A 27-yr-old kindergarten school teacher was arrested on Monday for allegedly having sex with aÂ student. The teacher, Sara Styles, was released on bail and was quoted as she left the courthouse saying, â€œI love him, and I want to marry him.â€ The studentâ€™s name wasÂ not immediately released due to the circumstances of the incident. Â
â€œI love him, and he loves me,â€ saidÂ Styles in an interview with a local Oklahoma newspaper. â€œHe makes me so happy, I want to marry him. I donâ€™t care about the age difference, 20 years from now what will it matter? He has already said he will wait for me if I have to go to jail. We met on the playground after school about two months ago, and itâ€™s been a whirlwind romance ever since. We never had sex on school grounds, so I donâ€™t see what the big deal is.â€
â€œI donâ€™t see this case going anywhere, personally. I mean, Iâ€™m pretty sure that the kid knew what he was doing. Plus, Miss Styles is reportedly a very good teacher, Iâ€™m sure she showed him some good tricks,â€ said Police Chief Charles Gordon. â€œIf anything, the kid should get a medal. All the officers were giving him high fives when he came by the police station. I mean shit, did you see Miss Styles? Sheâ€™s smokinâ€™Â hot. I wish I was so lucky when I was a kid. All my teachers were old nuns.â€
Superintendent JoelÂ Olsen of the Broken Arrow School District said that Miss Styles met the student in question during an after school field day sponsored by the high school.
â€œThe student Miss Styles is involved with is a 18-year-old senior, who was volunteering during the field day activities.Â While itâ€™s certainly not illegal for a 25-year-old woman to have sex with a 18-year-old, it is illegal for a teacher to have sex with a student, whether that student is one of her own or not,â€ said Olsen. â€œWeâ€™re taking the matter very seriously, and Miss Styles has been put on leave with pay, per her union contract.â€
