Tennille Whitaker, a 40-year-old Nevada elementary school teacher, has resigned after being accused of having sexual relationships with at least two students at the school.

Whitaker, 40, was teaching fourth-grade at the Wells Elementary School in Elko, Nevada. Elko resigned on August 16 after she was arrested June 5 on charges of engaging in sexual relations with two high school students aged 16 and 18.

While the Elko County school district initiated its own investigation in February, the sheriff’s department began investigating Whitaker in October 2016 based on a tip from a parent, who had allegedly seen the teacher and a teen alone behind a closed classroom door.

According to the report from the Daily Caller, Whitaker, a mother-of-two, reportedly had sex with the students on school grounds.

Elko County School trustees accepted the resignation of a Wells elementary teacher accused of inappropriate relationships with two high school students.

Tennille Whitaker’s letter of resignation was received by the school district Aug. 16 and it was approved as part of a consent agenda with three other items.

Whittaker is charged with eight counts of sexual conduct with a pupil. Court documents said the students were between the ages of 16 and 18 years old at the time of the alleged incidents..

Superintendent Jeff Zander said Whitaker was on administrative leave with pay after her arrest June 5.
