Did you think I’d leave you without giving you one last teacher-student sex scandal for 2016? Not a chance. We close out the year with Mallory Christ, a New Jersey teacher who had her teaching certificate revoked by state officials for sexting a student.
Christ, who was a South Plainfield High School teacher and cheerleading coach, was charged in June with second-degree endangering the welfare of a child. She was accused of sending two photos of herself through social media to the student in February, prosecutors said.
The 29-year-old math teacher allegedly sent inappropriate photos of herself to a male student and as a result, she had her teaching certificate revoked this week. Christ surrendered her teaching license as part of a deal with prosecutors. She had her teaching certificate since 2010.
Let’s hope teachers aren’t as naughty in 2017.
