Dyersburg teacher suspended amid TBI investigation for misconduct

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A Dyersburg High School teacher is being investigated by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, according to District Attorney Danny Goodman.

Dyersburg City Schools Superintendent Neal Durbin confirms John Moody--an English teacher at Dyersburg High School--has been suspended since March 5.

Durbin wouldn't release many details about the investigation, but he did say the allegations are "impropriety with the internet."

"That's nasty. It's trifling," said a 2011 graduate of Dyersburg High who asked not to be identified. "It's almost to the point in today's society where it's not OK to send your kids to school."

The TBI confirmed it is investigating Moody.
