A St. Catharines teacher has been charged following allegations she sent sexually inappropriate material to a group of sixteen & seventeen year old students.
Forty-one-year-old Stephanie Colangelo has also been suspended from Denis Morris High School.
Rumours had been circulating about this teacher for a few days now, in fact students had been sharing explicit videos amongst themselves.
Many of them said if they didn’t see the videos for themselves, they would not have believed it.
Stephanie Colangelo was known as a religion teacher who was well-liked by her students.
That reputation became tarnished after rumours began swirling around the teacher.
Students say she taught grades 9 through 12 both religion and business studies.
Niagara Regional Police Service began an investigation the following day.
This afternoon, police charged Colangelo with with making sexually explicit material available to minors, luring a child to commit sexual exploitation and luring a child to make child pornography.
Colangelo is being held in custody pending a bail hearing tomorrow morning in St Catharines.
