Texas: Teacher Suspected of Lesbian Sex With Student at Christian Academy

Barb Wire

New Braunfels, Texas, is a rapidly growing community near I-35, about 30 miles from San Antonio and 45 minutes from Austin. In the past 20 years, the population of New Braunfels has roughly doubled and it now has more than 60,000 residents. Despite this rapid growth, it’s still a fairly small town, and this news must come as a shock to the community:

A math teacher at New Braunfels Christian Academy is under police investigation after allegations surfaced that she had ongoing inappropriate sexual relations with a former female student.

The teacher, 25, was fired [Feb. 16] after the student’s mother informed school officials of the alleged activity, New Braunfels Police Lt. Craig Christopherson said Friday.

However, the teacher, who has not been named publicly, had not been formally charged as of Friday morning.

New Braunfels Christian Academy officials immediately removed the teacher before terminating her, according to a news release. Officials took unspecified actions to bar the teacher from access to students or school property. . . .

“We are looking into the possibility of other victims,” Christopherson said.

The alleged offenses began around January 2012 when the teacher moved into the victim’s home, Christopherson said. The victim’s family tasked the teacher with taking care of their children while they were away and taking them to school.

The female teacher and the victim apparently shared a room, Christopherson said.

It’s unclear how long the relations lasted. The former student told her family about the alleged abuse on Feb. 13, according to Christopherson.

In a brief telephone interview this morning, Lt. Christopherson told me that the suspect has still not been named because no charges have been filed and the investigation is continuing. The teenager who reported the alleged abuse is a former student at the Academy; my guess is she graduated in 2014. From another news article:

“The complainant said this was roughly over a period of three years while she lived at the same residence as the victim. This apparently occurred – they were allowing her to stay in the house. She’d help watch the kids,” explained Lt. Craig Christopherson.

Police said the teacher shared the same bedroom as the alleged victim and would bring the children to school. New Braunfels police are working with Bulverde police because that’s where the victim lived at the time of the alleged incidents.

UPDATE: More Texas teacher crime reports:

Maris Gonzalez, 23, is currently being held in the Bexar County Jail. She is suspected of engaging in a sexual relationship with a student at Madison High School.

According to the affidavit, a police officer was responding to a burglar alarm near Raintree Bend and Raintree Run on Jan. 20 when he drove by a parked Mazda with windows that that had fogged up.

The officer looked inside and saw Gonzalez straddling another figure in the passenger seat, the affidavit said. . . .

When the officer confronted the pair, the male told the officer he was 18. The officer, however, determined that he was only 15. . . .

[Northeast Independent School District] Spokeswoman Aubrey Chancellor confirmed that Gonzalez had taught French at Madison and Churchill high schools from January 2014 until she resigned on Dec. 9.

Four days earlier, the boy’s parents notified the district of inappropriate text messages they found on their son’s phone, Chancellor said. . . .

The district began investigating immediately after the text messages were reported.
Gonzalez, however, denied having a physical relationship with the teen, Chancellor said.

She taught French? Of course. Never trust a French teacher.
