A court appearance for a teacher accused of having inappropriate relationships with students was postponed Monday morning.

Former Goal Academy teacher Susan Christie is accused of having inappropriate relationships with three students. Goal Academy is an online school generally for high school students who have trouble in a formal school setting.

A mandatory restraining order was also issued against her. It prevents her from seeing a victim who spoke out in the affidavit.

After allegations emerged, Pueblo police searched through school computers and cell phones to make sure there were no more students reportedly victimized by Christie.

According to her arrest affidavit, investigators believe she had a sexual relationship with one student. She also was “sexting” other students on her school issued cell phone and would use her school issued computer to have sexual conversations with students via Skype. Hundreds of text messages were sent to one male student that goal officials called “very racy and sexually explicit.” Another student told police she was the “creepy pedophile type.”

Christie was arrested late last year for sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust. She was later released on a $50,000 bond.

We'll let you know when the court appearance is rescheduled.

    Im sure the truth will come out and she will be dealt with accordingly, they should also check her personal phone as im sure they would find explicit photos there as well.

    People are very quick to judge. The facts of this are not true at all. Nothing has been found and they are begging for something to come up. Small towns do some terrible things. I just hope when this is over the truth comes out and that these articles and news stories apologize. Sorry little town, it's a same.

    "Last week, Pueblo police are now searching..." should read: Last week Pueblo police were searching.... I disagree that GOAL is for students that have "trouble" in a formal high school setting. Often these are students who are gifted and prefer to work at an excellerated pace and take course that challenge them more than a traditional high school can. Many of the students are required, through no fault of their own, to work full time to support their families. I feel GOAL should be commended for keeping such a close eye on their instructors that they were able to notice what was going on between this "teacher" and her students and brought that information to the notice of the proper authorities. As we have observed in the current PA scandal, this is often not the case as many institutions are more concerned with image than justice.

    I have two young boys and nothing about this case is funny. Just because she is a female does not make her any less of a sex offender.
