FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - A science teacher from the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Independent School District has been accused of having an improper relationship with a male student.

Rachelle Nicole Heenan of Haslet was arrested on Thursday evening.

Administrators were first made aware of the allegations back in May.

“School officials began hearing rumors that were circulating in the school and became suspicious,” Fort Worth police Sergeant Pedro Criado explained. “They ended up cooperating with the Fort Worth School Initiative Officer assigned to the school.”

The rumors were that Heenan had something going on with an 18-year-old male student. The interaction reportedly began with texting and then meeting outside of school.

“Ultimately the victim and the suspect met each other in the parking lot of a private gym in Fort Worth, held conversations inside the vehicle, and ultimately led to kissing,” Criado said.

After the encounter outside of the gym authorities believe things began escalating quickly.

“The victim met the suspect at a local hotel in Fort Worth and they eventually had sex for the first time,” Criado said. They did have sex after that, I believe multiple times.”

Heenan is 34-years-old and has been with the school district since August 2004. She began her career teaching science at Boswell High School in Fort Worth before moving to Forensic Science classes at the Hollenstein Career and Technology Center in August 2011.

“Ms. Heenan was placed on paid administrative leave on May 21 after district officials learned of the allegations,” said district spokeswoman Kristin Courtney. “The district has no reason to believe multiple students were involved.”

Heenan arrested and charged with Improper Relationship between  Educator/Student. She is free on $10,000 bond.

According to the schools website, Heenan is married and has two children.
