Acker has resigned from her job as a teacher at Bryant High School in Tuscaloosa.

It's unclear how school officials became aware of the alleged relationship on January, 6. But after they were alerted, they told authorities.

"The Tuscaloosa City School System learned of these allegations Tuesday, January 6, at which time an investigation was immediately conducted by both the Tuscaloosa Police Department and Tuscaloosa City School officials,” the school system said in a statement obtained by WIAT. “The following day, January 7, the Board of Education accepted the resignation of the teacher involved.“
