Report: US teacher's aide sent love letters to boyReport: US teacher's aide at troubled school sent love letters to 11-year-old boy
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Authorities are investigating allegations that a 50-year-old teacher's aide sent love letters to an 11-year-old boy attending the Los Angeles-area school where two teachers have been charged with molesting students.
The Los Angeles Times newspaper says the mother of a student came to officials at Miramonte Elementary School in 2009 to report that the female aide had written several letters, including one that said the boy gave her chills.
The mother told the Times that she met with school officials and the teacher's aide acknowledged writing the letters.
A school district spokeswoman says the woman no longer works for the school system.
Mark Berndt and Martin Springer are facing charges that they committed lewd acts on children in their Miramonte classrooms.
