Tracy Vanderhulst

A high school teacher aged 38 has been detained on allegations of engaging in an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old student in Yucaipa.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department was first alerted about the supposed illicit sexual relationship between a minor and a teacher at Yucaipa High School on Thursday.

Investigators identified the accused as Tracy Vanderhulst, aged 38, during their probe. Vanderhulst was apprehended and is currently in custody with bail set at $30,000.

Yucaipa High, in a now-removed tweet, stated that Vanderhulst “provides a rigorous mathematics program and displays deep affection towards her students.”

Vanderhulst is recognized as a math instructor at YHS and was honored as Teacher of the Year in 2017.

At this stage, it remains unknown whether the minor involved is a student at the same high school.
