Teacher Admits to Inappropriate Contact with Student



Williamsville, NY (WBEN) An art teacher is stepping down from her job after a guilty plea to endangering the welfare of a child.

49 year old Donna Sleap admitted to inappropriate contact with a 13 year old boy that was caught on surveillance video.

Sleap was a teacher at Casey Middle School. Surrendering her teaching license was a part of her guilty plea.

“As educators, we are advocates for students, their safety and achievement and can expect to be held to high standards of conduct at all times," said Superintendent Scott Martzloff in a statement.  "The District would like to thank Assistant District Attorney Rosanne Johnson and her team as well as the Amherst Police Department for bringing this matter to closure.” 


She faces a year in jail when she is sentenced on July 30th.
