A Houston middle school teacher has been charged with having an improper relationship with a student after she allegedly gave a boy a lap dance in front of the entire class.
Felicia Smith, 42, a teacher at Stovall Middle School, was removed from campus after she admitted to giving a male student a lap dance for his birthday on Feb. 26.
According to a male student, Miss Smith placed a chair next to her desk and other students yelled for him to sit down in it. Music began playing and the teacher began performing a “full contact lap dance,” according to court records, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The student said Miss Smith rotated her buttocks against him and rubbed her hands all over his body. Toward the end of the dance, the boy said, Miss Smith got on her knees and placed her head between his legs. The student admitted that he slapped her on the buttocks a few times, according to documents.
Investigators with the Aldine Independent School District Police have reviewed video of the performance.
“The teacher was removed from the campus during the investigation and has not returned,” police said in a statement, KHOU reported. “The district takes this allegation seriously and is fully cooperating with prosecutors. The safety and security of our students will continue to be a top priority in Aldine ISD.”
Miss Smith is free on $30,000 bail.
