New Boston teacher arrested for alleged relations with a student
By Kenny Mitchell
New Boston police arrested a NBHS teacher Tuesday morning on charges of having an inappropriate relationship with a student.
Zach Moody was a first-year coach and teacher at New Boston and was set to leave at the end of the school year. The 40-year-old Moody was certified to teach Social Studies, but according to the Texas Education Agency, his certification was set to expire in July.
Moody was in the process of being booked in to the Bi-State Jail as of 3 p.m. this afternoon.
New Boston ISD Superintendent Dr. Rose Mary Neshyba sent out a notification to all parents in the district this morning making them aware of Moody’s arrest.
The letter states, “The District will take every step to cooperate with law enforcement and notification will be made to the State Board of Educator Certification. The District has been provided with very little information about the charges at this point in the investigation.”
Dr. Neshyba goes on to say that the district strives to maintain a learning environment that is safe and conducive to learning, and that the District takes every measure possible to ensure the safety of its students.
Parents are urged to contact their school’s counselor or administrator if they have a concern about their child.
