Millbrook Middle School teacher resigns after being put on administrative leave

The Millbrook Middle School seventh-grade teacher who was placed on adminitrative leave pending an investigation by the Elmore County Board of Education, Alabama Department of Human Resources and Millbrook police resigned on Thursday.

During an emergency called meeting of the Elmore County Board of Education, the board unanimously accepted the resignation of language arts teacher Michelle Beisel.

Beisel had been employed as a teacher at Millbrook Middle School for 14 years.

Police, DHR nor board employees would say what led to the investigation.

A substitute teacher has been put in place since Beisel was put on administrative leave on Aug. 11.

“We will look to fill that position, while the sub remains. But we will work as quickly as possible so there will not be an interruption in instruction,” Elmore County Schools Superintendent Dr. Jeff Langham said.

In terms of the investigation by the board of education, Langham said he would consider the matter closed following the resignation.

“We we certainly be cooperative with DHR and the Millbrook police should they need any information,” Langham said.

    This is utterly and completely disgusting. This teacher and woman has not only been there for me for years when I was going through absolute hell, but she also has been there for her students, IN THE APPROPRIATE MANOR. I understand that she resigned, and yes it’s none of my business, but as I see rumors on Facebook being stirred around about such a wonderful person, I’m going to defend the person who’s IN THE RIGHT within the situation. Ask her past students and even the parents, Michelle Beisel has never done wrong.
