A Texas middle school teacher was charged after she performed a lap dance for a student in front of his classmates, police said.
The 15-year-old student said teacher Felicia Smith grabbed his journal and stopped him from talking to friends as he walked into his third-period class one day in February.
The 42-year-old teacher placed a chair in front of the room and played music as the teen’s classmates yelled at him to sit down.
The student said Smith gave him a full-contact lap dance, rubbing her buttocks and hands against his body and kneeling down between his knees.
The teen admits he slapped the teacher’s buttocks several times.
Smith hugged the teen after the four-minute dance ended and told him she loved him and wished the boy a happy birthday.
The teacher admitted she performed the dance for the student at the urging of his classmates, and she said students laughed when she lost her balance while dancing.
The incident was recorded on video, and police charged Smith with improper relationship with a student.
