A former teacher in Pickering is facing criminal harassment charges, connected to a former boy she used to teach.

Durham Regional Police say the woman had repeatedly contacted the boy in the past and was arrested after being spotted outside the boy's Pickering home.

Cops say she was reportedly sitting in her car, watching the house.

40 year old Jennifer Kurka lives in Scarborough, and faces just the one charge.

Police say the boy is under the age of 18, and they wouldn't give any information on the school he currently attends.

Kurka has been released with conditions, and a promise to appear in court for her next hearing, which will be on April 29th.

Janet Edwards, the Superintendant of Employee Relations at the Durham District School Board says Kurka has been on a leave since October, and she couldn't identify which school she'd been teaching at.

A quick search found that Kurka was once a teacher at Pine Ridge Secondary School, but the front office says she's not on their active teachers list.

Edwards also couldn't say which subjects she'd been teaching.

She went on to say they are co-operating fully with Durham Regional Police.
