Authorities said that a middle school teacher in Texas gave one student a birthday lap dance in front of a classroom of other students.
According to KHOU, Felicia Smith allegedly groped and grinded on a 15-year-old boy while the rest of the class watched.
Court documents showed that the alleged “full-contact lap dance” occurred on Feb. 26.
The documents state that Smith danced on and touched the boy while he sat in a chair in front of the classroom. At one point, the student claimed that his teacher put her head between his legs when she got down on her knees. He admitted to touching and smacking her buttocks several times. The complaint also alleges that at the end of the dance, she wished him a "Happy Birthday" and said that she loved him.
Smith did admit to the shocking and inappropriate behavior with the student. The 42-year-old said that she agreed to perform the dance at the urging of his classmates.
KPRC reported that many students and parents actually support Smith and said that she was a good teacher who made a mistake.
She has since been removed from the school on paid-administrative leave and charged with having an improper relationship with a student.
