(Daily Mail By PAUL THOMPSON) — The substitute teacher then began texting the 15-year-old boy with investigators believing she was attempting to start a sexual relationship.
The relationship between Gordon and the boy was discovered after the teen’s mother found out about the text messages and called police.
Investigators said Gordon, who taught at the Sussex Technical High School in Delaware, had left her cell phone on her desk when it was taken by the 15-year-old.
He went to the school bathroom during a lunch break where he viewed nude photographs Gordon had taken of herself and stored on the phone.
The teen returned the phone to Gordon after the lunch break when he returned to class.
Police said Gordon handed the phone back to the teen and allowed him to continue browsing the nude images while she taught the rest of the class.
Gordon and the student exchanged telephone numbers and began texting each other.
The boy’s mother complained to police that her son had been communicating through text messages with a teacher and viewed inappropriate photographs.
After a lengthy investigation, Gordon was arrested and charged with one count of providing obscene material to a minor. She was released after posting $1,500 bail.
