VAN ALSTYNE, Texas -- A former Van Alstyne substitute teacher is accused of sending inappropriate pictures to a minor.

According to a warrant, 36-year-old Kristen Jackson intentionally sent harmful material to an underage student in June. Jackson allegedly used Snapchat to share the photos.

Jackson was arrested Monday, then released on a $7,500 bond  in connection with the misdemeanor offense.

Van Alstyne Independent School District Superintendent David Brown posted this message to parents on Facebook late Tuesday afternoon:

We had a substitute teacher who has been accused of sending inappropriate pictures to a student. This summer, the Van Alstyne Police Department made us aware of this situation, and we immediately removed this person from our substitute eligibility list. The safety of our students is our number one priority. We will continue to take all steps to ensure that VAISD is a safe place for all students.
