A new teacher who resigned at a NewPort News, Virginia high school should have thought twice before sharing breast implant photos with her students, citing a Huffington Post report.
Melissa Kidd, 34, faces a criminal and internal investigation over allegations that she acted improperly by showing at least three students — maybe a fourth — ages 16-18, before-and-after pictures of her breasts regarding surgery for enlargement.

Reportedly, the teacher showed students the illicit implant pics in March. She promptly resigned from her position when the teens came forward with allegations that she shared “photos of her nude and exposed breasts” using her Apple iPhone, while on Woodside High School’s property.
According to an affidavit from a circuit court, one student also claims seeing photos of the teacher’s bare breasts and private parts. Michelle Price, a spokesperson with Newport News Public Schools, released additional information about the matter on Monday.
“The school principal began his investigation in cooperation with our Human Resources department, and the Newport News Police Department and Child Protective Services were notified. During the investigation process, the teacher tendered her resignation and is no longer an employee.”
Kidd worked as a teacher with the school for less than a year. Records show she was employed from August of last year to April. She was hired as a business teacher in the career and technical education department.
Not surprisingly, parents are outraged over news the teacher made a conscious decision to reveal implant pictures of her breasts. Angela Leslie, whose child attends the Virginia school, is holding out that the allegations against the teacher are not true. (Note: her child is not one of the aforementioned students who claim to have been exposed to the naked images.)
“To hear something like that is really disturbing. To me that’s pornographic, it’s not OK. It’s not OK. I hope it’s not true.”
At this time, police investigators are probing the woman’s smartphone. According to the search warrant obtained for that purpose, they were not successful in retrieving all content of the phone. Nevertheless, sources say officers will seek a second warrant for a higher level of retrieval.
Meanwhile, if the teacher’s implant photos were found to have been shown to the students, she could be charged with “taking indecent liberties with a child by a person in a supervisory role,” which is a felony.
