In Modesto, California, an Enochs High School business and computer sciences teacher, James Hooker, has left his family and his job for his former student and current high school senior, Jordan Powers.
Hooker, 41, met Powers, 18, when she was a freshman at Enochs. This year, Jordan was a student in one of Hooker’s classes until his suspension on February 3rd, and then his resignation on the 22nd. After Hooker left his position, the couple moved into an apartment in Modesto together. James Hooker left his wife and children to be with Powers.
Jordan’s mother, Tammy Powers, is openly against the relationship. Tammy Powers contacted local detectives after becoming suspicious of how close her daughter had become to Hooker over the past couple of months. The police’s investigation led to Hooker’s suspension in the beginning of February.
Detectives are still investigating the pair to determine if any laws were broken and if the relationship started before Jordan’s 18th birthday this past fall. According to Tammy Powers, nearly 8,000 texts have been exchanged between her daughter and Hooker since last summer.
