A former Northridge High School teacher pleaded guilty Wednesday to one felony count of attempted sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.

Rhonda Eisenberg, 44, made a plea agreement that calls for 90 days in jail and sex offender intensive supervised probation. She is due back in court on March 27 to be sentenced.

Eisenberg was booked into the Weld County Jail after police received an online tip about the relationship. According to KDVR, Eisenberg had been teaching in the Greeley-Evans School District for 20 years and was put on paid administrative leave earlier on in the investigation.

Police say that the victim is from Mexico and that Eisenberg was his legal guardian at the time of the alleged assaults from 2010 to 2011. The teen, who is now 19-years-old, also allegedly was a student in Eisenberg's classes.

Investigators say that Eisenberg admitted to having sex with the teen 20 to 30 times while he was under her care, and police have confirmed that the teen is the father of the baby who is now over a year old.

“Several months before he graduated, she gave birth to a Hispanic baby and coworkers and family suspected she had a relationship with the victim, who was a minor in her care,” Lt. Carl Alm, spokesman for the Greeley Police Department told the Greeley Tribune.

During a court appearance last month, Eisenberg told the judge "I'm not a bad person," and, "I just want to go home to my kids."

Eisenberg allegedly had a daughter with the student she is accused of sexually assaulting and has two children from a previous marriage.

Photographs from Eisneberg's Facebook page depicted her with a young unidentified child in June and on a vacation in Copper Mountain with an unidentified teen as recently as July 13 just before Eisenberg's last Facebook update for the next day which read, "Not so glad to be home."

The Facebook page has since been removed.

Eisenberg taught in the Greeley-Evans School District for 21 years, and will have to register as a sex offender.
