Sick and Twisted for Jesus: A 51-year-old High School teacher in Texas sexually assaulted one of her students because she wanted to turn the 16-year-old boy straight.
A Houston Independent School District teacher has been charged after investigators say she had a sexual relationship with a student for more than a year.
Tedria Fluellen, 51, identified in court records as being a teacher’s assistant, is currently charged with sexual assault of a child under 17.
Tedria Fluellen, 51, is accused of abusing the 16 year-old for more than a year, beginning when he was a student at Worthington High School in Houston, Texas. The unnamed victim said he attended the same church as Fluellen…
That’s right, Fluellen, the abuser, and her unnamed underage victim attended the same Baptist church in Houston.
According to reports, before the sexual abuse began, Fluellen told her victim:
You don’t have to be gay.
According to court documents, the victim said the abuse started in 2018 when he was 16. The victim said he met Fluellen when he was attending Worthing High School. He also attended the same church with Fluellen. He told investigators he would sometimes go to Fluellen’s house to do things and help her get things out of her storage unit. He said he’d known her for 2 to 3 years.
Bottom line: Tedria Fluellen, a teacher in Houston, selected, groomed, and abused her child victim, using her connection with the child at school and church to facilitate the abuse in some absurd and deranged attempt to turn the boy straight.
Dr. Martez L. Prince, a pharmacist and entrepreneur, wanted to make an impact in his community ever since he received his doctorate in pharmacy from an HBCU. So, he quit his job at a big pharmaceutical company and started a pharmacy called Premier Pharmacy and Wellness Center that provides all-inclusive health care services to the community.
Prince, a 32-year old pharmacist who graduated from Florida A&M University in 2010, started out working at Rite Aid Corporation. During his five years with the company, he had been successful in climbing up the corporate ladder, but he didn’t feel satisfied. He felt that the company was focused more on their financial achievements than really serving their customers.
“I saw so many people walk in and out of the pharmacy and not really understand their health and well-being,” Prince told Black Enterprise. “Due to company metrics, it was impossible to spend adequate time teaching the patient what they needed to empower themselves.”
After thoroughly thinking it through, Prince decided to step out of his comfort zone, left his great-paying job, and created his own dream company to make a difference and impact the lives of the people he could serve. In 2015, he opened the Premier Pharmacy and Wellness Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The all-inclusive pharmacy offers a wide range of health care services aside from pharmaceutical services. An on-site clinic at Premier is staffed with a family nurse practitioner who can diagnose and treat non-urgent matters, such as ear infections and allergy symptoms, perform basic health screenings, and provide immunizations and travel vaccines. Premier has a retail store that sells vitamin supplements, personal hygiene items, drinks, and snacks as well.
In efforts to give more people more access to health care, Premier also offers membership programs and discounted rates to those who can’t afford health insurance.
Also a philanthropist, Prince created a non-profit called The Premier Foundation to help keep services and medications affordable for patients. Through the foundation, scholarships are also given out to some local students excelling in school and events and educational programs, such as wellness fairs, are being hosted.
Definitely, Prince has made his dream come true. He is now out to inspire others to follow their dream, too.
“Everyone is born with a dream already inside of them,” he said in an interview with he2magazine. “It’s up to each of us to make that dream a reality; it’s our sole purpose for existing. If you don’t follow your dream, you are destined to leave this earth without fulfilling your one and only true mission.”
Prince, who never stops dreaming, hopes that pharmacies around the world would pattern their practices similar to his – where wellness should always come first.
