BROOKLYN - Investigators say a Brooklyn teacher had an inappropriate relationship with one of his female students.

The Department of Education identified the teacher as Jay Travis, an English instructor at the Brooklyn Studio Secondary School in Bensonhurst.

Officials say Travis sent the student explicit text messages. He allegedly engaged in sexual acts with the girl while she was a senior at the school.

The DOE's special commissioner of investigation recommends that Travis be terminated from his position at the school.
