(UPDATE) -- An arrest warrant has been issued for former teacher Marcos Garcia. He's being charged with having an improper relationship with a 16-year-old girl. 

"We are going to be meeting with all the employees in the district and talking about what things we can do to prevent future incidents like this," said Salado superintendent Michael Novotny. "One of the things we will be talking about is the possibility of some training with students and that when they suspect something to report it immediately."

Garcia taught math at the junior and high school. Along with coaching football and weight lifting.

The allegations of an improper relationship were brought forward by the girl's parent. Garcia and the teacher had been texting about topics that were not school related, says Novotny.

Garcia said in his resignation letter, "I am deeply sorry for all the wrongs & inconveniences I have brought upon my employees & the people who have hired me & put trust in me."
