UPDATE: February 19, 2014, 1:30 p.m. -- A former teacher accused of having an improper relationship with a student now has turned himself into police.

Marcos Garcia was also a football and weight lifting coach at Salado high school.

He turned himself into police today.

A warrant for Garcia's arrest was issued on Tuesday.

According to the District Attorney's Office, the former teacher is charged with having an improper relationship with a 16-year-old female student.

Last week, a parent of a 16-year student notified the school district that texts had been exchanged between the student and teacher.

The girl and other witnesses were interviewed and last Thursday, Garcia resigned.

His bond has been set at $35,000.

 


 

(UPDATE) -- An arrest warrant has been issued for former teacher Marcos Garcia. He's being charged with having an improper relationship with a 16-year-old girl. 

"We are going to be meeting with all the employees in the district and talking about what things we can do to prevent future incidents like this," said Salado superintendent Michael Novotny. "One of the things we will be talking about is the possibility of some training with students and that when they suspect something to report it immediately."

Garcia taught math at the junior and high school. Along with coaching football and weight lifting.

The allegations of an improper relationship were brought forward by the girl's parent. Garcia and the teacher had been texting about topics that were not school related, says Novotny.

Garcia said in his resignation letter, "I am deeply sorry for all the wrongs & inconveniences I have brought upon my employees & the people who have hired me & put trust in me."
