FLORESVILLE -- A teacher’s aide with the Floresville Independent School District (ISD) has been fired after allegations surfaced that she was taking money from the district, according to Superintendent Jerry Lee Hunkapiller.

Rebecca Lyn Morin, 39, of Floresville, was arrested April 19 by Floresville ISD Police Chief Brenda Ullevig and charged with theft of property worth more than $1,500, but less than $20,000. According to Wilson County Jail records, she was released after posting $20,000 bond, pending consideration of her case by a grand jury.

“The money taken will be reimbursed in full to the district,” Hunkapiller said in a press release. “The district takes very seriously its responsibility to protect the taxpayer dollars that are entrusted to us. We will not tolerate such conduct and we will prosecute to the fullest extent under the law.”

In a separate matter, Ullevig is investigating allegations of an inappropriate relationship between a Floresville High School student and a teacher/coach, which allegedly occurred in spring 2011. Hunkapiller said in a press release that Floresville ISD Athletic Director John Baker approached district officials April 19, after receiving information of the alleged indiscretion.

Ullevig is coordinating with officials from the 81st Judicial District Attorney’s Office in the probe and as of April 30, Floresville ISD is unable to confirm that a physical relationship occurred between the teacher and student. The teacher did, however, resign April 27.

The funny thing is all coaches and director of personnel have all retired or leaving the district this year that have anything to do with this. Not to mention the student has just as much to blame for participating in such an ... More ›

Baker was a horrible coach 20+ years ago when I was in high school. I cant believe he has lasted this long.

Baker is a horrible coach but not sure if he should be blamed for what went on with one of his coaches and a student. As the athletic director, he needs to have a better handle on his coaches but I do realize he can't watch ... More ›

It is time to get rid of the athletic director and the head football coach, or are they the same person?

This does NOT surprise me a bit!! FISD has a long history of allowing inappropriate activities to happen WITHOUT repercussion for the adult/coach! The student can be degraded without cause, BUT the adult NEVER has to validate ... More ›

This is expected because the high school principal never goes to the games to see the staff interact with the students. Coaches scream at the kids and even curse without repercussion. The head football coach is the worst. The ... More ›

The citizens have had enough of this corruption. If you have an official's position with this county - school or city govenment - you will be brought to justice - it is a matter of time. If you know about this sort of ... More ›
