A teacher used her free time between periods to have sex with students in her classroom, according to police in California.

Belmont police said that they have arrested 35-year-old Danielle Matko, after being accused of having sex with 15-year-old boys.

In court, Matko was convicted of one count of oral copulation on a minor and three counts of lewd acts upon a child.

Judge Jonathan Karesh revoked Matko’s bail, pending sentencing.

Matko faces up to six years in prison.

She will also have to register as a sex offender.

According to the police investigation, the sexual encounters occurred when Matko was an English teacher at the East Palo Alto Aspire Phoenix Academy.

Matko had sex with two 15-year-old boys.

Matko used her free time between periods and after school hours to have sex with the students in her classroom.

Matko allowed one boy to take pictures of her naked body.

Police later found the pictures on the boy’s phone.

The abuse came to light after the students bragged to their friends about the sexual encounters, and one of them called the police.

Matko denied all the allegations, claiming that the students fabricated all the stories.
