Police arrested Andree, 24, on Monday for allegedly having sex with an underage student and for solicitation of a minor. Andree was a chemistry teacher and girls’ swim coach at Morro Bay High School.

One of the two alleged victims in the case, a student under the age of 18, told the Tribune she participated in sexually explicit message exchanges with Andree after he began expressing romantic interest in her. The messaging lasted for more than a month, but their relationship never became physical, the student said.

In September, her conversations with Andree began to become more flirtatious, and he eventually made it clear he had deep feelings for her, she said. Through mid-October, Andree and she talked in a romantic manner, exchanging sexually explicit messages.

The student came froward with a written statement to the high school’s interim principal, Jeff Cadwallader, and was interviewed by the school resource officer. She has been in regular contact with investigators and hopes to provide help in any criminal case against Andree, the student said.

The teen declined to comment on allegations involving Andree having sex with another student.

A 2014 San Luis Obispo High School graduate, Andree began working at Morro Bay High School on Aug. 13, 2019. He resigned on Jan. 18.

Morro Bay police officers arrested Andree following a three-week investigation. Andree was booked in the San Luis Obispo County Jail and is currently out of custody.

Don’t be so quick on believing Tyler’s ‘teaching’ career is over. There has been several public cases (some close to this area) where a teacher has been found to have committed a “no-no” at one school; and then gets hired at another school. Given the ‘you-pat-my-back – I’ll-pat-yours’ attitude between school districts – watch out.

As we continue to be encouraged to universally beatify teachers let us keep in mind that there are a lot of bad ones out there and it is an easy job to get. Like most, I had fantastic teachers who could have made a helluva lot more in the private sector but were called to teaching, and then the “those who can’t do, teach” variety looking for salary, benefits and a retirement they could not earn elsewhere.

So he was having sex with one student while sexting and trying to prey on another?

So the one he was having sex with didn’t complain but the one he was grooming to have sex with did!

So it’s evident this is a pattern of behavior not just a incident!!

Sex crimes stack up, so lot’s of jail time, plus sex offender registration!!!

Look what happened to that Fire Captain from Cayucos, sentenced to something like 167 years!!!!

Another reason to home school kids, which in addition, is a great way to defund public education and the selfish teacher unions.

What a scumbag and an idiot. Might as well have posted those texts on the front page of the tribune. The only question remaining is How many more were there?

I’m sure he got the job because his dad is head of the athletics dept. What did he know??

Principal gone….Auto Shop/ Girls volleyball teacher gone…Now they need to finish cleaning house. How the Ag. teacher is still there with her years of inappropriate behavior with male students is beyond understanding. Guess it’s just a fine line.

Well put a fork in Tyler he’s done and the school system will be handing out some large checks to the victims .Tyler has absolutely no feasible defense to the charges or lawsuits .The texting is 100 percent solid evidence .The sex with the minor his attorney can defend him till he’s blue in the face ,won’t even faze the sex charges
