A former substitute teacher is accused of sending nude photos of herself to a teenage student.

Tiffany Michelle Amos, 25, was working as a substitute teacher at Westfield High School in March when she met a 16-year-old boy and exchanged cell phone numbers with him, court documents state. The teen told Spring ISD police that they had communicated by phone calls and text messages when Amos reportedly sent him nude photos of herself.

According to court documents, Amos admitted to an officer that she sent the nude photos when she knew the boy was just 16 years old. She also stated that she had sex with the boy at her apartment on his 17th birthday and a few times after that. The officer reportedly found nude photos of Amos during a search of her cell phone.

Spring ISD issued the following statement:

    "The Spring ISD Police Department investigated an allegation involving a substitute teacher, Tiffany Amos, and a Westfield High School student. The Spring ISD administration determined that there was an inappropriate relationship between the substitute and the student that warranted her immediate termination and further investigation. The results of that investigation indicate that the incident involved only one student. Those results were submitted to the Harris County District Attorney's office, which accepted felony charges for Online Solicitation of a Minor.

    The safety of our students is of the highest importance. The criminal history and references of job applicants, including those who apply to serve as substitutes, are routinely checked before they are hired. The district takes every allegation seriously and with the Spring ISD police department, will always conduct a thorough investigation."

Amos has been charged with online solitication of a minor. Bail has been set at $5,000.
