A substitute teacher in Carroll County was arrested Friday for multiple child abuse after school officials notified law enforcement.
Amelia Resller, 30, was charged with 19 child molestations after an investigation, one for each child in the second grade classroom at Mt. Zion Elementary School, the Daily Post’s news partner Fox 5 Atlanta reported.
The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office said investigators found Resller “committed indecent and immoral acts in the presence of school-age children.”
“It appears she was masturbating while the classroom was full of kids,” said Ashley Hulsey of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators said they uncovered evidence of the indecent act at the school, Fox reported 5.
“We got video evidence because she filmed and disseminated it herself, and we were able to get that evidence,” Hulsey said.

Detectives said they were made aware of the video when someone in the community saw it, became very concerned, and reported it to school officials.
Investigators speak to the students and parents to find out what the children may have seen.
The sheriff’s office released the following statement regarding the incident:
“We appreciate the Carroll County Schools’ commitment to the safety of their students as we were contacted immediately following the allegations and we will continue to work closely with them as the investigation continues.”
It was not immediately clear how long resller replacement teachers at Mt. Zion Elementary School or within the Carroll County School District.
