She had denied all of the charges against her.

The court heard over the past week how it evolved from kissing to oral sex before progressing to sexual intercourse in a motel room when he was 12 years old.

It also involved a number of x-rated phone texts, including images of her breast.

It was discovered after another teacher at the school found the mobile phone the defendant had bought the boy and saw what she believed were inappropriate text messages on it.

Police were called soon after to investigate the allegations.

The woman will be sentenced on November 27 and a psychiatric report prepared.
