School officials in Ponte Verde Beach Florida have suspended a female gym teacher without pay for allegedly engaging in inappropriate communications with at least three students.

Dionne Younce, who taught physical education at Allen D Nease High School, will remain suspended following the results of an investigation by authorities.

According to the St. Johns County School District officials, Younce is accused of sexual misconduct with at least three male students, who told investigators that they all received texts and nude photos from the 28-year-old teacher.

One of the students involved told investigators that he had a relationship with Younce, which he said initially started as subtle flirtation on the phone, but quickly led to ‘sexual snapping’, which involved the two sending nude pictures to each other on Snapchat.

A report also lists another four students and two assistant principals, but their names were redacted.

The St.Johns Sheriff’s office started investigating the teacher after receiving information regarding “sexually inappropriate conversations” occurring between a teacher and a student.”

Cmdr. Chuck Mulligan, a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office said the case was transferred over to the Special Victims Unit, who are conducting interviews and will determine if Younce committed any crimes.

Younce, who is the coach of the girls weightlifting team, could face second-degree felony charges of “lewd or lascivious act upon a child.” She was recently hired at the school and was still in her probationary period.
