Pennsylvania – An Altoona special education teacher is facing charges after police said she sent explicit pictures and a video to an underage student.
Police say officials were tipped off about a student at Altoona Area High School having sexual relations with a teacher in November of 2018.
Investigators later discovered that the teacher in question was 46-year-old Holly Metzler, a special education teacher at the school. …
When questioned, police say Metzler and the student denied any inappropriate contact between each other.
Later, investigators say, several students reported seeing pictures and videos of Metzler on the 17-year-old’s phone.
After issuing a search warrant, police say they searched the student’s phone and discovered two pictures and a video of a naked woman that appeared to have been sent through the app, SnapChat. They also said they found Metzler’s contact information on the phone.
During another interview, police say the 17-year-old identified the woman in the pictures and video as Metzler and admitted that she had sent them to him.
Police say the two never had a physical sexual relationship.
First, I’d like to offer my sincere and heartfelt apologies. Grading the Newest Sex Scandal Teacher posts have been few and far between as of late. I realize that. I have a platonic female friend who works for a local professional sports team I won’t mention who was down in Atlanta last week at parties and concerts while I was hold up by myself in Stately Thornton Manor slavishly producing Patriots content of the highest quality. And she no sooner got back to New England when she reached out to say two things: Hello and will I be doing any SSTs soon. Sigh. Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.
I mean, I get it. It’s a blessing, not a curse. Staying current on aging, deranged, sex-mad educators desperate to be lusted after by their teenage students is my charge. My obligation. I appreciate that actual people with busy lives are waiting, and these pages do not view themselves. It’s just been a busy time with a team winning a Super Bowl and I have to triage which blogs get top priority and which can wait. Just don’t ever assume I’m being derelict in my duty. These crazy ladies don’t take time off and dammit, neither do I.
Looks: Um, yup. If that selfie on the beach is lying to us, then she has a professional quality selfie game. She’s like an Altoona, PA Leah Remini. And I don’t just casually throw Leah Remini references around casually.
Moral Compass/Bad Judgment: SnapChat has most definitely become the Sex Scandal Teacher’s weapon of choice. It’s doing for SSTs what the Spread has done for college football or using your best reliever to get high-leverage outs in the middle innings has done for MLB. It’s revolutionizing the way everything is played. Eventually maybe these teachers will learn that the photos don’t just all vanish anymore. But their students would be crazy to tell them. Anyway, photos and a video this 17-year-old can show around school are all well and good. But digital images will never been a substitute for the real thing. And as long as Holly Metzler’s fellow teachers are giving that away, I can’t give her better than a
