Ex-Montana teacher gets to 2 years for sexual misconduct

A 36-year-old teacher in East Glacier was sentenced to federal prison Wednesday for sexually abusing one of her eighth-grade students.

Sierra Shawnee Taylor, also known as Sierra Schildt, was sentenced to two years in prison and five years of supervised release for twice having intercourse with a student during the 2014-2015 school year.

Taylor taught a mixed-grade class at East Glacier Elementary School. The male student was 14 at the time.

Taylor gave the student notes “expressing her feelings for him,” which the boy’s mother found and retained, according to filings by the government.
