LOCKHART, TX – Check out the smile on this pretty face! It’s not just your average selfie, it’s actually a booking photo.

This 26-year-old very married anatomy teacher at Lockhart High School is accused of having an improper relationship with a 17-year-old student.

Lockhart School District, located 35 miles southeast of Austin, suspended Sarah Fowlkes, who had been with the school since 2014.

A tip from a school administrator led authorities to the teen boy who had allegedly been in contact with Fowlkes through messaging and in person.

If convicted, she’ll join a growing trend of attractive female teachers that can’t seem to keep things strictly academic with their students.  She’ll also be a convicted felon and possibly need to register as a sex offender.

So what’s with that smile? Maybe she’s envisioning all the internet comments asking, “where were teachers like that when I was in school?”

Cold hard facts indicate if “SHE” were a “HE” nobody would be smiling.
