Janesville Teachers Admit To Sending Explicit Messages, Photos To Student

A school district investigation has revealed that two female teachers from Joseph Craig High School in Janesville, Wisconsin, engaged in inappropriate conduct with at least one student, including sending sexually explicit messages and photos via Snapchat. The teachers, Alexsia Saldaris and Jennifer Larson, have since resigned from their positions.

The investigation began when a teacher discovered photos of Saldaris in lingerie on a student’s cellphone. During a field trip between April 7 and April 9, Saldaris and Larson reportedly sent messages to the student, suggesting “cuddling” and involving another student in their “fun.”

Saldaris, a first-year teacher, also admitted to allowing the student to drive a district van in a parking lot and kissing the student while removing her shoes inside the vehicle. Additionally, she sent the student five images of herself in lingerie and other undergarments.

Larson, an 11-year veteran and advisor for the Wisconsin DECA, a youth leadership organization, confessed to sending messages “involving cuddling, flirting, and the implication of alcohol.”

Both teachers were placed on administrative leave on April 12, and their resignations were accepted by the district on April 22. The Janesville Police are now considering filing criminal charges related to the incidents.

The case has left the community of Janesville, a city of about 65,000 residents on the southern border of Wisconsin, in shock. As the school district concludes its investigation, local authorities are working to determine the appropriate course of action to ensure the safety and well-being of the students involved.
