A special ed teacher at an all-boys middle school in Texas has been arrested and accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student.
28-year-old Rebecca Goerdel was arrested after Grand Prairie school district officials found out on March 10th that she may be having a relationship with a student there.
She was a special ed teacher at the Young Men’s Leadership Academy at Kennedy Middle School. It’s not clear whether the victim was from her own class.
She was immediately removed from the classroom after the allegations surfaced. School officials then informed authorities the same day and started an investigation that, in the end, led to her arrest.
Her mugshot, featuring a seemingly happy smile (above), has gone viral for just that reason.
