She also must register as a state sex offender, a judge ruled.

Amy Beck, 33, surrendered at the Burbank Police Department headquarters in March and was booked on suspicion of lewd and lascivious acts.

She was apparently overcome by guilt, Burbank police officials said.

Burbank police investigators allege that Beck, a teacher at David Starr Jordan Middle School, had a relationship with one of her male students from March to September 2009.

Beck was a well-known and popular teacher at David Starr, and both teachers and students expressed shock at her arrest.
