A longtime teacher was placed on leave after she was busted having sex with a student.

44-year-old Nikki Varney of Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, was a teacher at the Williamsburg High School.

Police said that school officials were alerted that Varney was having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old male student.

Investigators discovered that the teacher had sex with the student twice.

According to the boy’s affidavit, the inappropriate contact began while the 15-year-old boy was swimming at the pool in the teacher’s apartment complex.

They began talking and they soon moved to the hot tub.

The two then went to Canoe Creek State Park to walk her dog. While at the park, they walked along a path and ended up having sex on a park bench.

Varney and the boy allegedly had sex on another occasion in her home after she picked him up from basketball practice.

The teacher was charged with two counts each of statutory sexual assault, intercourse with a student, corruption of minors and unlawful contact with a minor.

According to the school’s website, Varney, who is a mother, has been a science teacher since 1997. She also taught chemistry and physics.

Varney is being held at the Blair County Prison on $150,000 bail.
