GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Police say a teacher at a Goodyear elementary school has been arrested for alleged sexual misconduct with a student.

Goodyear police say 27-year-old Brittany Zamora was taken into custody Thursday morning.

She's a sixth-grade teacher at Las Brisas Academy Elementary School.

Police say they were notified by the school's principal Wednesday night.

They say the allegations were brought to the principal by the parent of the 13-year-old victim, who reported finding text messages between the teacher and the boy.

According to the Arizona Republic, Zamora had sex with the boy in both the classroom and in her car since Feb. 1.

They also traded sexually explicit texts, the Republic reported, and she also sent naked pictures of herself to him.

It's unclear if Zamora has a lawyer yet.
