A 24-year-old Iowa high school teacher arrested for allegedly having sεχual relations with her 17-year-old student is opening up about their trysts.
Mary Beth Haglin, a substitute English teacher at Washington High School in Cedar Rapids, showed Inside Edition the raunchy photos she sent to the student during their 6-month relationship.
Haglin turned herself in to authorities in July and was charged with sεχual exploitation of a minor. Speaking to Inside Edition, she said she still finds it hard to believe she did what she did.
“I never thought it would get this far and I apologize to each and every person I hurt,” she said.
But she claimed it was the student who seduced her.
“He would come into my classroom, grab a Post-It, write something and stick it to my desk on his way out,” she said. One read, “I love you so much, my empress.”
“He would always call me ‘my empress,'” she added.
