Today’s bad teacher is Nichole Noel Thiel of Sandpoint, Idaho. The former Lake Pend Oreille School educator has been charged with felony sexual battery after allegedly having sex with a student between the ages of 16 and 17.

Reportedly, the pair engaged in the encounter at a condominium in December of 2015. At the time, Thiel was 46 years old. Apparently, the whole thing got started when the culinary arts student was in some sort of distress. He hugged her to provide some comfort and she kissed him on the cheek. After that, they became communicating through an app on their phones which, eventually, culminated in sexual intercourse.
The investigation began after the alleged victim revealed the details of the encounter to a school counselor in December of 2016. The now 48-year-old declined to be questioned by police after consulting with her lawyer, Michael G. Palmer. Initially, officials sought a statutory rape charge but, after gathering more information, went with sexual battery. If convicted, Thiel could face up to 25 years in prison.
She hasn’t worked for Lake Pend Oreille School District since July of 2016. She had been working at a Kootenai County charter school but was placed on leave last month.
What is up with all of these teachers having sex with students? Don’t they see how badly this goes for those who have already been arrested or are they hoping to end up like Mary Kay Letourneau? She had sex with her 12-year-old student, had two of his babies, went to jail, and married him after she was released. Life goals, right?
Anyways, hit the right arrow to see more of her…
