An employee at a Phoenix school is facing a felony charge after police said she sent an inappropriate note to a 12-year-old boy and officers then discovered she had child pornography.

The investigation started in May when school administrators called police after they found the 19-year-old with a “romantic” note she intended to give to the preteen, court documents said.

Matias said she knew the child in the video and admitted to sending the video to a friend, police said.

“Hey, to be honest, I got a lot too (sic) say. But honestly (I don’t care) if I’m 19, you broke my heart anyways (sic),” said the note, according to court records. “I do actually miss you.

I miss you like hell.” The boy never got the letter.

Stephanie Matias was arrested on Thursday.

After the discovery, police decided to search Matias’ iCloud account, where they found a child porn video, investigators said.

Her bond was set at $10,000. Police declined to say which school Matias worked at.

After being taken into custody, she admitted to seeing the video on Snapchat and downloading it, court paperwork said.

Matias said she knew the child in the video and admitted to sending the video to a friend, police said.

She was booked into jail on one count of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Her bond was set at $10,000. Police declined to say which school Matias worked at.
