High school teacher resigns over sex with student

A Palm Beach Central High School reading teacher who admitted to having a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old student resigned hours before the Palm Beach County School Board was scheduled to vote on whether to fire her, according to district officials.

Susan Keppers, 29, resigned on Wednesday. According to an investigative report, the mother of the 11th-grade student complained to school officials after she found Keppers in her son's bed one day.

The student told investigators he met Keppers through his 21-year-old brother. He said they went to clubs together and played video games.

Both the student and Keppers admitted that they had a sexual relationship, though they said they did not have sex until after the student turned 18 and no contact occurred at the school.
