Teacher charged with having improper relationship with 17-year-old student

A 46-year-old teacher at Guyer High School is accused of having an improper relationship with a student, according to police reports.

Police say Jeana Wesson surrendered to authorities Thursday morning. A bond has not yet been set, according to the Denton Record-Chronicle.

A former student of Wesson’s told police that they exchanged inappropriate photos and videos in 2017.

During the school day, Wesson waited until everyone except the student had left her classroom. She then locked the door and performed a sexual act with the student, according to the arrest affidavit.

Wesson is no longer listed on the Denton Independent School District’s online staff directory. She was a chemistry teacher and has been placed on leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

The district is also conducting an internal investigation.

The mother of an 8-year-old special needs child with autism in North Texas filed a federal lawsuit against Felty Elementary School and police after he was handcuffed and held down by teachers and police two years ago.
