Either modern technology is just making it easier for us to find out about these teachers who are preying on our children, or the teachers have decided that having sex with their students is better than Match.com and eHarmony combined.
Whatever the reason for this practice, which seems to be more and more common, Katherine Harper, 27, allegedly had a sexual relationship with a 15-year old student last summer at Tidwell Middle School in Roanoke, Texas--and now she is eight months pregnant!
Now before you become judge and jury, paternity has not yet been established. The school district got an anonymous tip through its website that said the boy and the cheerleading coach were having sex, according to Fox 4 News. Reportedly, the two were hooking up at her home in Fort Worth as well as at his home in Trophy Club.
According to the New York Daily News, Harper was the teen's English teacher and tennis coach. Initially they were texting nude photos to each other and flirting. As you would expect, the boy saved the pictures on his phone. He broke down in tears when his high school principal questioned him about the affair. "One thing led to another and she told me to 'put it in' and I did," the boy said.
That was enough to arrest Harper and book her into the Denton County Jail on a $15,000 bond. She has since been released, but faces a second-degree felony charge of an improper relationship between an educator and student.
Now if any of this is true, especially the part about the boy being her baby's father, then she will have ruined three lives. That means no more teaching for her and she probably will have to register as a sex offender. Yikes
