Jennifer Tyree, age 36, was arrested after her husband witnessed his wife inappropriately touching a 17-year-old teen and then contacted the boy’s mother.

Authorities said during their investigation another boy came forward to say he too had a sexual relationship with Tyree.

“I approached him last night after I read the article, and he told me the truth,” the mother of the second boy said Friday. “The woman was coming to my home. She told me she was his mentor. We met for lunch — she picked me up, and we had lunch, and we had discussed nothing but (my son) and his grades.

“I would say, ‘We need more teachers like this,’ not knowing she was sleeping with him.”

The investigation also revealed that Tyree was not qualified to teach at high school level.  Her qualifications only allow her to teach from K-9.

School officials told The Global Dispatch that they are conducting their own investigation into how Tyree got the job at the high school.

Tyree’s husband has confirmed details with Petersburg police and she has been charged with criminal sexual assault. The woman is being held on a $100,000 bond.
