The 33-year-old teacher is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl at her family home.

Lauren Mitchell of New Jersey, who is a second-grade teacher at the Dr. Lena Edwards Academic Charter School in Jersey City, allegedly performed sex acts on the girl.

Their illicit relationship was discovered when fellow teachers noticed inappropriate interactions between Mitchell and the alleged victim during a class trip.

They alerted police and Mitchell was arrested.

She was charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.

Mitchell is being held at the Bergen County Jail on $150,000 bond. She was ordered to stay away from the victim.
