Two more North Texas teachers have been arrested after being accused of having improper relationships with their students.

Former Irving Teacher Arrested

On Wednesday, the Irving police arrested April St. John Alexander, 26, of Haltom City, after her former student told police they had sex more than two dozen times over a three-month period when he was 16. 

The student, now 18, told police the encounters took place at MacArthur High School, where she was a biology teacher, and in her car.

The Irving Independent School District said Alexander resigned with no reason give on Nov. 17, 2010.  She started working with the district on Oct. 14, 2008.

Irving police said they learned of the relationship while investigating a similar claim against Alexander.

Garland Police Arrest Teacher

Christian Michael Flores, a North Garland High School teacher and coach, turned himself in to Garland Police Wednesday after he was charged with an improper relationship with a student.

Once in custody, police added a charge of indecency with a child - contact. The victim in each case was a female under the age of 17, police said.

Flores bonded out of jail Thursday morning.

Police detectives continue to look at the possibility there may be other victims and if anyone has knowledge of other offenses are asked to call the Garland Police.

Kennedale Teacher's Husband to Speak

The husband of Brittni Colleps, a Kennedale High School teacher accused of having sex with five students, will make a statement Thursday, the couple's attorney said Wednesday.

Colleps has not commented on her case.  She bonded out of jail Monday afternoon and has not yet been formally charged with any crime.  All five of the students in the case were 18 years old at the time of the encounter.
