According to court documents, authorities found evidence of a relationship on phones belonging to both the 25-year-old and the most recent teen, including a message from Gutierrez that praised the student's sexual performance.

Court documents obtained by KTRK allege Gutierrez met with an 18-year-old current high school senior November 12 in a parking lot, where they allegedly kissed in the front seat of her car before crawling in the back seat to have sex.

The documents allege they met once again for sex days later.

Investigators said Gutierrez admitted to the sexual relationship and that they found evidence on both of their phones "about meeting times and the student's sexual performance," according to KTRK.

More than a year earlier, documents say Gutierrez had a sexual relationship with another teen who graduated from Santa Fe High in May.

Both students were 18. Gutierrez was arrested Monday and is charged with three counts of improper relationship between educator and student.

Court documents state that Gutierrez "admitted to a relationship and sexual relationship with a current Santa Fe High School student."

Patti Hanssard, spokeswoman for the Santa Fe Independent School District released the following statement on the arrest: 

"Santa Fe ISD became aware that a former high school teacher was arrested Monday, November 28, 2016, in connection with allegations that she may have engaged in an improper relationship with a student. As soon as the District learned of the allegations, an internal investigation began including campus administrators and the District police department, and the teacher's employment with the District ended.
