Sarah Fowlkes, a married high school biology teacher in Texas, beamed a smile on her face as she posed for her mugshot after police charged her with having a sexual tryst with a 17-year-old student.

The 26-year-old was placed on suspension from her position as an anatomy and physiology teacher at Lockhart High School after surrendering to police Monday mere hours after celebrating her birthday with her husband, the Houston Chronicle reported.

The smiling blonde teacher allegedly engaged in “sexual content with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire” of the student, the Daily Star reported.

Detectives launched the investigation on March 10 after receiving a tip from a school administrator. The probe led them to the boy, who had been in touch with Fowlkes, cops said.

“Their contact was of a sexual nature,” police said.

“Lockhart parents entrust their children to us every day, and it is something we do not take lightly,” schools Superintendent Susan Bohn expressed in a statement.

“Student safety is the district’s most urgent priority. As soon as we learned of the report, we acted swiftly to involve law enforcement and CPS to conduct a thorough investigation,” she added.

According to the school’s website, Sarah Fowlkes, who was married in 2013, started working at Lockhart High in September.

“I have very high expectations as a teacher as well as of my students, and I hope that this will be a formula for achievement,” Fowlkes wrote on the site, according to The Sun.

The school has since removed her name from the site.
