Randi Chaverria, a teacher from Texas, has come under heavy fire after the revelation that she has reportedly engaged in oral sex with at least one of her students right in her classroom.
The 36-year-old family and consumer science teacher was reportedly once given the “Teacher of the Year” award of the local district, drawing even more criticism towards her, and raising various questions about the current state of the educational system.
The former educator at Round Rock High School was arrested last week after a student shared with the police that she performed oral sex on him twice in October.
Round Rock High School Principal Matt Groff told parents in a letter: “Safety is the top priority of Round Rick High School and Round Rock ISD. Ensuring a safe and secure learning environment requires partnership between students, parents, campus and district staff, as well as law enforcement.”
After teaching for over six years, Chaverria said the following earlier this year over her job: “The most important role of a teacher is to help shape future generations to become successful members of our community. More than any curriculum I teach my students, I hope that they will walk away from my classroom thinking of ways that they can make a difference in their community and impact the lives of others for the better.”
Chaverria was released on bond after turning herself in at the Williamson County Jail. She is facing charges of improper relationship between educator and student.
Many parents of students involved in her classes have voiced their disgust over the situation, while others have expressed their concern about what else might be going on behind the school’s doors.
This is yet another incident in a long recent streak of similar revelations, and it seems like more and more teachers have been finding themselves entangled in “a mess” of this type recently, according to some commenters.
It is not clear if there is any connection between all the cases or if it is just a coincidence, but there has been growing discontent with the current situation from multiple sides.
At this point, some parents of students in involved schools have started to call for more drastic measures, though it is not clear if anything of that sort will happen.
In any case, there are indeed reports of authorities investigating the activities of teachers in the local area more thoroughly at this point, which might lead to some uncomfortable revelations judging by the current trend.
Hopefully, that will not turn out to be the case, though, at this point, it is hard to tell.
