An elementary school principal, a gym teacher, and a third grade teacher have all resigned after a years-long affair came to light, sending shock waves through the small-town community in which they worked.
Media attention is coming down on Banks County Elementary School in the small city of Homer, Georgia this week. That rural town is the focus of serious fallout after a major investigation by the county’s Board of Education into an apparent affair involving two employees at the school.

According to Atlanta-based WSB-TV, Banks County Elementary School principal Dr. Dana Simmons and physical education teacher Dylan Charles engaged in a “years-long” sexual affair. The two reportedly even had sex at the school where they worked. And, that affair supposedly came about with the full knowledge and apparent blessing (!) of Dylan’s wife Kelsey Charles, who was a third grade teacher at the institution! WTF?!?!
The affair first came to light in its own shocking way. Late last year, Simmons accused Charles of accessing “secret school district information” by having a source reporting to him from county school board meetings or by possibly “bugging her office,” per the New York Post. Mad at that accusation, Charles went to school district officials and revealed the affair he’d been having with Simmons. He told them the two had sex both off campus and on the grounds of the elementary school. At first, Simmons denied the affair, but the school board launched a full investigation.
