Amy Beck was then a sixth-grade teacher at Jordan Middle School in California. She admitted to be having a seven-month relationship with the student, according as reported by an online news source. The liaison is supposed to have taken place between March and September 2009, which involved multiple sex acts at Amy Beck’s home in Burbank as well as on the campus of Jordan Middle School, as far as the lawsuit suggests.
