The messages allegedly originated from Righetti High School biology teacher Michelle Hill’s phone. The unnamed parent discovered the text messages Sunday night on his son’s phone and contacted KSBY News.
“For the most part, we are little concerned,” said Sergio Flores, the assistant superintendent of human resources with the Santa Maria Joint Union High School District to KSBY.
The following text messages are allegedly between Hill and the unnamed student.
Student: Yea. i want to be able to have my fun still and f*** around whenever i want and not worry about who will get hurt
Hill: me too but i’m kinda stuck. =) u need to do what your heart tells u to do.
Student: my heart says follow your penis. . . :)
Hill: Then that’s what u should do right now =) eventually your heart will tell u something different. but for now f*** yea! Follow your penis!!
“Wow! Oh my gosh,” said Andrea Keblesh to KSBY. “She’s married to her husband who’s a firefighter and she has two great kids.”
In this message the conversation refers to another student.
Hill: I was dreaming about him again last night. Maybe it was wishful thinking but I kept thinking about waking up with him and being able to sleep next to him.
Student: that would be great if it happened. and you know (he) feels the same
Hill: I hope he does but it never seems to come together where he’s able to come over. Except that first night.
These next texts involve smoking and alcohol.
Hill: Let’s go to your moms. . .by way of a store. =) What do you think?
Student: Yup cuz we can smoke there and get free food.
This one allegedly catches her offering the student alcohol.
Hill asks: Got any requests from liquor store?
Student: u already have malibu. . .maybe jager if u wanna get fun tonight.
“Whether or not these messages were sent by this particular teacher, we’re not sure,” Flores said. “We’re talking to students and their parents. We’ll be very careful to make sure we include everybody.”
The district placed Hill on administrative leave Monday. Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputies are conducting a criminal investigation.
