A 33-year-old teacher in the Norristown School District is accused of having a sexual relationship and exchanging "sexts" with one of her 8th grade students.
An investigation into the relationship between Jessica Streeper and a 14-year-old student began after Norristown Police received an anonymous tip.
Investigators say that the 8th grade Eisenhower Science and Technology Leadership Academy math teacher and her student communicated regularly via text messages and that many of them were sexual in nature.
They also say that Streeper would pick the boy up from his Norristown home and have sex with him in her car as well as inside her Bucks County home. Police began investigating after getting a tip from an anonymous caller.
Norristown School District released this statement in regarding the incident:
"We are deeply saddened and troubled by the allegations and we look froward to the law enforcement authorities following through with their investigation."
Family members tell NBC10 that Streeper is the mother of two young children.
Streeper was arraigned Thursday afternoon in Norristown and her bail was set at $100,000. She remains in Montgomery County Prison, unable to post bail.
