Middle-School teacher LaShawn Simmons is facing charges of having sex with underage students, who came to her for help on math homework at Beverly Hills Intermediate School in Houston, Texas (video below).

According to the Houston Chronicle, Simmons resigned from her teaching job when she was confronted about the sex scandal in January, but is now being criminally charged.

Authorities claim that Simmons allegedly had sex with four students and was discovered when one of the students' parents found explicit Facebook messages that Simmons had sent.

Police then found nude photos and explicit text messages that Simmons allegedly sent to other students.

None of the male students names have been released because of their ages, but are thought to be her former students.

One of the alleged victims told KHOU-TV that she sent him pictures of her "private parts" years ago when he was still in middle school.

"Some stuff happened around the 8th grade. She sent me a couple of text messages, that was about it," the teen said. "Like wow, what kind of person would send me this? An adult, and I’m a child."

Police found more naked pictures of her alleged victims on Simmons' phone.

Simmons has been charged with sexual assault of a child, discovery of child pornography in her possession, two counts of improper relationship between an educator and a student and online solicitation of a minor.
