Albany-- A veteran Albany school teacher is off the job, accused of having an improper relationship with a student.

Kitty Woodyard taught math at Monroe Comprehensive High School for 22 years. A 17-year-old student's mother found e-mails between the teacher and her son that suggested an inappropriate relationship.

The school system suspended Woodyard without pay. She then decided to resign on Friday. School system attorney Tommy Coleman says there's no proof of a sexual relationship, but there is evidence of kissing and touching between the two.

"There was a complaint filed by the student's parents and the only evidence of course that we have are these inappropriate emails and some admission of inappropriate conduct," says Coleman.

The school system will inform DFACS, the District Attorney and the The Georgia Professional Standards Commission of its investigation. Woodyard will not be allowed to work in any Dougherty County school and she could lose certification to teach in any school system.
