At 25, maths tutor Erin McAuliffe should be on top of the world and forging ahead in her career as a teacher.
Instead, the one time golden girl, a former teacher at Rocky Mount Preparatory School in North Carolina, is behind bars.
She's been formally charged with three counts of sexual activity with a student and one of indecent liberties with a minor.
Police said Erin reportedly slept with three boys – two 17, one 16 – in a location away from school.
"We have been fully cooperative with local law enforcement during the course of their handling of this matter," the school said in a statement.
Erin's LinkedIn profile indicates she had been working after hours, offering "after-school tutoring to help struggling students improve their critical thinking and problem-solving skills."
