Orlando Sentinel reports on another “Hot for Teacher” incident which we are calling the “Seminole High Lesbian Edition.” It involves high school math teacher Ruen Beane, 30 years of age, and her alleged inappropriate behavior towards 4 female students.
A Seminole High School teacher has been placed on paid leave after allegations by four female students that she touched and fondled them, made suggestive comments and asked them to look at pictures of nude women on her classroom computer. Sanford police are investigating the students’ complaints against Ruen Marie Beane, 30, a math teacher at the school. Seminole school district officials said they are looking into the allegations as well.
Ruen Beane is also a cheerleading coach and, apparently, a photographer. From her page at One Model Place (since taken down):
Sensual Images: Looking to portray images of a sensual images, from G rated (like showing a hand giving a rose) to more physically sensual like the intertwining of a man and a woman.
Update – 2010
Here’s what we know, or what we think we know. Apparently, the investigation concluded that Beane did nothing wrong (see a commenter’s entry below). It’s practically impossible to find any follow-up stories in the local media, which is par for the course. However, a name search comes up a LinkedIn profile suggesting that Ruen Beane is now Vice President at AZS Consulting, Inc, located in Jacksonville, FL. Her past jobs include “Instructor at Seminole County School Board and Instructor at Polk County School Board” which fits, and her photo looks like her.
AZS Consulting does energy rating for Florida residential and commercial organizations. If Beane truly was innocent then we are glad she was able to move onto another job (hey, VP of a small company in the construction industry is pretty good!). Not much else on Ruen but we dug up these photos:
We think this one may be her as well, but we’re not totally 100% on that:
