She was said to have hugged the boy at the end of the dance, saying, ‘I love you baby, happy birthday.’
Felicia, a teacher at Stovall Middle School in Houston was charged on Thursday with having an improper relationship with a student.
According to the student, at the beginning of his third-period class, the teacher placed a chair in front of the classroom and told him to sit down as music began playing. He was encouraged by his classmates who started yelling to sit and that’s when the birthday dance which lasted for nearly four minutes began.
He said the teacher allowed him to slap and squeeze her butt.
Felicia allegedly rubbed her hands on his body, fondled him, grinded against him and at one point, while on her knees, she placed her head between the student’s legs.
Felicia admitted giving the boy a lap dance but said she did so after the rest of the class convinced her to.
During the investigation, Felicia was removed from campus by the school district.
The Aldine Independent School District said in a statement, “The teacher was removed from the campus during the investigation and has not returned. The district takes this allegation seriously and is fully cooperating with prosecutors. The safety and security of our students will continue to be a top priority in Aldine ISD.”
Bail has been set at $30,000.
