Baby-faced suspect: The youthful educator allegedly had sex with a 17-year-old from Cardinal McCarrick High School in New Jersey between May 4 and May 30.
Ms Grupico lost her job when the school closed down because of financial troubles at the end of the school year in June.
She is being held at the Middlesex county Jail in North Brunswick while awaiting a bail hearing.
When she was not busy teaching history, the 24-year-old educator apparently spent her free time perfecting the art of the selfie.
Grupico’s Pinterest page is filled with dozens of self-portraits depicting the bespectacled brunette mugging and pouting for the camera in her classroom.
