A Pleasantville High School teacher has been charged with official misconduct after allegedly having a sexual relationship with a student. Jessica Gaeckle, 30, of Galloway Township, was arrested Friday, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner said. She allegedly had sexual relations with an 18-year-old student on at least two occasions, and then directed the student to destroy evidence after she learned of a pending criminal investigation. She is charged with two counts of official misconduct and one count of hindering apprehension. Gaeckle was released on a summons. The investigation is a cooperative effort between the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit and the Pleasantville Police Department.
