May 7--  For the second time in just over a week, the Montgomery County school board has hired a new Montgomery County Middle school principal.

At a called meeting Monday night, the board rescinded it's earlier hiring of Marcus Scott, an assistant principal at Jenkins High School in Savannah.

After hiring Scott, the board learned he had been fired by the Liberty County Board of Education in 2006.  The firing happened after his former wife reported they first had sex in 1999 while she was a 15-year-old student and he was a 20-year-old substitute teacher at her school.  They later married, had a son and divorced.

County School Superintendent Randy Rodgers says, "As time progressed, we realized that the situation we had was not going to be a good fit."

The board has now hired a faculty member from the Dekalb County school system to take the job.

Jaunita Boatwright most recently has been teaching Enlish as a second language and has been in education for 20 years.

"Elementary, middle, I worked for the college board, central office, everything, I've had my hand in everything, I just love teaching," she said. 

And her message to students and parents, "Get excited.  We're going to move forward and be successful."
