According to Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman, and Lower Providence Police Chief Francis Caroll, a Methacton High School teacher has been arrested for Endagering the Welfare of Child, Corruption of Minors, Possession of Child Pornography and related offenses.

Sean Michael McCullough, a current high school English teacher at Methacton School District, allegedly promoted and maintained a sexual relationship with one of his minor female students, during the 2009 and 2010 school years.

The report states that McCullough was the female student's teacher during her freshman through senior years in high school. The sexually inappropriate relationship began during her senior year, while McCullough was her Gifted Seminar teacher.

Furthermore, the report states that McCullough's inappropriate relationship with his student included sexually explicit Facebook communications, e-mails, the exchange of nude photos, and inappropriate sexual contact.

In a statement to police, McCullough admitted to having an inappropriate sexual relationship with the victim while she was still a minor, authorities said.

We also had a 1-on-1 meeting with him, when he referred to the fact that there were many "SPA girls" at Methacton. SPA = Smart, Pretty and Athletic. That comment seems a whole lot creepier now than it did then...

To j123 - I'd question your so called "Great Education" from Methacton if you have to use the "F Bomb" twice in such a short paragraph - guess you missed the English classes.

what a complete scumbag! How does our judical system give him only 3-23 months, they are a disgrace! I don't care if she says she loved him, he as an adult and teacher should have morals and common sense that is a no no. I hope he rots in jail during his time here and bubba runs into him. Have fun in jail you scumbag.
