teach2TACOMA — The 24-year-old female teacher accused of sexual activity with two students at Lincoln High School and sending a nude pic to another  resigned from her teaching position and has surrendered her state teaching certificate, the Tacoma News Tribune reported.

Meredith Powell was arrested last week on three charges of child rape and one count of communication with a minor for immoral purposes. She pleaded not guilty to the charges in court, and was released.

Thursday, Powell surrendered her state teaching certificate and resigned from her post. She will not be able to teach again in Washington state without the certificate.

Powell’s case drew international attention, as well as an online Facebook Page from Lincoln High School students supporting their former teacher.
