COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A former Airport High School administrator who was dismissed from her job after having an “unprofessional” relationship with a student waived her right to a hearing last month, effectively giving up her ability to teach in the state of South Carolina.

Dawn Diimmler informed the South Carolina Department of Education through legal representation on March 13 that she did not want a hearing and entered into “a Consent Order of Permanent Voluntary Surrender of her educator certificate 182862, effective April 9, 2019.”

Her South Carolina educator license was suspended in February 2018 after “unprofessional conduct with a student” was revealed. Diimmler was charged in both Richand and Lexington counties in connection to those allegations.

After the Cayce Department of Public Safety and the Columbia Police Department launched investigations into Diimmler, the Lexington Two moved quickly to terminate Diimmler’s employment after an investigation found she left a voicemail on the student’s mother’s phone claiming she was in love with the student.

Diimmler had been an employee with the school district since 2012.
