Whitney Grunder Laidlaw, a seventh grade teacher at Cornerstone Academy, was placed on administrative leave last week after school officials learned she was arrested on two counts of sexual misconduct, said Spring Branch Independent School District officials.
Houston police investigators said Laidlaw exchanged cell phone numbers with the alleged victim, who was 14 at the time.
The girl also told police that Laidlaw texted titillating photos and videos of herself and asked the purported victim to reciprocate.
Court documents revealed the girl said Laidlaw also asked her to sneak out of her family’s Harris County apartment and meet with her, according to KTRK.
The academy is a public charter school within Spring Branch ISD.
