LOUISVILLE, KY – A biology teacher in Kentucky has resigned after cops found her giving a student some private lessons in anatomy.

Carrie Shafer, a teacher at DuPont Manual High School in Louisville, was found by police Friday night inside a car and sharing beer with a 17-year-old student.

The 38-year-old and the teen also were partially undressed, police said. Evidence of contraceptive use was visible near the vehicle.

“There were some articles found that appeared to have been from a sexual act — like some condoms and some wet wipes that were on the outside of the vehicle believed to have been thrown from that vehicle,” Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell told WAVE 3 News in Louisville.

Shafer, who taught anatomy and physiology, was cited with a misdemeanor for unlawful transaction with a minor.

Sexual consent in Kentucky is 16, and at the time of the incident police were not aware she was a teacher.

Shafer, who resigned Sunday, could face a felony charge because of her role as an educator.

A new law in Kentucky makes it illegal for a person in “a position of authority or special trust” to engage in sexual activity with someone under 18, Louisville’s Courier-Journal reported.

The teacher was also ticketed for parking in a handicap space.

Shafer’s students were quick to defend the teacher, who had been at Manual High since 2007.

“She’s a good person at heart, and you can really tell that in her classes,” Kyle Peterson told WAVE 3. “And she cares about her students.”

Manual High School issued a statement Tuesday assuring parents the school would find a replacement for Shafer as quickly as possible.

“This is certainly not the kind of publicity Manual wants,” Manual High School principal Larry Wooldridge said.

Shafer was a sponsor of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes group, which consisted of nearly 40 students.

FCA was very saddened to learn of the charges being brought against Carrie Shafer,” the organization said in a statement Tuesday. “We are praying for everyone involved that healing and God’s redemptive power will be demonstrated.”

Shafer will be arraigned March 31, according to the Jefferson Circuit Court clerk’s office.

    I have no problem with her being with the 17 year old student, and the beer really doesnt bother me either, but I do have a problem with her parking in a handicappe spot. Lets face it, Americans are repressed sexually, now I dont mean 14/15 year olds, but guys enlist in the military at 17 so........... Had the student been a female then and the teacher was a male, yep then I would have a problem, and yes I do live by double standards, lol.

    I give her an A+ for Stupidity!
    Terrible thing to get involved with your students and she is yet,...another married woman!! Didn't mention her hubby or kids?? Makes you wonder how many other young boys she messed around with, by them taking up for her. Sadder still is she was a sponsor of the Christian Athletes Grp. I worked in the school system for 16 yrs, and yes, we had a coach that was arrested for messing around with one of his students. I just don't get it. It's sickening. She should NEVER be allowed to teach anywhere again.

    wish i had a teacher as good looking as her haha but seriously, this isnt right. teacher/student relationships should remain a schoolboy fantasy, not reality

    So she tried to make anatomy class a "Show and Tell," minus the "Tell.." but got caught instead.
    No wonder kids growing up these days are so messed up and confused: note some of the students' feeble attempts to defend her actions.
