(Reading) -- Police allege a 27-year-old Berks County teacher and cheerleading coach had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student. 

Nicole Kurowski, a gym teacher at Tulpehocken High School outside Reading, has surrendered to face charges of institutional sexual assault. She is free on $25,000 bail.     

State police allege that Kurowski had a sexual relationship with the student both on and off school property during the last school year. 

Police say they recovered thousands of text messages, some sexually explicit, as well as photos, and allege that the two traded messages saying ``I love you.''  

The district superintendent notified police and prosecutors after receiving a tip in early September about Kurowski, who has been suspended without pay.
