A Neches ISD teacher and coach was arrested Thursday after being accused of having a sexual relationship with one of her students.
The ugly 49-year-old Lisa Harroff was charged with “improper relationship between educator and student.” She was later released on $25,000 bond. The perverted honkstress has held a teaching certificate since May of 1985 allowing her to teach grades 1-8.
The district confirmed Harroff’s status as a junior high math teacher and high school cross-country track coach Monday, adding that she is on paid administrative leave pending the outcomes of a criminal investigation by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department and a separate one at the district level whose results will be forwarded to the Texas Education Agency.
“It’s an isolated incident and we are taking every precaution that we can to not let it happen again,” Superintendent Randy Snider said.
Snider said Harroff denied the allegations when he spoke with her on Wednesday. The meeting was in response to a complaint made by the guardians of a 17-year-old student and cross-country track runner Tuesday night.
Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor said his department began investigating the witch on Wednesday, May 29 after the students’ guardians came to his office with information about the alleged relationship between their son and Harroff. Taylor said Harroff was not the teen’s classroom teacher.
“We served a search warrant on the [Harroff’s] house and did find some physical evidence that this relationship may have been going on for quite some time,” Taylor said. “She actually turned herself in and she bonded out that same day. And she’s out on bond right now. A $25,000 bond.”
At home Monday, Harroff told local media she was unable to talk about the allegations.
“Thank you,” Harroff said. “I appreciate it, but I can’t.”
“When a teacher and a student are involved, there are morality issues–the teaching of what’s right and wrong,” Taylor said. “The concept of what our kids are sent to school to do is certainly not have relations with a teacher.”
“She’s a very good math teacher,” Snider said. “She was a very good teacher. If you asked the kids who they like the most it would have been her.”
