HOUSTON The victim of what authorities called an improper relationship with a former Humble High School teacher spoke out for the first time publicly about the ordeal.
It was totally like a curveball for me in my life, she said. I just want the truth to be out.
In March, authorities arrested former dance instructor Amanda Feenstra on a felony charge.
The victim said Feenstra used to shower her with compliments.
She was just like, you re a great dancer. You re so special.
It wasn t long, she said, until the dance instructor and the then 17-year-old student became more like friends.
We would hang out like we were on the same level.
But that all changed one night when she was sitting in Feenstra s car.
She talked about wanting to kiss me. And then she kissed me.
The kiss, she said, would lead to sex on multiple occasions in the school s dance room and at Feenstra s home when her husband was away.
I didn t have the tools or the wisdom to break it off.
But she tried to several months later. She said even after she graduated from high school, Feenstra wouldn t leave her alone and continued to stalk her. That s when she confided in another teacher about the relationship.
Authorities arrested Feenstra soon after.
Calls to Feenstra s attorney were not returned. The victim wants to make sure what happened to her never happens again.
I was manipulated like a puppet. I don t want her to get away with it.
