Coweta County Sheriff Mike Yeager told Channel 2's Manuel Bojorquez that Dixon's husband alerted them to the relationship.
"Apparently he had found where she had been sending emails or sexting messages. He thought she was having an affair with another man. Come to find out, it was actually a 15, now 16-year-old individual that this person apparently taught in school," Yeager said.
In one text message Dixon asked the student if her "boots were sexy" and talked about "sneaking away together," according to the arrest warrant. Dixon also revealed the relationship to another work colleague, deputies said.
Yeager said Dixon is in custody in the Coweta Count Jail. Deputies have handed their evidence over to the District Attorney's Office for prosecution.
