A former Riverland High School Teacher has read a tearful apology in court after she groomed one of her students between July & August last year.  

34-year-old Renee Underwood fronted the District Court yesterday after earlier pleading guilty to an aggravated count of making a child amenable to sexual activity.

The court heard a tearful apology from Underwood saying "she was in a very dark place in her life and she dealt with that is inexcusable."

Underwood, who now lives in Adelaide is now unable to teach works and now works as a chef.

She will be sentenced next month.
