Pocatello High School teacher and girls basketball coach Laraine Cook will be allowed to keep her teaching certificate.

Cook was fired in October, after district officials learned of a photo she had posted on her Facebook page. The photo showed Cook’s fiancé, Pocatello football coach Tom Harrison, touching Cook’s clothed breast. Harrison was reprimanded.
