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

Posted on | February 24, 2015 | 39 Comments

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.

(Hat-tip: Kirby McCain on Twitter.)

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.

    How many boys have had fantasies over language teachers…

    A lot.

    That does not make it right.

    Still, there were warning signs: Crazy Eyes:×1800/local/-/media/2015/01/24/KENS/KENS/635577079410649648-Gonzales-Maris-SID-1043977.JPG

    From the report:

    Police said the teacher shared the same bedroom as the alleged victim and would bring the children to school.

    Am I the only one who can see just where the problem might have started?

    We have a local singer, Storm Large, that you might have seen on that reality show some years back for choosing a new lead singer for INXS. She describes herself as having been a hulking monster of a soccer goalie in college, and said there were plenty of fellow “vagitarians” (her word) in rowing, but she preferred the lithe field hockey girls, running around with their bouncing ponytails.

    There’s no point to that story, except as an excuse to say “vagitarian.” 😉

    Thinking back on it, my 7th grade French teacher wasn’t that bad looking.

    But I took that language for the better male-female ratio.

    Before this, New Braunfels was best known for the Schlitterbahn waterpark.

    Speaking as former foreign language teacher, I stand as a witness that we’re extraordinarily sought after. Given that my wife of almost 30 years still is a foreign language teacher, you can only imagine the harmonic convergence of hotness which resulted when we married. In fact, our marriage at one time would have been illegal in 27 states and the District of Columbia.


    It’s hell being literate in more than English, but somebody’s got to do it.

    Ha! Um. Sorry?

    Just for kicks, I found my source for that: excerpts from her memoir Crazy Enough. It’s been a few years since I read that article, but my memory was fairly accurate. (I said “rowing” instead of “crew” because I don’t have any experience with that, so I remembered my mental translation instead of what she said.)

    I was just wondering how you come to find all this bizarre stuff. I read a LOT, but have never encountered a self-professed “vagetarian”…in fact, this salad isn’t looking quite so tasty anymore. =)

    Men are still more likely to be a sex offender but the women are catching up fast.

    Living in the Portland metro area, we have not one but two major alt newsweeklies: Willamette Week and Portland Mercury.

    Would you ask a gay sex columnist for parenting advice (or parent advice)? No? Me neither! Yet there are people who do. It’s like a freakshow of infinite variety.

    Would you like to know what ex-Gov. Kitzhaber’s emails reveal and the most contentious issue on new Gov. Brown’s plate? Yeah, it doesn’t have that flash, but it satisfies a more intellectual curiosity.

    I also have a highly eclectic list of YouTube channel subscriptions, but those two quirky publications are a pretty big secret weapon.

    The Austin-San Marcos-New Braunfels-San Antonio corridor along I-35 has been going to the dogs for a few decades, unfortunately. The suburbs are still in decent shape, but the urban cores are nothing but a PC cesspool…

    To take a leaf from the feminist playbook:

    You only assume that because you think the reporting of sex offenses is capturing all the offenses. Everybody KNOWS that there are a bajillion sex offenses committed by women that are never reported. Why, 1 in 4 children will be sexually abused by an adult woman before they graduate from high school. Because rape culture.
