'Would love to go home to my husband': Goodyear teacher accused of molesting student

Brittany Zamora is facing eight counts of sexual misconduct with a child, two counts of child molestation and one count of transmitting obscene material to a minor.

PHOENIX - A West Valley teacher is facing several charges after she was arrested Thursday for alleged sexual misconduct with a 13-year-old student.

Brittany Zamora, a sixth-grade teacher at Las Brisas Academy in Goodyear, appeared in court for the first time Friday. She's facing eight counts of sexual misconduct with a child, two counts of child molestation and one count of transmitting obscene material to a minor.

The allegations against the former "Teacher of the Year" were reported to police by the elementary school's principal. Police said the 13-year-old boy's parent found text messages between Zamora and her son "indicating sexual activity."

According to police documents, the parents discovered the texts with a parental app that tracks kids' phone activity remotely.
