Waleska Velasquez, from Miami, will probably never get to teach again thanks in great part to her one-year sexual affair with a 16-year old student from the Miami Jackson Senior High School.

The 29-year old special education teacher allegedly confessed to having sexual relations with the student for over a year; having trysts inside the school and the parking lot.  In addition,  Velasquez informed police she sent the student nude photos of herself and many gifts that included cash and a cell phone.

Miami officials were notified of the situation by The Department of Children and Families who had received an anonymous tip.  She is facing charges on three counts of having sex with a minor.
