Sarah Fowlkes Texas science teacher is arrested after allegedly having sex with a 17 year old student. The teacher faces a second degree felony and possible jail.
Also making her entry into the ever expanding repertoire of female teachers sexually preying on their students is 27 year old Texas science teacher, Sarah Fowlkes. An accomplishment judging from her eerie mugshot photo (below) the biology teacher has taken with aplomb. Indeed!
Sarah Madden Fowlkes who had worked as a biology teacher at the school since October, 2014 was on Monday booked into Caldwell County Jail.
Upon her arrest, Fowlkes was charged with engaging in an improper relationship between an educator and student, a second-degree felony.
Of note, the teacher who has been married since 2013, had celebrated her birthday at a restaurant with her husband the night before she was arrested.
Matters came to the fore after a school administrator contacted the police about an inappropriate relationship between a student and a teacher that had come to the school’s attention.
Detectives in Lockhart, which is about 30 miles from Austin, interviewed a 17-year-old student who admitted to having sexual contact with Fowlkes.
Lockhart Independent School District duly suspended Fowlkes pending an appearance before the State Board for Educator Certification.
Reflected School superintendent Susan Bohn in a statement: ‘Lockhart parents entrust their children to us every day, and it is something we do not take lightly.
‘Student safety is the district’s most important priority. As soon as we learned of the report, we acted swiftly to involve law enforcement and CPS to conduct a thorough investigation. The district does not and will not tolerate any improper communication or contact between a teacher and child.’
Heavy.com reported that on her profile page on the school’s website – which has since been deleted – Fowlkes wrote: ‘I have very high expectations of myself as a teacher as well as of my students and I hope that this will be a formula for achievement.
‘I want this to be an enjoyable year for all of my students but also a productive, challenging and encouraging year with success for everyone.’
At present it is yet to be necessarily understood why the teacher chose to abuse her position of authority and trust and subjugate the boy into dominion….
