    Teacher in theft case put on leave

    RICHFORD An elementary school teacher who police say embezzled about $3,500 while serving as treasurer of the Richford Parent Teacher Organization has been placed on paid leave from her teaching duties.

    Vermont State Police said 35-year-old Shawna Steinhour embezzled the money from October 2011 to March 22.

    Franklin Northeast School Superintendent Jay Nichols told The Burlington Free Press that Steinhour will be on an indefinite paid leave from the school while the matter is being investigated.

    The newspaper said attempts to reach Steinhour or her husband, who serves on the town School Board, have been unsuccessful.
