Gingervitis?

SCCZEN_280313HOSSPLWHITE2_460x230A teacher who is trouble for various reasons also has developed a mystery illness.

A teacher from an exclusive Auckland school is subject to a Teachers Council investigation, understood to be over a mystery illness and claims she behaved inappropriately with a student.

Jacqueline White, known as Jackie, left her job as senior college headmistress of Pinehurst School in December after spending five months on sick leave because of a serious illness.

She also worked briefly at the beginning of this term as deputy principal at Avondale College before resigning through ill-health. 

The Herald on Sunday has confirmed White is subject to a Teachers Council disciplinary tribunal investigation after parents complained.

“This case is currently before the complaints assessment committee,” council director Dr Peter Lind said.

Pinehurst School executive principal Sherida Penman Walters said White was appointed to Pinehurst in November 2009.

“She came to us with excellent references from her previous schools, which were St Peter’s College and ACG Senior College. Last year in July, Ms White informed us of a serious illness and was given extended leave.

I think she may have gingervitis:

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
