51-year-old Sonya Bailey of Arab, Alabama, was a commerce and information technology teacher at West End High School, when the alleged crime took place.

She also said: “I enjoy working with the students of WEHS and trust that they will leave my class having learned something beneficial toward their future.”

She was booked into jail on one count of a school employee engaging in a sex act with a student, second-degree sodomy and second-degree rape.

The grandmother was released after posting a $60,000 bail.
