Terrie Rhodes teaches seventh-grade English at Fort Settlement Middle School in Fort Bend ISD and, if what police say is true, she's a female Humbert Humbert.
She was arrested this morning for having indecency with a child/sexual contact and improper relationship between an educator and child.
She's also a San Antonio Spurs fan, according to the bio on the school's site:
Hi! My name is Terrie Rhodes and I am excited about teaching at Fort Settlement Middle School. I am a 7th grade English Language Arts teacher and look forward to an eye-opening year. I am originally from San Antonio, Texas and am a die-hard Spurs fan! Go Spurs Go!
My husband and I have three beautiful children. And in my spare time I enjoy reading, playing outside with my family, and cooking new recipes. If you have a really good gumbo recipe, please feel free to share it with me.
Rhodes, 45, was jailed on a $30,000 bond.
KTRK reporter Kevin Quinn has been live-tweeting a FBSO press conference on the case. He reports that the victim's mother discovered "inappropriate texts" from Rhodes to her daughter in 2009 and that "Deputies say it's possible at least two other students touched inappropriately. looking for more alleged victims" from Rhodes' time at Lake Olympia Middle School.
