Another week, and yet another story of a teacher caught in sexual misconduct with minor students.
A 23 year-old substitute teacher in Ohio was charged Thursday for allegedly having sexual relations with male students at Kettering Fairmont High School, according to the Dayton Daily News.
Madeline J. Marx was charged with two counts of sexual battery for having sex with a 16-year-old male student on Sept. 21, the police affidavit said. Another, 17 year-old male student told police he was given oral sex by the teacher July 19, WRGT reported.
The police report indicated that the alleged incidents occurred in a parking lot in the Kettering area.
Marx reportedly confessed to the conduct, according to the affidavit, as well as to using Snapchat and Instagram to send several nude pictures of herself to the students.
Video of Marx as she was taken to jail was released by Kettering Police.
Marx, who has been a substitute teacher with the district for two years, reportedly attended a local private high school, herself and graduated cum laude from the University of Dayton in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in education.
“I am passionate about children and their education. I am a hard-worker, who focuses on individual student’s strengths and needs,” she wrote in her job application for the teaching position, according to the Dayton Daily News.
Marx was immediately removed from the Fairmont classroom after some unnamed students went to the principal Wednesday about her conduct, according to WRGT. She was being held in custody at the Montgomery County Jail.
Superintendent for Kettering City School District Scott Inskeep assured parents that substitute teachers are vetted just as regular teachers and the district plans to ask the state to revoke Marx’s license.
“I just think parents can trust us with your kids every day,” Inskeep told WRGT-TV. “I can ensure that 99.9 percent are doing it the right way, and doing it appropriately.”
