CLINTON, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Director of Anderson County Schools says charges of dismissal will be brought against Clinton High School teacher Megan Baumann, 27.

Baumann is accused of having an improper sexual relationship with a student.

She has been a social studies teacher at Clinton High School since August 2007, and was suspended indefinitely February 5.

In a letter written to Bauman, Anderson County Schools Director Larry M. Foster accused Baumann of "(engaging) in intimate sexual acts, inappropriate texting, inappropriate picture transmissions and other inappropriate conduct of a physical nature."

Foster chastised Bauman, saying, "Your conduct is flagrant, egregious and reprehensible and calls for dismissal."

Under state law, has a right to request a hearing before a "an impartial hearing officer selected by the (Anderson County School) Board," the letter states. Baumann has 30 days to notify Foster in writing that she wants a dismissal hearing.

    Is this woman going to be put on the sex offender list? You know if she were a man she would be on there in a heart beat. My kids go to Clinton thank God they are girls.

    I wonder if they'll consider calling for the state to revoke her license to teach? Well, it's no one's fault but her own for getting fired for inappropriate behavior. It's no wonder parents are choosing to homeschool their kids. Btw, I guess she can go to work for Hooters, Shoney's or The Waffle House as a waitress now.
