ST. PARIS — A Graham High School teacher known for flying with the Navy’s Blue Angels and studying sea life in the Arctic is facing a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence.
Chantelle M. Rose, 39, will face a pretrial hearing in Champaign County Municipal Court on July 30, after she was accused of biting a man in the chest and making threats, court records show.
The charge stems from an incident June 3 at a home in the 6000 block of Ohio 55 in Mad River Twp.
Rose, a science teacher, has pleaded not guilty to the single charge of domestic violence.
Norm Glismann, superintendent at Graham Local Schools, said Rose will not teach this summer and has been told not to participate in summer activities as a middle school cheerleading supervisor.
If the case extends into the school year, the district’s school board will take formal action, Glismann said.
The charge also has been reported to the Ohio Department of Education in compliance with state law.
Rose was chosen as one of seven science teachers nationwide to participate in the Teachers in Space program, in which she trained for flight in the Mojave Desert.
She also spent six weeks studying sea life in the Arctic as part of the PolarTREC program.
