Brittany Zamora, 27, was taken into custody on Wednesday after text messages were discovered indicating that she had a sexual relationship with a 13 year old student. Zamora taught 6th grade at Las Brisas Academy Elementary School in Goodyear, AZ. The text messages between the two were discovered by the 13 year old boys parents and indicated that the two may have had sexual contact both on and off of school campus.
“The text messages found are sexual in nature [and] allege an ongoing relationship between the two,” said Lisa Kutis, a spokeswoman for the Goodyear PD.
The text messages were discovered because the boys parents had an app installed on his phone to monitor his messages.
“As a result of the app, which alerted the parents to some key words, they then checked the cellphone and discovered these text messages,” Kutis told KPHO.
It is not currently known how long Zamora taught at the school however she received her certification to teach elementary school in 2016.
