A 34-year-old Texas woman, Charity Anne Johnson, pretended to be a high school sophomore for nearly an entire year, fooling everyone in the process.

Duping her Longview, Texas, teachers, classmates and even the woman who took her in, school officials said nothing of the sort indicated a ruse.

“Everyone we talked to assumed she was a teenager like she said, because she looked like one,” said Stuart Newlin, principal of New Life Christian School.

“She had friends," he said, as puzzled as anyone. "Everybody liked her.”

It's anything but clear why Charity Anne Johnson, who was arrested this week, allegedly enrolled at the school in October as 15-year-old Charity Stevens.

“That’s a mystery. We have no clue,” Newlin said of Johnson's stint at school. “She came in with a guardian; there was no reason to be suspicious."

“Usually, parents come in, they fill out the paperwork and we take their word for it. If they come from another school, then you transfer the records."

"If they come from home school, they don’t have those records.”

Kalyn Thompson, 25, an English teacher at an Oklahoma high school, is charged with second degree rape following an alleged relationship with a student.

She resigned from her position at Kellyville High School in April.

Investigators say that Thompson had worked at the school for less than a year when she began texting with a 17-year-old male student in December.

The text messages soon took on a sexual nature, administrators told police, and the relationship allegedly began to escalate into full blown sexual activity.

In a police interview, the victim, who is a junior, told investigators that he had sex with Thompson twice ... once at a local lake and once at a Tulsa motel.

"It will follow her for the rest of her career," Creek County Detective Chrissie Underwood said. "She probably will not have a career in teaching after this."

South Dakota news anchor Nancy Naeve became one of the stars of the web this week when she dressed down viewers for complaining about storm coverage.

Her co-worker at ABC affiliate KSFY in Sioux Falls, meteorologist Shawn Cable, had to break in to regular programming to report a confirmed tornado Sunday.

The tornado, one of many seen in the upper midwest over the past week, touched down in Hospers, Iowa, which is about 70 miles from Sioux Falls.

Viewers, however, were outraged and took to the phone and Facebook to complain about Cable interrupting the Once Upon A Time Season 3 finale.

The next morning on the air, Cable showed footage of the tornado and then apologized for interrupting a TV show the night before. Naeve was not having it.

"No show is as important as someone's life," Naeve states. "But I tell you what. If it was your home and your neighbors, you would feel differently."

"So please don't do that. That's not nice."

A shocking video of Ohio kindergarten teacher Barb Williams picking a student up by his shirt and slamming him against a wall has gone viral this week.

Not surprisingly, it has enraged many parents - particularly Autumn and Anthony Nelson, whose 6-year-old son Ian is seen in the clip with Williams ...

This video is almost hard to stomach as it begins with Ian walking to the bathroom alone. When he leaves the bathroom, Williams is waiting for him in the hall.

There is no sound, but she is PISSED, picking him up by his shirt and slamming him against the wall not once, but twice with no hero cat - or other adult - in sight.

All kidding aside, it gets even worse. One moment also shows her grabbing the boy by the face and tilting his head back in a borderline scary scene.

The New York Times published an article yesterday reporting an abrupt, unexpected change at the top of the paper of record's editorial staff.

The Times announced that Jill Abramson has been "dismissed" as executive editor and replaced by Pulitzer-winning journalist Dean Baquet.

Abramson was the first female to lead the newsroom of the iconic paper and she held her position for a brief three years.

Typically, dismissals from such high-profile jobs are treated in the press as mutual decisions by both parties, so The Times public acknowledgement that Abramson was fired has raised eyebrows as well as questions of just what caused the esteemed journalist to be so unceremoniously ousted.

We're in the thick of Disney's Frozen taking over every corner of pop culture, so it seems like a fitting time to take a look at what makes Disney's princess movies so unique.

The answer: Not a whole lot. 

That hasn't sat well with many members of the Disney-viewing public, so Tumblr artist TT took matters into her own hands and released a series of racebent Disney princesses. 

What would our favorite Disney princesses look like if they weren't white? Take a look:

Ariel gets a makeover as artist TT's reimagined Little Mermaid.

Disney has long been accused of whitewashing its characters and failing to show women of color represented among the line of its princess stories.

It wasn't until 2009's The Princess and the Frog debuted Tiana that Disney had a Black princess. Prior to that, the only princesses of color were Jasmine, Mulan, and Pocahontas.

All the remaining princesses were white.

Ready to be inspired, THGers?

At the Southern Illinois State Track Meet over the weekend, 13-year old twins Chloe and Claire Gruenke were both running the 800-meter race when the former felt something pop in her leg and fell down.

"I thought oh my goodness what just happened," Claire told KSDK.com. "I went up to her and I said 'Chloe are you okay?' and she was like 'I don't know. Something just pulled in my leg.'"

Did Claire yell for help and finish on her own? Nope.

"I put her on my back, and then I started to jog," Claire explained. "I got really tired, so I walked the rest and the crowd was just blaring in my ears. That gave me energy to at least finish it."

A kids' party nearly turned tragic on Monday in New York State as a strong gust of wind hurled an inflatable bounce house into the air with multiple children inside.

Two young boys were admitted to the hospital with serious injuries after falling 15 feet from the inflatable structure, which soared 50 feet into the air.

The incident occurred outside an apartment complex when witnesses say a large gust of wind carried the structure and spun it around while it was lifted up.

One of the boys fell on a parked car about 20 feet away while the other boy was reportedly thrown 30-40 feet from the original location of the bounce house.

South Glens Falls, N.Y., police did not release the condition of the boys, but a neighbor told The Post-Star that the boy who fell on the car has a serious head injury.

Sorry, Kim Kardashian. But Sarah Thislethwaite had a better Mother's Day than you did.

The Akron, Ohio resident gave birth via C-section on Friday to a pair of monoamniotic (or "mono mono") twins, meaning the babies shared the same amniotic sac and placenta during their time in the womb.

When they finally entered the world, Jillian and Jenna were separated for a minute or so - but then held hands upon being placed side by side, a breathtaking moment actually captured on camera and posted to Twitter:

At first, the twins were having trouble breathing on their own and were placed on ventilators.

But they were finally able to be held by Mom yesterday, resulting in "the best Mother's Day present ever," as Sarah told NBC News.

High school teachers having sex with students is not a new thing (sadly), but the latest scandal to fall into that category may be the most cringe-worthy yet:

Ellen Niemiec, 29, is married with three young children, but the South Carolina woman is accused of sleeping with not one, not two, but three of her students.

In one night.

Ellen Niemiec Mug Shot

The Cross High School teacher reportedly attended a party on April 11 on school grounds. While there, she was said to have had sex multiple times.

Two of the students she allegedly slept with are 17, while a third is 18.

As a result of the reported love trysts, she was charged with three counts of sexual battery, two of which are felonies because two students were underage.
