HOUSTON - Counselors will be on hand at a Spring Branch middle school Thursday after a teacher was fired over an inappropriate relationship with one of her students..

Kathryn "Camille" Murray, an eighth-grade teacher at Memorial Middle School, was fired Wednesday, according to a statement from Spring Branch ISD Superintendent Duncan F. Klussmann.

Klussmann said Murray was removed from the classroom after allegations were reported on Feb. 13. Details of the allegations were not released.

More than not guilty, she is innocent!

Strange how after all of the teacher/student relationship stories over the years and this woman couldn’t practice a little self control? With an 8th grader!?

I just can’t understand the mentality of anyone who could be interested, sexually, in a child.

I think the point of all the stories is to create a social consensus that there’s no reason she should control herself, because there’s nothing wrong with an adult woman’s screwing an 8th-grade boy. They’re both just animals with overwhelming drives, and anyone who objects is a self-righteous prude.

Worst part is she LOOKS like a trustworthy, sweet, kind and innocent middle school teacher. I’ll bet she was popular with the parents. (in all ways)

Does it say anywhere in the story that the student was a boy?

These acts between teachers and students are absolutely no different from the same acts between clergy and children.

The only difference is that the media responds to one event with efforts to humiliate and shut down the institution and responds to the other events with silence on the institution, followed by requests for more money for teachers unions.

excuse me; everyone’s guilty until proven innocent! Once accused, guilt is presumed.

Children's Protective Services, Spring Branch ISD police, and the State Board for Educator Certification are also investigating.

Murray has not been charged.

From the video:

This allegation, if true...

Guess it will soon become apparent what really happened.

She is clearly not guilty, though she has proven herself far from innocent...

I’ll wait until there’s more information on this. Before everyone’s kneejerk reaction, I’ve seen how schools and cops can twist and totally make up bs charges. It won’t matter if the teacher is 100% innocent, her life is ruined and she’ll never be able to teach or work with children again.

Here .. if she's beautiful and/or hot .. we deem her, "Not Guilty"

Yeah, it's very sexist, chauvinist and any other ist you want to lay on us.

A public school teacher was fired...

Similar stories indicate that the burden of proof for firing a public school teacher is greater than that to get a conviction in these cases.

These cases always read, “Teacher suspended after...”

I've often wondered why that is. And I'd almost bet money that if some of those cases you refer to were Baptist instead of Catholic, you'd see a different type of coverage...

We had a guy in our Eight grade class who was only there when he wasn’t in Jail. He had to be 18.

I doubt that is the case here. Spring is a highly rated school district.

Not really, one is presumed guilty the minute he is charged, and the system works to process the “guilty,” rather than to determine guilt.

Isn’t this the same ISD where it was reported here the other day, the obamunist teachers were brain-washing their charges into the obama-jugend?

You’re right. The accuser could be a crazy, out of control kid who is out for revenge. It happens.

If it had not been a boy, we would have never heard about the case.

More double standard reporting....

If the perp was a man the headline would contain the words "molestation" or "statutory rape".

But since it's a chick it's merely an "inappropriate relationship."

Yes, she looks like a sweet and innocent middle-school teacher. The problem is she has grown up in a sex-obsessed culture in which she was very likely having sex when she was in the eighth grade and sees nothing wrong with sex between any two (or more) people. This is precisely what people were predicting about fifty or so years ago when the “pill” separated sex from consequences and forty years ago when the Supreme Court separated pregnancy from consequences (in this life).

When I was in the eighth grade (1962-1963) people like her were called sluts. Maybe one woman in a hundred earned that appellation. Fast forward fifty years: You cannot even use the term slut because the sluts who appear to be in the vast majority do not want to be reminded of good vs evil, of morality and immorality, of right vs wrong, etc.

Such people mistake license for liberty.

The victim did not report it, another faculty member did.
