The Black Diamond resident, "is charged with respect to her alleged actions with two separate male individuals, both of whom were students at the school at which she was employed," said RCMP spokesman Sgt. Patrick Webb.
"These charges were laid after an extensive investigation which involved interviews of over 30 potential witnesses and consultation with the Crown to ascertain the most appropriate charges," he said.
"The allegations center around extensive phone and text messaging contact between (the woman) and each of the males, starting with one in the fall of 2007 and the other in late 2008.
"At no time was there any physical harm to the victims."
Tanya Marie Cossette, of Black Diamond, faces charges of sexual exploitation, of luring a child and of trafficking Cannabis.
Cossette was arrested and has been released to appear at Okotoks provincial court on January 29, 2010.
The Turner Valley RCMP asks anyone who may feel they were victimized as well, or anyone who feels they may have information about these incidents to call the detachment.
