The teacher-led obsession with Snapchat and their students continues, once again in the Sunshine State. This time it’s 29-year-old Thomas Tomaszewski who was teaching at a middle school in Orange County. He’s accused of allegedly sending nude Snapchats to and soliciting explicit pictures from a female student of his school. His ‘reasoning’ for Snapchatting his student sounds like it came straight from ‘To Catch A Predator’…
The girl told deputies she had trouble fitting in at school, so Tomaszewski gave her his phone number, the arrest report states. They started texting, with him often giving her advice or words of encouragement.
Let me stop right there for a moment. As I’ve said before. Any contact between teacher and student that circumvents parents is rarely any good.
Anyway, Tomaszewski reported told police that he was just trying to help the girl feel “wanted and valued.” He might as well have said that he just wanted to hang out and that the wine coolers were just for him.
Since he’s a male teacher victimizing a female student I imagine he’ll be buried under the jail any day now.
