The teacher is Nikki Varney. She is employed by the Willamsburg Community School District. According to the school district’s website, Nikki Varney has been at the school for two decades. She currently teaches science, chemistry and physics.
Police charged her with institutional sexual assault, statutory sexual assault, corruption of minors and unlawful contact with minors.
According to the report, the police got involved after school officials told authorities that Varney was in having intercourse with a male student. A spokesperson for school district told local media that Varney has been placed on administrative leave.
What is triggering this trend? According to various reports, experts say social media is making it easier for teachers and students to communicate privately. This enables them to get close — they share information about their private lives. As for the age difference, apparently the female teachers involved in these sort of cases are fueled by the feeling power they get over the young male students with whom they share a romance.
