’s class by the time Turner Principal Wayne Reese was notified of the situation.

The woman exhibited inappropriate behavior with each group of students, but the severity of the behavior escalated throughout the day, Superintendent Kim Shaw said.

“The majority of these actions occurred later on in the day with the last group of students,” he said.
