Former High School Dance Teacher Charged With Sex Abuse Against Former Student

A former high school teacher in Houston, Texas has been arrested for having an inappropriate sexual relationship with one of her students.

ABC affiliate KTRK-TV in Houston reports that Amanda Michelle Feenstra, 30, a former Humble High School dance and drill team, carried on a relationship with a 17-year-old former female student for over a year.

Houston police became aware of the misconduct after the 17-year-old girl alerted them of her relationship with Feenstra, saying that Feenstra would not leave her alone.

"I tried to protect my children from people like her," said the alleged victim's mother. "But I didn't see it coming, because she was her teacher, she had a husband."

The student, who has now graduated from the high school was 16 and on the dance team when she met Feenstra. The incidents allegedly took place multiple times at the school, after all football games and at Feenstra's home.

Feenstra has been released from jail on a $30,000 bond.
