Teacher fired for texting inappropriate images to student

Posted: Updated:

St. Thomas Aquinas is the patron saint of scholarship, learning, and academics - virtues that the local school that bears his namesake adopts as the guiding principles for its pupils and faculty members alike. Aquinas is also the patron saint of chastity - a fact now eerily ironic, as one of the teachers at the campus in Central Guam has been dismissed following a rather lewd incident.   

When you send your child off to school, you often expect them to come home with homework. But one student at St. Thomas Aquinas came home with more than just extra assignments - he came home with what appeared to be inappropriate photos sent to him from his teacher.

A teacher at the Ordot school in was recently terminated after a male student reported that she had texted inappropriate images of herself to him. In a statement from the Archdiocese of Agana to KUAM, Deacon Larry Claros who serves as the sexual abuse response coordinator states the incident occurred back in January. Claros states that school administration took proper and immediate action upon receiving the information and reported the matter to police as required by law.

According to Guam Police Department spokesperson Officer AJ Balajadia, the school's principal Pilar Williams filed a complaint at the Hagatna Precinct on January 14. The complaint states the 25-year-old female allegedly sent inappropriate photos of herself to a 14-year-old male student.

No arrests have been made an investigation is ongoing.

The Archdiocese of Agana also notes that they take the safety of all children very seriously and will not tolerate behavior of any adults with whom our youth are entrusted.
