Obsessed Teacher Sent 11-Year-Old Student 2400 Texts
[su_right_ad]The Pennsylvania teacher has been arrested after telling the student she wanted to run away with her.
Geraldine Alcorn, 28, resigned from Beechwood Elementary School on March 2, after school officials “were made aware of concerns that a teacher had developed an improper attachment” with a student, WPXI reports.
Alcorn allegedly sent the young girl more than 2,400 text messages, where she expressed a “deep love” for the student and talked about adopting her and running away.
School officials became aware of the inappropriate relationship in February. The child’s mother had found numerous messages from Alcorn on her daughter’s iPod. She also found handwritten letters entitled: “Things Ms. Alcorn and I can do,” “What we can do,” and “When we can do it.”
It was later discovered that Alcorn went as far as to visiting the child’s home without permission from the mother. Neighbors told WPXI that they would see Alcorn on the child’s front porch, but assumed she was the girl’s aunt or relative.
Alcorn, who taught many of the child’s classes, is also accused of bringing the student to her own home in Bloomfield, according to Pittsburgh police.
Even after her resignation, the obsessed teacher continued reaching out to the student. A criminal complaint stated that Alcorn put gifts and letters in the girl’s locker. She also encrypted her phone number on the girl’s math worksheet.
