BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn teacher has been arrested for allegedly having a long-term sexual relationship with a 14-year-old boy.

Authorities say 42-year-old Claudia Tillery teaches at M.S. 35 in Bed-Stuy. She faces several charges, including rape, unlawful dealing to a child, sexual abuse and acting in a manner injurious to a child.

Police believe the relationship began in 2009 when the victim was in the sixth grade. They say the boy reached out to another teacher for help.

Parents say they're concerned and are waiting to see how the Department of Education will handle the situation.
