A former Kansas teacher will spend 15 weekends in jail for having sexual relations with a 17-year-old male student.

The Abilene Reflector-Chronicle reports 28-year-old Amber Stroda will also serve  probation under the sentence she received Wednesday in Dickinson County District Court.

Stroda taught third grade at Solomon Elementary School and was also a dance team sponsor at Solomon High School. She resigned from her teaching job in October 2012.

Stroda was initially charged with six counts of engaging in consensual sex with a student at least 16 years old. She pleaded guilty in August to three counts of having sex with the teen at his home. Prosecutors dropped the remaining counts in exchange.
