Kelsie Schmidt, a Beululah, North Dakota math teacher resigns after student claims she sent him topless photos and invitation to play naked hide and seek.
A 22-year-old high school teacher has resigned after a 17-year-old boy claims she invited him to a group game of ‘naked hide and seek.’

They said another image was of bare legs, with the strap-line: ‘Get a group and play naked hide and seek,’ the Dickinson Press reported.
The 17-year-old told a police officer he had been sent images that could ‘get the math teacher in trouble,’ court documents said.
Cops said the female educator send the boy three or four racy snaps, Lailas News stated.
The boy claimed Schmidt sent him the photos in August and September.
Documents also say when Schmidt was interviewed she admitted to sending nude pictures to the victim.
