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."

The state claimed Friday that there is more than one victim in this case.
Zamora's bond was set at $250,000. During the initial appearance Zamaor said she would "love to go home to my husband."
Her next court date, a status hearing, is set for March 29. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 2.
