Megan Denman, a 29-year-old social sciences teacher at Hoover High School in Fresno, Calif., was arrested for allegedly performing oral sex on and sleeping with a student who was under 18, KFSN TV reports.
Denman has been put on paid administrative leave during the investigation, and Fresno Unified Superintendent Michael Hanson told the station he's saddened by the allegations.
"Unfortunately, we have learned of an alleged inappropriate relationship between a teacher and student in our own district," Hanson told KFSN. "Words cannot describe my deep disappointment in this alleged breach of teacher/student relationship."
Students, however, had a different reaction to the news.
"I kinda don't believe it 'cause she doesn't seem like that," an unnamed student told CBS 47 News.
KSEE TV reports this is only the latest in example of at least five alleged inappropriate teacher-student relationships the area has seen in the last 10 months.
Denman has since been released on bail and authorities say they have no reason to suspect other students were involved in the illegal activity.
