CALIFORNIA – Tracy Miller was caught after a student told administrators at Logan High School, in West Virginia, that he had pictures of her saved on his phone.
The student later showed them to officers, who immediately hauled Ms Miller in for questioning.
The 27-year-old admitted that she had possibly sent images to as many as five students between March and July this year, although she could not remember how many she had sent.
She has since been suspended without pay.
The school district told news channel, WSAZ: “We are dealing with the situation by following county policy governing employee code of conduct. The teacher in question has been suspended at this time.”
Miller, who started working at the school in January, was charged with three counts of distributing obscene matter to a minor.
She has been released on bail, as investigators try to establish whether there were more students who had received the naked pictures.
