TEMPLE, TX — A former Temple ISD teacher was indicted after a report of a potential improper relationship between a teacher and students at Temple High School in April.

On Wednesday, 35-year-old Seanna Williams was indicted after the case was presented to the Grand Jury, who handed down indictments for improper relationship between educator and student.

Williams was later located and placed under arrest for the offense on Wednesday.

The school district concluded its own investigation into the incident on April 11.

According to the district, they accepted the resignation of the employee effective immediately and, as required by law, they will be notifying the State Board for Educator Certification of the situation.

They filed a report with the Texas Education Agency staff.

“Simply put, Temple ISD has no tolerance for educator misconduct,” said Bobby Ott, Superintendent of Temple ISD. “Student safety is job one. I want to commend the staff for a swift and thorough investigative process.”
