HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (Feb. 23, 2015) – Police say a middle school teacher had sex with one of her students at school.

Parents at Turkey Creek Middle School received a message from the principal by phone informing them about the situation, reports WFTS.

“Hello, this is Fredda Johnson, principal at Turkey Creek Middle School calling with an important message. One of our teachers has been arrested,” the message said.

Megan Connors, 30, was arrested after police said she had sex with a 15-year-old student.

“We just learned that these charges have come down. They’re very serious charges,” said Steve Hegarty with the Hillsborough County School District.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, Connors, a math teacher on the school’s website, had sex with the student multiple times over the past month–including at school during school hours. On one occasion, police said Connors and the student left school in her car so they could have intercourse in the victim’s bedroom.

While the case remains under investigation, detectives don’t believe any other students were involved.

“She had nothing in her background that would suggest anything like this,” Hegarty said. “You know it’s shocking and it’s disappointing.”
