A former South High School teacher who resigned last year over allegations of inappropriate behavior with students has found work as a grant coordinator with the regional homeland security agency.

Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk Taylor said Oringdulph’s hire was not a decision by his department but by a commission made up of representatives from Pueblo, Custer, Huerfano, Fremont and Las Animas counties.
