HOUSTON, TX – Police have arrested 25-year-old Nikki Scherwitz, a 10th grade English teacher, after they say she had an inappropriate relationship with one of her 16-year-old students.
Police say Scherwitz has been teaching at Brazosport High School for only nine months, but had been having a sexual relationship with one of the 16-year-old boys in her class for a few weeks.
Allegations of misconduct first surfaced April 22, two days after Scherwitz showed up to an after prom party being held at a student’s house.
“She was wearing no shoes when she showed up…like a cut up, cut off shirt and everything,” said one student. Another student at the party told the teacher that she shouldn’t be there and asked her to leave. Scherwitz left, along with a 16-year-old boy.
When school officials were informed of the the inappropriate conduct, they confronted Scherwitz about the allegations. She resigned that day, before the investigations was complete.
They handed all of their information over to the Freeport Police Department who ended up charging Nikki Scherwitz with sexual assault of a child and improper relationship with a student. Scherwitz is currently out on a $50,000 bond.
Scherwitz and her husband were already separated before the relationship with the teen began. The couple have a son who is staying with his father.
Over on her wix site, Scherwitz stated: “I’m blessed to teach our sweet Exporters, and I intend to make their time at BHS as rewarding as my own.” *snicker*
And to anyone who inevitably asks, “Where were these teachers when I went to school?” The answer is easy; they were fucking the cool kids.Tags: Brazosport High School, Nikki Scherwitz, Sexual Assault, student, teacher, Texas
