Christine Taylor, 44, has been arrested for sexually abusing a 16-year-old at her house on New Year's Day in Chicago, Illinois.
The teacher at Jefferson Middle School had reportedly invited the teen and his mother over for pizza that evening in Naperville.
After Taylor persuaded the boy's mother to let them take her dog for a walk, the language arts instructor led the teen upstairs where the sexual assault allegedly took place.
According to reports, the 16-year-old's mother witnessed the abuse and another resident called police shortly thereafter.
"While the victim in this case was not a student at Jefferson Middle School, Ms Taylor, as a teacher, still holds a position of trust in the community," State's Attorney Robert Berlin told the Chicago Tribune.
Taylor is currently being held on a $300,000 bond.
