Former Orange Co. teacher loses certificate after allegations she made sex comments



ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - A former Orange County middle-school teacher has been banned from returning to a Florida public school classroom after some of her students said she made graphic sexual comments.

Students said the eighth-grade teacher actually asked students if they'd have sex with her, and that's just one of the things she's accused of.

Lenise Faulk resigned from Wolf Lake Middle School in Apopka, after just one year on the job.

She has turned in her teaching certificate and apparently has no plans to fight the state on the accusations.

Faulk was a gym teacher at Wolf Lake.

School officials said it was a year full of troubling, sexually charged behavior.

"Any time you see information like this, it concerns you," said Chris Decule, father of a seventh-grade girl, after reading some of the comments attributed to Faulk.

WFTV's Kenneth Craig obtained a document permanently revoking Faulk's teaching certificate.

According to the paperwork, in May of 2011 Faulk showed eighth graders a picture of herself in a bathing suit and in explicit language asked if the students if she was naked would they have sex with her. And, would they have sex with her if she was swinging from a rope, naked.

Initially, Faulk was suspended from her job, but then quickly resigned.

"She shouldn't be allowed around children if she's going to do that kind of stuff there. That's highly inappropriate," said parent Gmerice Lafayette.

The documents said the teacher also called one young student insulting names, used profanity and would join her students in conversations about sex.

"I'm shocked. Honestly, I can't imagine somebody doing that," said Lafayette.

Faulk didn't respond to Craig's offer to let her tell her side
