Police in Pennsylvania fear there could be  other victims of Smith who carried on relationships with the students over a  two-year period.

One of the victims testified at her trial  that they would have sex four or five times a week.

Smith met one of her victims, who was aged 15, at McCaskey High School where she was an English teacher. She met the other student, who was aged 17, at a dance.

The court heard that the relationship with  the teens lasted from 2008 to October 2010 when a police investigation was  launched.

Smith had been giving her youngest victim  extra tuition and staff at the High School said they believed the relationship  had become too close.

They said Smith was ‘flirty’ with the teen  and were worried about how close they had become.

The teen told the court he would have sex  with Smith at her home.

The other teen told police he met Smith at a  dance and even though they knew the sexual relationship was wrong continued to  meet.

Smith showed no emotion at Lancaster County  Court after a jury found her guilty on 18 of 22 counts.

The eldest McCaskey victim, who is now 19 and  in jail on an unrelated charged, watched in handcuffs under the guard of two  deputy sheriffs.

He glanced at Smith, but otherwise showed no  reaction to the verdict.

Smith had a short conversation with attorney  Merrill Spahn before she was led out of the room in handcuffs.

Judge Dennis Reinaker, who will sentence  Smith in three months, warned her that she faces maximum penalties that could  span the rest of her life.
