Administrators at Bullitt Central contacted police after speaking with a fellow teacher.

Chappell admitted she was guilty of the charges. Shepherdsville police say the alleged incidents had been going on since June.

Calling her a danger to others, a judge set her bond at $25,000 and told her not to have contact with anyone under the age of 18.

Chappell has been suspended from teaching pending the investigation.
