A B.C. teacher has been reprimanded for sending inappropriate texts to one of her students.
Daphne Anne Neal, a teacher in Invermere, southwest of Banff has been stripped of her teaching license over racy text messages.
According to the Teacher Regulation Branch, in December of 2012, Neal sent over 50 messages to a grade 11 student, including telling him she was attracted to him.
She says she was intoxicated when she sent many messages but admits it does not excuse her actions.
In January of 2013, when Neal’s actions were made public, she pulled the student aside and said it was a serious condition that could go wrong.
When the district investigated, Neal denied she sent any texts.
Neal was terminated in August of 2013 and as of last month she no longer holds a teaching license.
