Teacher Ken Ottmar Said WHAT?

High school teacher in hiding accused of kinky behavior.

School officials say he made sexually suggestive comments to students, allowed teens to drink alcohol in his house, told kids about his sexual fantasies, and favored the pretty girls in class, but the P.G. High School teacher alleged to have done those things and more maintains none of it ever happened.

The district contends Ottmar told students that he’d had sex with his wife in his class room; that it was his fantasy for his wife and her best friend to have a lesbian relationship; that he visited strip clubs while in Las Vegas; and that he and others liked watching his “wife run track because she is sexy.”

Ottmar — who began working in PGUSD in 2008 after leaving his writing job at the Monterey County Herald — told one girl she had “nice wide thighs” and would “make a
good wife one day and have lots of babies,” and told another student she was a “BBW (big butt woman),” according to the district.“Sexually suggestive and flirtatious comments are highly inappropriate and have no place in the classroom,” the reprimand notice says.

Where’s Ottmar?

What is he hiding from?

A Pacific Grove High School girls’ basketball coach has been on paid leave since last September — and has collected more than $60,000 in paychecks — but officials won’t say why he’s off the job and whether or not he’ll return.

Ken Ottmar, who is also an English teacher and the activities director at the school, has been paid $63,020.02 since Sept. 27, 2015, the date he was placed on leave.

Ottmar has coached several sports in the district, including boys’and girls’ basketball, football and golf, PGUSD human resources director Billie Mankey said.
