Middle School Teacher Arrested For Sending Illicit Photos To Teenage Student

Jennifer Glidden, a 50-year-old sixth-grade teacher in Manchester, New Hampshire, was arrested on Friday, December 7, for allegedly sending inappropriate emails to a teenage student under the age of 16-years-old.
According to reports, Glidden — who was a teacher at Parkside Middle School in New Hampshire — allegedly sent more than 100 inappropriate emails to an unidentified teenage student between November 2 and December 4. Authorities say that the emails “were sexual in nature.”
Glidden — who lives in Exeter, New Hampshire — was arrested at her home on the afternoon of Friday, December 7. Police say that Parkside Middle School officials alerted the school resource officer on Tuesday, December 4, that there was possible inappropriate activity between the teacher and student.
She has since been charged with certain use of computer services prohibited and was released on $2,500 personal recognizance bail.  Her next court appearance in the Hillsborough County Superior Court-North is scheduled for Thursday, December 20.
Police have asked anyone with further information about Glidden or the case to contact authorities immediately.
As for why there has been such a significant increase in instances of teachers having sexual relationships with students, researchers believe that technology is to blame.
According to a report from the Texas Education Association, smartphones make easy for teachers to privately text and talk with students and also make it possible for teachers and students to share explicit images.
SESAME (Stop Educator Sexual Abuse Misconduct & Exploitation) President Terri Miller echoed that sentiment, stating “before cell phones, we knew who our kids were talking to” but today, “kids have their own phones, they’re taking them to bed, and parents need to watch more.”
Glidden has been one of many teachers to be charged for inappropriate conduct. Over the course of just a few months, teachers across the United States have been charged, tried, and convicted of various abuse and sex crimes.
The list goes on to include 22-year-old Oklahoma science teacher Hunter Day, 28-year-old teacher Megan Kotarski, 23-year-old history teacher Michelle Schiffer, 29-year-old Alyssia Marie Reddy, special education teacher Jordan Ondish and 28-year-old Samantha Fitzpatrick have all been allegedly carrying on inappropriate relationships with their students.
Most recently, teachers such as 29-year-old Haylie Smart, 25-year-old Alaina Ferguson, 26-year-old Amy Nowaczyk, and 32-year-old Laura Bucy were arrested and charged for similar crimes.
