Lekeshia Jones, 34, a former business teacher at Myers Middle School in Savannah, Georgia, was fired by the Savannah-Chatham school board after it was discovered that several of her students accessed nude selfies she saved in her cell-phone, reports SavannahNow.com.
The formal reasons for her dismissal were “being irresponsible with her phone, for not properly handling or reporting the incident and for insubordination in the weeks that followed.”
“Back home [Natchez, Miss.] my family is prominent,” she said. “I’m the Natchez Indians [Mardis Gras Ball] Queen. Nothing like this has ever happened to me.”
What exactly happened remains unclear.

District officials testified Jones had given the students her cellphone password to call home, then left the phone unattended. They also said she did not report the incident but asked students to text the social media chatter back to her so she could track down the culprits on her own.
When district officials found out about it and removed Jones from Myers pending termination, they said she failed to report to work for three weeks. During that time they say Jones also forged a 2015 teaching contract offer in order to secure a loan.
When she finally resumed work at DeRenne Middle, she left her phone unattended a second time, and it was taken by yet another student.
