The Professional Standards Commission recommended that Petitioner’s teaching certificate be revoked after several female students reported that he made comments of a sexual nature to them. Petitioner’s conduct, while very inappropriate and unprofessional, fell short of the egregiousness that would warrant revocation. Accordingly, the Court recommended a one-year suspension, rather than a revocation, of Petitioner’s teaching certificate.
