Groveland teacher, dean accused of hooking up in closet, officials say

Lake County superintendent recommends both be fired


GROVELAND, Fla. – Two Lake County educators are facing termination after officials said they were found together in a classroom closet.

The incident was reported last month at Groveland Elementary School after students had gone home for the day, officials said.

According to investigators, the principal of Groveland Elementary said she found the school's instructional dean, Alan Rosier, 56, and first-grade teacher, Katie Lassen, 34, making out inside a classroom closet. 

The Lake County superintendent has recommended that the dean and teacher be fired. 

Rosier and Lassen are appealing the superintendent's recommendation.
