Arrested High School Teacher Wasn't Certified To Teach High School


The Lanphier High School teacher who now faces criminal charges for an alleged sexual relationship with a student did not have the proper credentials to teach at the high school level.

 

The State Journal-Register reports that Jennifer Tyree was an “emergency hire” by District 186 two days before the start of the school year.

 

District officials say she was seen as the best option to fill a vacancy, even though she only had a certification to teach elementary and middle school, not high school.

 

Tyree was arrested this week and charged with criminal sexual assault over her relationship with a 17-year-old student.
