Tuesday, Officer T Lopez, while working off duty security at Central High School, was informed by Central High School Administration about an inappropriate relationship between a Teacher’s Aide and a student.


The mother of an 18 year old male student spoke with Central High School Administration about her concern of a possible relationship between 43 year old Teacher’s Aide Monica Way and her son. The mother became concerned after reading text message conversations between Way and her son on her son’s cell phone.

Detective Jeremy Cannady responded to Central High School to conduct an investigation of the allegation. During the investigation, Detective Cannady learned Monica Way had a sexual relationship with the 18 year old student.

After the investigation, Detective Cannady applied for a warrant for the arrest of Monica Way for Improper Relationship between Educator and Student. Way turned herself in on the warrant at 5:38 am Wednesday morning at the Tom Green County Jail.
