A Texas teacher, Heather Lynn Miller, is facing felony charges after she was allegedly caught in a portable classroom trailer with an underage student.
Miller was arrested Sunday night after a campus security guard at Katy Junior H.S. found the 46-year-old with a 14-year-old male during a routine patrol.
Miller was allegedly "engaging in an inappropriate relationship" with the student, according to a statement released by the Katy Independent School District.
KPRC reports that Miller answered the door to the temporary classroom, telling the guard "everything was fine." Suspicious, the guard looked past her.
What he saw was a 14-year-old student getting dressed.
Police aren't discussing details of the case; Miller, who taught social studies, was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
District officials said in a statement regarding the case:
"Providing a safe and secure learning environment is and will continue to be our top priority, and we will always act swiftly when that is compromised."
Miller has been charged with improper relationship with a student, according to loval police. She posted $50,000 bond and was released Monday.
Local parents were shocked to learn of the allegations against Miller, who made an appearance in court Tuesday, agreeing not to contact the student.
As the accused teacher walked out of the court room arm-in-arm with two supporters, she was met by a parent who has a child at Katy Junior High School.
“You shouldn’t be around kids!” Cynthia Kaiser shouted at the accused.
”There’s been too many kids getting raped, getting abused and then why are these schools not checking to make sure these teachers are fit to be teachers?” Kaiser added.
Those who know Miller encouraged others to hear her side of the story.
“It’s sad because I know Heather, and I’ve seen her as a sweetheart that loves her children,” neighbor Pat Trull told KHOU. "Give her a chance."
