High school teacher resigns over relationship with 18-year-old student

TAMPA — A social studies teacher at Riverview High School resigned this week after admitting to an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student, school district officials said Thursday.

Chung Ramos, 29, was involved with an 18-year-old senior, said Linda Cobbe, a spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County school district.

Cobbe did not know how long the relationship had been going on. Both Ramos and the student admitted to it, she said.

The district consulted the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. "They did not choose to get involved," Cobbe said, presumably because the student was an adult.

Ramos joined the school district in 2004. She could not be reached for comment Thursday.
