A female teacher has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a teenage student inside her school classroom in Texas after the boy was able to describe her intimate tattoos to police.
Gianna Bednarski, 32, was taken into custody at her home in Freeport on Tuesday, and has since resigned from her role at Brazosport High School.
Suspicions of a teacher-student affair were raised after a school district officer observed Bednarksi at a basketball game in December.
The officer, who was there to escort the school’s varsity and junior basketball teams to the game, noted that the teacher had only brought food for one student – the victim.
On several occasions the officer noted that the victim was talking to other female students, and noted that Bednarski, who was there with her toddler, was watching closely and appeared upset.
‘On at least two occasions, he saw the student talking to other female students in the hallway as Bednarski stood in close proximity staring at [the student] with a concerned look on her face as if she was upset,’ according to a probable cause document seen by KPRC-TV.
Brazosport ISD Police were notified by the school of the inappropriate relationship in January and began investigating the claims.
The student subsequently gave school district officers permission to look at his phone and saw he had Bednarski’s number.
They searched the teacher and students and found they had sent each other emails and Snapchat messages which included naked videos and pictures Bednarksi sent to the teenager.
Investigators claimed that they both initially lied about relationship. However school officers later received a call from the boy’s mother saying that he had something to tell them.
