A South Texas high school teacher is the subject of an investigation after naked photos of the female educator surfaced on online.

Officials in the Texas border city of Eagle Pass are trying to determine how her nude pictures ended up on social media and into the hands of students last month, according to Breitbart News.

School officials were alerted after several images of a fully nude high school teacher spread like wildfire on social media, according to Lupita Fuentes, President of the Eagle Pass ISD Board.

Fuentes said the teacher, whose identity hasn’t been released was placed on suspension while the investigation determines who posted  and if any other violations had occurred.

The scandal follows a similar incident back in February in South Carolina after a student was charged with allegedly swiping his teacher’s cell phone and sharing naked photos she had taken, meant for her husband on social media.

Leigh Anne Arthur, a teacher in Union County, South Carolina, was forced to resign as a result of the images leaked online. Police charged the 16-year-old student with computer crimes for gaining access to Arthur’s cell without permission and aggravated voyeurism counts, which stemmed from copying and sharing the photos online, WSPA-TV reported.

Furthermore, the teen had also boasted about stealing the photos to Arthur before posting the images on social media.

“The student who actually took my phone along with the pictures turned around and told me your day of reckoning is coming,” Arthur said.

Union City School officials had blamed the 13-year veteran for keeping her mobile phone unlocked and had told her to step down from her teaching post.

A petition by parents and student began circulating asking her McArthur to teach again.
