A high school math teacher cited for indecent exposure in Post Falls two weeks ago continued teaching before Spokane Public Schools learned of the incident through a police news release Tuesday afternoon. Daniel James Rhoades, 31, was cited for the misdemeanor Feb. 19 after a woman called 911 Feb. 7 and said a man had exposed his genitals to her as she sat in her parked car in the parking lot of Super One Foods at 805 E. Polston Ave. about 11 p.m. Police traced the license plate of the suspect’s blue Dodge Dakota to Rhoades, who was issued a citation after he admitted the crime, said Post Falls police Capt. Scot Haug. “He had confessed to the investigator that he’d done this on several other occasions, but this was the first time he’d been caught,” Haug said. Rhoades, a Post Falls resident who’s taught at Rogers High School in north Spokane since fall 2006, was put on paid leave Tuesday afternoon, said schools spokeswoman Terren Roloff. Rhoades had worked as a substitute teacher since February 2006 before being hired at Rogers, where he taught mostly freshmen and sophomores, Roloff said. He also coached the 8th grade wrestling team at Shaw Middle School.
