A teacher has resigned after being accused of having a two-month relationship with a teenage student.

Jaclyn Truman, 30, allegedly had a relationship with the 15-year-old female pupil last year while serving as a substitute teacher at Hagerty High School in Seminole County, Florida.

The student told investigators she had consensual sex with Ms Truman between five and 10 times in a classroom at the school between March and May 2016, ABC’s WFTV reported.

Ms Truman had been working as a sign language teacher at Lake Howell High when her employers were informed of the allegations on 2 October.

She had reportedly handed in her notice of resignation five days earlier, which was due to become effective on Friday.

Ms Truman’s resignation became final on Thursday instead after she came forward to police.

The former teacher has been charged with two counts of lewd acts on a minor and booked into the John E Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford.

Officials said Ms Truman was cooperating with the investigation.

Seminole County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bob Kealing said the classroom should be a safe zone for children.

“That’s why we are especially concerned about this because it’s brazen in nature,” he said.

“And we’re concerned that there potentially could be other victims here.”
