    Retired McKeesport Area teacher admits to sex in school

    June 3 2010

    Retired teacher Patrick Collins admitted to having sexual relations in classrooms with suspended teacher Angela DiBattista in the most revealing testimony Tuesday evening during a three-hour McKeesport Area School District disciplinary hearing.


    On a night when the district finished its case, McKeesport special counsel Carl Beard asked Mr. Collins whether he and Ms. DiBattista, both fourth-grade teachers, had an affair and whether they had sexual relations in a school setting.


    Mr. Collins answered that he and Ms. DiBattista had sexual relations during their affair outside of school and "six, seven, eight" times in classrooms at Centennial Elementary and Cornell Intermediate schools.

    Western Pa. teacher fired for sex in classroom

    25 Feb 2011

    A Pittsburgh-area teacher suspended since 2006 on immorality charges has been fired for having sex in a classroom with the former president of the teachers' union. The McKeesport Area School Board voted Wednesday to fire 55-year-old Angela DiBattista, who taught at Cornell Intermediate School until she was suspended.

    DiBattista requested a public dismissal hearing which occurred in several sessions last year and during which her attorney acknowledged she had an affair with fellow teacher Patrick Collins until 2004, after which she accused him of harassing her. Collins was fired before he was absolved of those charges and rehired in 2005. He then retired in 2006.

    Teacher fired over sex in Pa. classroom rehired: Angela DiBattista teaching in McKeesport Area School District again

    28 Aug 2014

    A western Pennsylvania schoolteacher fired after she admitted having had sex with another teacher inside a classroom a decade ago is back on the job following an appeals court decision overturning her firing ... DiBattista reported for work Monday as a math teacher in the district, where classes began Wednesday.

    McKeesport Area teacher fired for having sex in classroom reinstated

    27 Aug 2014

    Angela DiBattista has been rehired by the McKeesport Area School District after an almost nine-year battle with district officials. The district suspended Ms. DiBattista without pay in January 2006, when she was a fourth-grade teacher at Cornell Intermediate School, and fired her in February 2011 on immorality charges after she testified during a district judicial proceeding that she had sex with Patrick Collins, a teacher and former teachers union president, on campus during school hours while two other teachers served as lookouts. While Ms. DiBattista was dismissed from the district, Mr. Collins, who had been teaching for 33 years, was able to retire with a $58,000 settlement and his teaching certificate intact.

    A bit of the old boys' network at work here -- the man is rehired and allowed to retire, yet the woman is fired?

    Pa. Teachers Rehired After Admitting to Having Sex in School, Accusations of Harrasment


    28 Aug 2014

    Angela DiBattista, a fourth grade teacher who lost her job in 2011 after admitting to having sexual relations in the early 2000s with another fourth grade teacher, Patrick Collins, also under investigation at the time, was reinstated for the school year that starts next week. She was fired being charged with “immorality” after the two admitted to having sex between six and eight times at the school after hours.


    Collins was fired in 2005 on charges of harassment of DiBattista and violating school policy, but was “absolved,” reinstated and able to retire in 2006. DiBattista’s attorneys maintained she had been given immunity for testifying against Collins, something a court agreed with. An appeals court then overturned her firing.
