The official charge against Darren Snieszko, 25, of St. Petersburg, is interference with custody, a felony.
According to an arrest affidavit, Snieszko encouraged a 16-year-old girl attending Gibbs High to go on what he called a field trip to Lowry Park Zoo, but there were no other students or teachers involved with the trip, the affidavit states.
Snieszko paid for the girl's admission with his Pinellas County teacher's discount card, said St. Petersburg police spokesman Bill Proffitt. The spokesman characterized the outing as a date.
He also sent the 16-year-old girl a variety of romantic messages, using MySpace, cell phone text messages, and e-mail messages, Proffitt said.
The girl and her mother went to the police station April 11 to complain. Another female student at the school also is claiming Snieszko took her on a trip, but Snieszko has not been charged in that incident, Proffitt said.

These past years you mean. Sooner enough, you won't need a degree to have a career in teaching. It's becoming less and less professional. Not trying to take a shot at your profession, you may be very dedicated with your profession.

But from my experiences, graduating in a public High School a few years back; I've seen and been in courses with a handful of miserable, "doesn't give a damn", psychotic teachers. But again, not all of them are like that; I've also had a handful of teachers that I would consider as a hero in which I've learned alot from them.

I read a while back about teachers complaining about their salaries. Perhaps if more of them acted like professional employees, the salaries would be different.
