COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- A Collier County teacher, under investigation after allegations of child abuse, will be back in the classroom when school starts next month.

Laurie Nowlin was investigated by the Department of Children and Families. The school district says DCF closed the case, after there were no findings of abuse.

Nowlin was a fifth grade teacher at Pelican Marsh Elementary School. She was assigned to the Administrative Center during DCF's investigation, but the district says she will be returning back to Pelican Marsh in August.
