Pedophile is not a word that only applies to men, this woman is a pedophile. Thankfully, she never got the chance to lure this boy into a private meeting. To the people who say that Beth should have gone to the teacher and her husband instead of the police, you are ridiculous. If you knew the person who broke into your home and stole your jewelry, would you go to them and ask them to please not do that anymore or would you call the police? Those of you who are placing blame on the boy, shame on you. This boy is 13 years old, he does not have the life experience or sophistication to be responsible for any of this. Even if he did have a crush on this teacher, how does that justify her actions? I hope that this teacher is not too busy defending herself to realize that she completely violated this boy's trust. Ideally, she will get some jail time out of this, have her name added to the sex offenders registry and never be allowed to work with children again. I have no sympathy to spare for her.
