Lekeshia Jones, 34, a former business teacher at Myers Middle School in Savannah, Georgia, was fired by the Savannah-Chatham school board after it was discovered that several of her students accessed nude selfies she saved in her cell-phone, reports SavannahNow.com.

The formal reasons for her dismissal were “being irresponsible with her phone, for not properly handling or reporting the incident and for insubordination in the weeks that followed.”

“Back home [Natchez, Miss.] my family is prominent,” she said. “I’m the Natchez Indians [Mardis Gras Ball] Queen. Nothing like this has ever happened to me.”

What exactly happened remains unclear.

 District officials testified Jones had given the students her cellphone password to call home, then left the phone unattended. They also said she did not report the incident but asked students to text the social media chatter back to her so she could track down the culprits on her own.

When district officials found out about it and removed Jones from Myers pending termination, they said she failed to report to work for three weeks. During that time they say Jones also forged a 2015 teaching contract offer in order to secure a loan.

When she finally resumed work at DeRenne Middle, she left her phone unattended a second time, and it was taken by yet another student.

What they saw became the hottest topic on the middle schoolers’ social media sites for weeks — Jones lying in bed with her nude body partially draped in a sheet, a nude selfie and a close up of female anatomy.

Jones, however, tells a different story.

She claims that after sending students to get scissors, they never came back. She then went looking for them and found them right where started—in her classroom.

According to Jones, the students allegedly had somehow circumvented her password and discovered the nude selfies. They then took screen-shots of the images, texted them to friends and shared on social media.

The students started a Facebook page – titled “T.H.O.T (That Ho Over There)” – and used other social media to share the images with their peers, according to Myers Middle School Principal Ericka Washington.

Jones insists that she’s the “victim.”

“I’m grown,” Jones said. “…Whatever is in my phone is my business … There is nothing in the policy about what you can or cannot have in your phone.”

    She gave these students her password, didn’t report it when she found out about the picture, and abandon her job for three weeks when the school asked her about what happened. You know what you have on your phone. Why would you freely give kids not your phone? Kids will be kids but adults must be responsible.

  2. She left her phone unattended at another school after the incident at Myers. How many chances does she need???? You would think that when she resumed employment at a new school she would leave that phone locked up some where.

      People leave their cars” unattended” everyday..i.e. parking lots, garages etc…Doesn’t give anyone the right to steal it. Her phone is personal property as is cars, computers etc….No one has the right to steal either attended or unattended.

    I think this is a slippery slope, after all these students stole her cellphone and posted her pictures..violating her rights to privacy…If she is fired, the students should face punishment as well, including criminal charges. Although, this teacher is too stupid to be in the classroom.
