Katie Snyder, a Social Studies teacher and track coach at Old Mill High School in Millersville, has been relieved of her duties and reassigned pending an investigation according to school officials. In a letter sent home this afternoon, Principal James Todd stated that the teacher’s leave would be indefinite and they were working to arrange long term substitutes to take over her duties. This comes on the heels of another incident at the school where a former student and an adult were arrested for trespassing and weapons violations.

I am writing today to let you know about a change in our teaching staff and leadership in several programs. Social studies teacher and assistant track coach Kate Snyder has been reassigned by  the school system and will be away from our school indefinitely. 

A substitute teacher is currently in place for Ms. Snyder’s academic classes, and we will  continue to consult with the Office of Investigations and other school system administrators as to  whether we need to find a long-term replacement for Ms. Snyder. In addition, Ms. Snyder has  also been relieved of her duties as assistant track coach, Student Government Association  advisor, and senior class advisor while this investigation is under way. We will make the  necessary adjustments to ensure that those groups continue their activities in Ms. Snyder’s  absence.

While the school will not release any details citing that the investigation is a “personnel matter”, Eye On Annapolis has received information surrounding the allegations which we are attempting to confirm, however, it is safe to say that the incident revolves around inappropriate behavior.

While the announcement came from the school today, Twitter began seeing conversations about it as early as Wednesday when students began to suspect the teacher was arrested.

As the news spread, Twitter began to light up this afternoon.

Snyder appeared to be well liked among students.

Yet others seemed not surprised.

This tweet was posted of the teacher partying. It is unknown if the others in the photos are students.

    I am a student currently attending Old mill high school. I will not post my name for obvious reasons all I can say is I had ms.snyder and she is not a good teacher she is incredibly racist favoring the African-Americans which I don’t understand. These allegations don’t surprise me at all because she had a thing for football players especially of an African-American nature and the people that so call support ms.snyder you should go look at their other tweets because some of them were being sarcastic.

    first of all let me tell you a couple of three things, I AM NOT DEFENDING MS SNYDER. This article mis qouted me and several other people. In my tweet I was being sarcastic, and went on to make several jokes about her behavior. So, in no way, shape or form do I “support” her.
