Calif. teacher resigns after leaving family for student

Debbie Noda / Zuma Press

Enochs High School student Jordan Powers, 18, and James Hooker, 41, a teacher who recently resigned from Enochs High School, talk about their relationship on Feb. 28.

Modesto police are investigating if there’s a criminal case against a former high school teacher who resigned his job to move into an apartment with an 18-year-old girl he met while teaching.

James Hooker, 41, was placed on administrative leave Feb. 3 by Modesto City Schools and resigned less than three weeks later, according to a report at ...odesto Bee.

The newspaper reports that the man, who had taught business and computer classes, left his wife and children, to move in with Jordan Powers, an Enochs High School senior whom he met when she was a freshman at the school.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

Well this is just dispicable.

Not so much the age difference dealy, but the fact he's leaving his family for what? That hussy!?

And what the hell she see in that man!? He ain't even all that fine.

I'll give it a couple of months before she leaves him for a younger man.

1.) You have no idea what type of family he is leaving. It could have been a great family dynamic or it could have been horrible and maybe leaving is the best thing that could have happened to everyone in this situation.

2.) What makes her a "hussy"? She's a whore because she (however it happened) fell for this man?

3.) You have no idea what this man is really like so questioning why she likes him is kinda ridiculous...or maybe (going by your comment above) you think that looks are what's most important when choosing a partner.

I dunno, I personally think an older person being with someone this young is odd but I'm not going to pretend I know anything about how this all happened.

So do I. Especially if he has daughters. First he makes them inherit that surname, and now this disgrace.

Yeah, I have no idea truly about the family dynamics of this man's family, nor what he really is like.

What I said is my own personal opinion based on what I read. Just because you chose not to express an opinion about this, doesn't mean I have to do the same. I never claimed that my opinion is a fact. So you don't have to take it as such.

If you don't like what you read in my comment, take it at face value and move on.

I agree althought I think the age difference is very dispicable. He's most likely the same age or older than her own father.

And he is moving in with her which means she, at age 18, is supporting a 41 year old unemployed man with lots of baggage.

Talk about damaged goods.

Leaving his children for some 18 year old hussy is the best thing for them? confuse

2.) What makes her a "hussy"? She's a whore because she (however it happened) fell for this man?

She is a hussy because she willing engaged in an affair with a married father who happened to be old enough to be her own father. Adultery and fornication aside, she's also stupid. lol

3.) You have no idea what this man is really like so questioning why she likes him is kinda ridiculous...or maybe (going by your comment above) you think that looks are what's most important when choosing a partner.

Why is questioning her attraction to him ridiculous? This hookup has made headlines. They put their business out there for the public to question. And looks do matter in many animal species. We are first attracted to what we see. His attraction to her is obvious but her attraction to him....not so much. sexy troll

Or maybe you should just accept that comments on here are questioned and challenged. That's the way it works for everyone. An exception will not be made for you because you don't like certain responses.

Don't like that? Don't post in the first place and you won't have this problem. thumbs up!
