Like Hunter Day, another teacher who was recently arrested for sexual misconduct, Katherine taught science.  Unlike Day, Ridenhour did not cheat on her husband because she isn't married.  Ridenhour graduated from Liberty University in 2016 and was hired by Cox High School in August of the same year.  She was the school's cheerleading coach and science teacher.

Researchers are blaming the educator sexual misconduct epidemic on access.  We live in a connected world where students and teachers have access to social media at all times thanks to their mobile devices.  Social media networks like Snapchat and Instagram enable educators to communicate with students at all times.

Teachers Katherine's age are Millennials who are just as tech savvy as the students they teach.  While social media can be used in innovative ways to help students learn, academia is not prepared for its dangers therefore it should be banned from schools.
