    Mercury News: Palo Alto: Castilleja teacher accused of sexual misconduct (Jan 10 2014)

    An English teacher at Castilleja School in Palo Alto has resigned amidst allegations that she engaged in sexual misconduct with two students at schools in Tennessee and Texas in the 1980s. The students contacted Castilleja, a private school for girls in grades 6-12, about two months ago, said spokeswoman Dana Sundblad. As soon as the school learned of the "inappropriate relationships," the teacher was placed on administrative leave and an investigation was launched. The teacher denied the allegations and resigned, according to a letter Head of School Nanci Kauffman recently sent to family and alumnae ... Officials at Baylor and Hockaday confirmed that former students had made allegations of sexual misconduct against the teacher.
