Another Texas teacher is accused of having an illegal sexual relationship with a student.

Alisha Feuerbacher, 39, was arrested Thursday and charged with improper relationship between educator and student, a second-degree felony punishable by two to 20 years in prison.

The former Lovejoy Independent School District teacher was booked into Collin County Jail and released the same day on a $35,000 bond.

Authorities say the offense occurred in January 2023, after she left Lovejoy.

Feuerbacher worked as a special education aide at Lovejoy High School from August 2021 until May 2022, according to an email sent to parents Thursday by Superintendent Katie Kordel.

“To our knowledge, the alleged offense does not involve Lovejoy ISD,” Kordel said.

Online records show that since July 2022, Feuerbacher has worked for Fusion Academy, a Michigan-based company that offers one-to-one teaching at locations across the country.

Feuerbacher currently lives in McKinney. Prior to Lovejoy, she worked at Frisco ISD and Prosper ISD.

State Board for Educator Certification records show Feuerbacher received her Texas teacher certificate in 2018, but she is currently under review by the Texas Education Agency.

Social media accounts show Feuerbacher is married with at least one child.

Texas Penal Code defines an “improper relationship” as a primary or secondary school employee engaging in either sexual contact with a student of any age or sexually explicit communication with anyone younger than 17 years of age.

Last June, another Lovejoy High School teacher was caught sending sexually suggestive messages to a male student via Instagram.

Ray Cooper, nicknamed by students “Creepy Cooper,” was allowed to resign. He received a reprimand, but his teaching certificate is still valid.
