[UPDATE] A Voorheesville School Teacher Is Accused Of Biting A Student

Updated on april 18 at 9:15 a.m.

We told you about the Voorheesville Elementary School teacher that was charged with biting a student back in December 2011. WNYT has let us know that Michael Guerette has had the charges against him dropped. The judge for this case told him as long as he didn’t get into legal trouble, the charges will be completely dismissed. Hopefully this man can get his life back, and return to his job.


50-year-old Michael Guerette, who coaches boys JV soccer and is a fifth grade teacher, was arm wrestling a male student when he allegedly bit a student on the forearm.

A female student reached over to help the male and that’s when Guerette allegedly bit her. In a story from YNN, the bite marks turned into bruising and could still be seen after 48 hours when she was examined by school officials.

Guerette has been charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child. That’s a misdemeanor. He has been released on an appearance ticket.

Parents of the Voorheesville School District have been notified of the situation by a letter on their website. The Albany County Sheriff’s Department is still investigating what happened, and to see if he made other unprofessional comments of inappropriate behavior.
