Greater Victoria teacher loses certificate after sexting former student

A former Greater Victoria school district teacher will not teach again in B.C. after sending inappropriate messages to a female student via text and Twitter.

Anthony Albert Drolet was teaching at a high school in May 2013 when he sent the student, who had graduated the year before, several messages of a sexual nature over the span of about three weeks, according to an agreement reached between him and the B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation.

The messages included references to them having sex, the agreement said.

In June 2013, Drolet called in sick but had actually gone to a stag party in Seattle. While there, he sent more inappropriate messages to the girl, the agreement said.

Drolet, who received his teaching certificate in 2008, was terminated by the school district in August 2013. He relinquished his certificate of qualification in October 2014.

The agreement between Drolet and the commissioner says “Drolet admits that the conduct described … constitutes professional misconduct and conduct unbecoming” and is contrary to the standards set out for educators.
