A criminal complaint said the victim told cops he and Gonzales kissed in her car and she made him put his hands over her clothed genital area. The pair also went to her apartment in Bay View where, after they watched the movie “Deadpool,” she rubbed her hand over his groin and had him touch her breasts over her clothing, the boy said.
Danielle Matko, a 35-year-old former English teacher at the East Palo Alto Aspire Phoenix Academy, was convicted Tuesday of one count of oral copulation with a minor and three counts of lewd acts with a minor.
Police said the encounters happened during free periods and after school. Matko was talking with one boy in the classroom when she showed him her breasts and allowed the student to touch them, prosecutors said. They added she then touched the boy sexually.
Heather Lee Robertson, 39, an East Texas kindergarten teacher who had sex with at least six high school students.
According to court documents, Robertson initiated the encounters by contacting the victims on Snapchat.
On one occasion this past November, a student convinced his parents to drop him off at Robertson’s apartment so he could help her move furniture. Instead, court documents say, Robertson and the student had sex before Robertson took him home.
