ROUND ROCK, TEXAS: A Texas high school teacher who once became her school district's "Teacher of the Year" has fallen from grace after being arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a student.

An affidavit obtained by KVUE-TV alleged how 36-year-old Randi Chaverria, a family and consumer science teacher at Round Rock High School, had sexual contact with a male student multiple times during the 2019 fall semester.

The alleged victim told authorities that the teacher had performed oral sex on him at least twice in the month of October in his classroom. Text messages exchanged between Chaverria and the student appear to back up his accusations, according to authorities.

Chaverria, who has since resigned from her position as a teacher, now faces a charge of improper relationship between educator and student. The school district first learned about the possible inappropriate behavior on November 18, Round Rock High School principal Matt Groff wrote in a letter to families.

"Once notified, the teacher, who had elected to take leave before administration received the report, was immediately reported to the District's Human Resources Department and law enforcement and not permitted to return to campus," Groff wrote, according to KXAN-TV.

The case had also been reported to the State Board for Educator Certification, Groff added. According to the school district's website, Chaverria was a decorated educator before the incident. She was also awarded Secondary Teacher of the Year in May this year.

Chaverria also lead the "Adopt-A-Child" community service project, according to the release that announced her award. The project saw high school students bringing holiday gifts for elementary school students in need.

However, the school district has promised to fully cooperate with law enforcement in the probe.

"Safety is the top priority of Round Rock High School and Round Rock ISD. Ensuring a safe and secure learning environment requires a partnership between students, parents, campus and district staff, as well as law enforcement," Groff wrote.

Chaverria has not yet entered a plea agreement. She turned herself in to Williamson County Jail Tuesday morning and was released after posting bond.
