Teacher Charged With Stealing

An English teacher from North Star School district was charged with stealing from a student fund.
BOSWELL, SOMERSET COUNTY--- An English teacher from North Star School district was charged with stealing from a student fund.

“The fund was for a club similar to a “pep club,” said Dr. Shawn Kovac, North Star Superintendent.

Melissa Ann Gardner was charged by State Police for allegedly stealing $120 from the fund that was in a locked closet.  According to the complaint it was caught on a surveillance camera.

“This is very concerning that these charges have been brought against one of our own,” said Kovac.

Gardner was a teacher at the school for more than 20 years.  Kovac could not comment on whether or not she is still teaching because it’s a personnel issue.

Gardner will have a hearing in June.
