During the 2007-2008 school year, Ms. Kimble was employed as a cook and cheerleading coach at a high school. In December 2007, she took the cheerleaders on an overnight Christmas party held in a cabin located outside the county. The trip was not approved as was required by district policy. When administration learned about the trip, Ms. Kimble was instructed that all future out-of-county trips must have prior approval.
The following year, Ms. Kimble worked as a cook at an elementary school and as the cheerleading coach at the same high school at which she had coached the prior year. In December 2008, Ms. Kimble took the cheerleaders to the same cabin for another overnight Christmas party. Ms. Kimble and a parent went as “chaperones” but Ms. Kimble did not seek or obtain approval for the trip.
During the party, Ms. Kimble was photographed in the hot tub, surrounded by several female cheerleaders. Although Ms. Kimble was clothed, most of the girls were topless. All of the girls were minors.
