A former Midland Secondary School teacher and coach is facing an August discipline hearing to see if he’s crossed the line.
Kevin Mark Morphet retired from teaching as of June 2021 but started his career in 2003, according to the Ontario College of Teachers.
He is accused of professional misconduct after alleged incidents were reported from 2017 to 2019.
In 2012, he was recognized by the school with the Jeff Attwood Coaching Excellence Award.
According to the college, it is alleged he engaged in inappropriate physical contact and/or touching of a sexual nature with one or more students at the school.
The college claims he played with the hair of one or more female students and touched, massaged or caressed the shoulders, thighs, waist, buttocks, back and knees of one or more female students, including the bra strap area and inside the back waistband of leggings.
A hearing will also discuss if he hugged female students, kissed a female student on the forehead, picked up a female student and put her over his shoulders and grabbed the hand of a female student.
The claims include information that Morphet allegedly made statements like “I love you” or words to that effect, “beautiful,” “cute,” “built nicely” and asked a female student if she would like him to put a pole in the middle of a table so she could dance for the class.
He allegedly told one student if she “worked the corner,” she could make a lot of money. Other comments, such as telling a student her clothes were “skanky” and that one student should lose weight, were included in the college’s document.
During a practice, he allegedly told one or more female students “like most of you, I have a fat a–, and it needs to get behind the ball.”
In 2018, Morphet received a warning letter from the board, explaining he was expected to have no hands-on or physical contact with any student, the college wrote.
And in June 2019, he received a five-day suspension without pay and was required to undergo professional boundary training.
Morphet’s hearing is set for Aug. 26.
