A female teacher has admitted physical abusing a 15-year-old boy in a classroom.
Nicole Woods, 55, took advantage of the male student at a college in Melbourne’s west and pleaded guilty to two counts of physical penetration of a minor on Monday.
Her victim was incapable to finish school and his friends say he suffers ongoing mental ordeal.
The Department of Education and Training Victoria said they took ‘incidents of inappropriate conduct very seriously’.
‘As this matter involving a former employee is currently before the courts, it would be inappropriate to comment further,’ the department said.
Woods is currently on bail and will face court again in December.
She could face up to 15 years in prison.
