What a child takes in from school cannot be inculcated through other means. When we say schools, it is obvious that teachers are the ones building the children in that place. There can be undesirable instances as well that may happen like this one where a teacher slept with her student and the things got complicated.
An extremely unpleasant incident took place in Las Brisas Academy Elementary School in Arizona where Brittany Zamora, 28, was taken into custody after a complaint was lodged against her. The case was that she had slept with a 13-year-old student.
The same students came forward and informed the police about the whole situation he was in and how the teacher got him to be physical with her, not once but four times. It even happened in the classroom as reported by the boy.
After Zamora was arrested, her statement was taken and amidst that, she expressed her worries if she was sent to the prison as she was afraid of what the consequences would be. She was fearful of the inmates and kept saying that they would tear her apart. Her exact words as recorded were, “I’m little. They’re gonna tear me apart.”
She was enquired about the details of the incident including how it all began and the reason behind this act. Her response to their question was, “I just got really close after I think everything went down and we’re like, ‘How could that happen?’ … We just got close.”
Later when the case was taken to the court, some details came to light which included certain texts that were exchanged between the two. One of the Zamora’s texts to the boy read, “OMG, I love you”. There was also a text saying, “I wish you could’ve stayed after with me.”
The boy had replied to these texts that showed his interest in being with her at all times without any interruption. It was even stated that after their meeting he had texted Zamora telling her how he was waiting to sleep with her again to which her response was, “I know baby! I want you every day with no time limit.”
This continued for quite a while until the boy came forward and revealed everything that made the case. The boy’s father is disappointed and upset by all that has happened. He is perturbed mainly because of the fact that his son’s innocence and childhood have been taken away by this act and there is no way it could make a place in his life again. That’s a shame!
He blames the school authorities for this as they did not take the necessary steps in this direction. They could have stepped in at the right time and avoided the situation going to such lengths. So, a $2.5 million lawsuit has been launched by the family against the school as they need to take responsibility as cases involving children are sensitive and need unwavering attention.
In such cases, the school and the parents are equally culpable. The school needs to make sure that the students are in good hands and build positive surroundings for them. The role of parents is to keep a track of what their kids are up to on social media and be plugged into their friend circle to know the company they have.
These little but important steps will help avoid such complexities in the lives of growing up children!
