A former Langley elementary school teacher who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a former student has been barred for teaching anywhere in the province.
The Teachers’ Regulation Branch says Deborah Ralph’s teaching certificate has been cancelled.
She admitted to sexually assaulting a former student at James Kennedy Elementary in Langley, now she is banned from teaching in the province of B.C.
Ralph pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a boy from 1998-2001 while he was between the ages of 11 to 13.
He came forward and reported the crimes years later. Ralph was fired from her school in June 2012.
In a consent resolution agreement, Ralph agrees not to apply for a certificate of qualification or an independent school teaching certificate.
In March, Ralph was handed a conditional sentence of two years less a day for sexually assaulting a boy from 1998-2001 while he was between the ages of 11 to 13.
