MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – A high school teacher has resigned in the wake of accusations that she performed a sex act with a male student in her classroom.
School district officials learned this week that Emily Nesbit, 31, a former 11th grade English teacher at Cumberland Valley High School, was allegedly involved in an inappropriate relationship with a student.
Police obtained a search warrant for the cell phones of the teacher and the student after another student claimed she saw messages and pictures of a sexual nature on the student’s phone.
In his phone, the student had labeled Nesbit as “My Lady Friend,” reports Pennlive.com.
The cellphone records revealed that Nesbit and the student often exchanged sexual pictures and that the former teacher frequently expressed her desire to have sex with the boy in the classroom.
The text messages also inferred that some sexual activity had already taken place and Nesbit often encouraged the student to come “meet” her in the classroom during school hours.
The student did not deny the relationship and admitted that the two had held hands and kissed in the past. He said that he would meet with Nesbit in her classroom a couple times a week after school, reports Pennlive.com.
On one of those occasions, Nesbit admittedly performed a sex act with the student, according to the news report.
The former teacher has confessed to the allegations and charges are still pending.
