Teacher Accused of Having Sex With Student

A former Houston-area biology teacher and cheerleading instructor who allegedly provided a nude photo of herself to a student has been accused of having sex with him.

The Pasadena Independent School District launched an investigation after the photo turned up on cellphones of some students.

Ashley Zehnder was charged Monday with having an improper relationship with a student. No publicly listed number could immediately be located Tuesday for the 24-year-old Zehnder, who's free on $10,000 bond.

Court documents indicate the teen lost his cellphone, Zehnder let him use hers to help locate his device and the two began texting. Zehnder allegedly provided a nude photo, which he shared with others. Investigators said the pair had a sexual relationship last summer at her home.

Zehnder resigned Oct. 9 amid the investigation.
