KILLEEN, TX — A former aide from Gateway High School has been arrested for allegedly engaging in an improper relationship with a student.

Thirty seven-year-old Louisa Theresa Hernandez allegedly had an improper relationship with a male student during the 2018-2019 school year.

She has been charged with an improper relationship between educator and student. She was arrested and transported to the Killeen City Jail.

The district says Hernandez was first hired in 2017 as an aide but left briefly before returning in January 2019.

The district says Hernandez has since been terminated, and the district will assist in the police investigation going forward.

Superintendent Dr. John Craft said the district will support the strongest possible legal action.

“We are working closely with Killeen police in this matter, and if the allegations prove true, we will support the strongest possible legal action against this employee.”
