TOLEDO (WTOL) - Two Whitmer teachers have been suspended with pay while the school investigates whether they had sex with female students.

Mat Brueggemann and John Shook are social studies teachers who are accused of waiting until girls turned 18 so they could have sexual relationships with them. The school wants to know if they also had sexual relationships with girls while the girls were still Whitmer students.

Brueggemann is one of the freshman football coaches and a social studies teacher. Shook teaches WWII to seniors and Government to juniors.

News 11 spoke with a former student who says she had the opportunity to take classes taught by both teachers and opted out because of what she calls their "bad reputation."

Both teachers face a school hearing on the matter Oct. 9.
