Award winning teacher sentenced for sex scandal involving 17-year-old

 July 17, 2023

Although First Lady Jill Biden and other Democrats often laud teachers as "heroes," some of them turn out to be villains.

That was the case in Benton County, Arkansas, where an award-winning former teacher was sentenced to 58 days in jail and six years probation. 

Perpetrator named Teacher of the Year in 2022

According to KNWA, 44-year-old Leah Ruthann Queen this past fall over a sexual relationship she had with a 17-year-old student back in 2010.

Queen had sex with the student in her office and a school bathroom as well as in her home where she was caught by her husband multiple times.

Breitbart noted that upon being named Teacher of the Year in 2022, Queen said, "When I was a girl in the second grade, I had a teacher who did not make me feel like I was very much."

"I just wanted to love my babies," Queen continued, adding, "I have a passion and drive for this and they love me back."

Transgender drag teacher convicted on 11 felony counts

Unfortunately, Queen is far from being the only educator to be caught preying on minors, with the Post Millennial reported in March that Oregon elementary school teaching assistant and transgender drag performer Kelsey Meta Boren was convicted on 11 felony counts of encouraging child sexual abuse in the first degree.

Meanwhile, Hawaii News Now reported that former high school teacher Alden Bunag is expected to plead guilty to distributing child pornography.

Nearly 10% of students are targets of "educator sexual misconduct"

In addition to being accused of having sex with a 13-year-old boy during school lunch breaks, Bunag also exchanged child pornography with another teacher from Philadelphia.

A Fox News investigation found that "at least 349 kindergarten through 12th-grade educators were arrested on child sex crimes" over the course of 2022.

Meanwhile, a Department of Education report published in 2004 found that "9.6% of students are targets of educator sexual misconduct sometime during their school career."
