    TUNNEL HILL, Ga. (AP) — A northwest Georgia high school teacher is accused of possessing heroin on campus and having a yearlong sexual relationship with a student.

    News outlets report 28-year-old Raquel Eleana Spencer was arrested Wednesday when a school resource officer found an illegal substance in her belongings at Northwest Whitfield High School. Whitfield County Schools spokesman Eric Beavers said the search was triggered by a report of unusual behavior.

    Sheriff's Office Capt. Paul Woods said Thursday that an investigation revealed Spencer had a sexual relationship with a student that began at least a year ago, when the student was a juvenile.

    She's charged with possession of heroin and sexual assault by persons with supervisory or disciplinary authority. Beavers said Spencer submitted her resignation Wednesday.

    It's unclear whether she has a lawyer.
