Like? Florida teacher charged with soliciting students for sex on Facebook

Since at least the early 1960s, the state of Florida has quite obviously been home to the worst elementary and secondary school teachers in the United States. The Daily Caller has amply documented this indisputable fact again and again.

The latest teacher in the parade of awfulness is Stevie Glasspool, a now-fired charter school teacher in the Sunshine State who allegedly used Facebook to ask at least four students to have sex with her, reports CBS Miami.

Like so many other teachers charged with getting busy — or trying to get busy — with students, Glasspool was an English teacher. She had taught at Mavericks Charter High School in Pompano Beach before she was sacked in May.

Glasspool, 31, allegedly propositioned students ranging in age from 15 to 17, notes USA Today.

Reports suggest that the lovelorn English teacher appears to have been unsuccessful in efforts at seduction.

On Thursday, Glasspool was arrested on a single charge of soliciting a child for unlawful sexual conduct using a computer. She is currently sitting in jail in Palm Beach County. Bail has been set at $25,000.

CBS Miami was able to identify one of the students allegedly targeted by Glasspool.

“Throughout the whole entire year she’d kind of like, flirt, so I figured this would happen,” said a confident Christian O’Neill.

“The sexual comments came out about how I want you to sleep over, I want you to give it to me,” the 17-year-old student added.

The related Facebook messages were bawdy. “Your body is amazing,” read one. “You should spend the night,” said another. “You will be graded on your performance,” said still another.

Drugs were also on offer, according to the Facebook missives. “I have marijuana for us to smoke,” Glasspool allegedly wrote.

O’Neill said he was flattered by the attention, at first. But when he heard the scuttlebutt that Glasspool had supposedly propositioned a 15-year-old boy, well, that was just beyond the pale.

“When I found out that she also contacted a 15 year old kid, that’s when it kind of got brought to my attention that, ‘Oh my goodness this girl has something not right in her head,’” O’Neill told CBS Miami.

The teenager added that Glasspool acted desperate when he played it cool and didn’t respond immediately to her Facebook dispatches.

“It would be, ‘Hi, Hey, Hi, Hi. Why aren’t you answering me? Are you mad at me? What did I say?’ It was just pathetic,” O’Neill said.
