12-Year-Old Girl Caught Filming Gym Teacher in the Shower

OMG 33

Kids do all kinds of stupid things. Back in my day, my friends and I would stand on the highway overpass and throw eggs at the cars. It never occurred to us that someone might get distracted from egg splattering on their window and perhaps get into an accident. And now there's just so many more ways for kids to get into trouble. I can only imagine the conversation one mom must have had to have with her 12-year-old daughter -- who was caught filming a female teacher taking a shower.

The girl, who went to middle school in Omaha, Nebraska, has admitted filming the female physical education teacher with her cellphone camera as she showered in the girls' locker room. One can only imagine why she did this. Did she plan to show it to her friends? Put it online? Or ... was it for her own personal use?

Imagine this mom. She's got to have three serious conversations with her kid at once. One, the uses and abuses of technology. Two, the right to privacy. And three ... honey, is there something you'd like to tell me? You know, are you, um, attracted to girls?

The girl was arrested for intrusion of privacy. As a 12-year-old, she'll probably have this incident wiped from her record if she stays out of trouble. The school has said they'll decide what punishment will be meted out.

But what does mom do? How do you punish and open up a conversation about sexuality at the same time? Was this even a sexual thing? She's 12 years old -- maybe, maybe not. Could have just been funny to her. But some 12-year-olds are much more mature. She could have been genuinely curious and genuinely attracted to the teacher. Or is she just a serious brat who planned to spread this video around?

All I know is that I'm sooooo glad I'm not a teen in today's world, what with all of the cellphone cameras around. Or a teacher for that matter. For sure I wouldn't shower in school these days!

What do you think this girl was doing? How would you handle it if it was your child?

Sounds to me like she was planning on humiliating the teacher with the video. Kids can be so cruel, and I bet her friends were in on the idea too... she just happened to get caught red handed...

Why was the gym teacher showering in the locker room?

What workingmama said. I'm sure it was some dumb mean-girl shit. Kids in schools are horrible today.

I think there is something else going on here. Like the gym teacher suggested she do it? I have never heard of a gym teacher showering at school. Think about that. It's not appropriate. Any legit teacher of kids in this age group knows that's asking for trouble. And now there is trouble.

Two 8 year old girls on my son's buss bullyed a boy into tears and recorded it . You ask me its all about brats. Today a kid exposed his penis on the buss and grabed himself infront of everyone. THIS bein grade school not even jr high. Today parents are to busy being the Cool mom or dad and let them do and see what they want.AND sadly for the parents who do take care of their childern have to deal with the backlash of what these other kids are like at school. They see what other kids do and start doin it. Eather way im not sayin she was a brat. Hell even the option of wonderment of the older female body could be in play. Perhaps the gym teacher is pretty and built good and the girl recorded out of wonderment . Or to be a brat... seems to always point to the crueler intentions these days ;(

Why the hell do 12 year olds have cell phones, anyways?!?!?! My 15 year old daughter doesn't even have a cell phone!!!

I AGREE WITH GIVING THESE TEENS CELL PHONES... I understand if they would need it in case of an emergency however they are using it for stupid reasons.. My daughter wants a phone and I told her when she can pay for it she can have it.. and I don't want her to work while she is in high school so most likely she won't have one until she is in college. I'm just saying....

I am kind of curious as to why a teacher would be showering at the school myself. It seems completely inappropriate, male or female. There's something icky about a teacher, who is a full-grown adult, taking a shower in the same place where children do. I certainly wouldn't want my child going to a school where there was a chance he or she would encounter a naked adult. =o/

As far as the girl, I agree with most others. She was probably doing it with cruel intentions. And yes, @Kimberly Silva Smith, I agree. My teenagers do not have cell phones anymore either because they got caught with a picture of a naked girl in a text and got suspended from school. Teenagers (and younger nowadays) will find a way to get into trouble with almost anything!

At my school every locker had an individual changing cubicle and shower, there would be nothing wrong with a teacher showering in the locker room. And this was a school built in the 50s I believe. What if the teacher had somewhere to go after school and was sweaty from the day? But duh the stir obviously blame the adult I forgot. Cause kids are perfect and nobody can shower.
