Shanice Lambert: Another Panhandle Teacher Accused of Sexual Misconduct

What in tarnation is going on in the schoolhouses on Texas's High Plains?

The latest in the Shame Parade is Shanice Lambert, who looks much more glamorous on her Facebook page than in her Armstrong County mugshot. According to the Amarillo Globe-News, police in Childress accuse the 37-year-old teacher's aide of sexual assault of a child and improper relationship with a student, and the Texas Rangers are now investigating the case.

Lambert has been on administrative leave since March 20 and was arrested Wednesday. She is currently free on $20,000 in bonds.

Lambert is the third teacher from that windswept, flat and treeless region to get into trouble the end of last year.

Last December, we brought you the story of Julie Ann Moore, an Amarillo grade school teacher accused of sex with a 15-year-old high school student during halftime of a high school football game. (Friday Night Lights storyline TK?)

Earlier this month, 25-year-old Patricia Jean Coone, at the time an Amarillo middle school \teacher, got popped selling Ecstasy to an undercover cop. Several times over a period of months, in fact. Since her specialty was science, we wonder if she was some kind of Walter White Wannabe.
