Parents speak about Chelsea High teacher/coach charged with sexual contact with student

Posted: Updated:
CHELSEA - AL -
57 year old Donald Teague is charged with "having sexual contact with a student, under the age of 19."
Teague has been a social studies teacher and is one of the coaches for volleyball and basketball. He was indicted today by a grand jury. The victim - a female student at Chelsea High School. Parents say it's frightening.
"She was shocked," Tamala Savage, a parent said. "It concerns her and her classmates that you have someone that you really don't know who these people are."
We spoke with a Chelsea parent - whose daughter was coached by Teague. She told us, knowing he spent so  much time around her daughter - is concerning.  
"With volleyball it's all Summer, it's car washes, it's fund raisers, it's everything and you entrust these coaches with your children," Savage said.

The allegations that Teague had sexual contact with a student came out March 18th - through a report from the school resource officer.  Teague has been on leave since then.  

Teague is from the North Shelby County area. He's is being held under a $30,000 bond.  
Parents said after three other Shelby County school employees were arrested in two years - they're hoping for a tighter screening process.

"It concerns me that it's occurring but it's occurring in today's society," John Freeman, a grandparent said. "It seems like every time you turn around there is a teacher being arrested for sexual misconduct in school."
