State to investigate teacher accused in affair

ATLANTA (AP) - A Georgia licensing board will investigate claims that a Shiloh High School Teacher of the Year accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student violated the Code of Ethics for Educators.

Twenty-nine-year-old Kennon Aampay Hall is accused of having a six-month sexual relationship with a Gwinnett County football player who came to her for homework help. Authorities say the affair included trysts in a classroom.

Hall could lose her teaching certificate if found guilty of professional misconduct.

The Gwinnett County Public Schools police force is still investigating Hall, who resigned citing medical reasons during a human resources investigation into her conduct. The Associated Press could not locate a phone number for Hall Thursday evening.
