MIAMI (CBSMiami) - A teacher from Doral International Academy of Math & Science is facing serious charges Friday after allegedly professing her love for a 13-year-old student.

Doral police said 47-year-old Andrea Jimenez sent the victim multiple text messages to the boy which "professed her love for him and her desire to engage with him in an intimate manner."

Police said Jimenez routinely purchased gifts for the boy, including clothing, shoes, electronics, toys, and books.

Jimenez faces several charges, including lewd and lascivious assault on a child.

Police said that Jimenez had been sending the boy text messages beginning in May of this year.

Jimenez became aggressively romantic and would message the boy nightly with comments like "I will go to hell for u. Die for u stop
eating to feed you. My love for u is so real and huge!!! I don't mind facing the devil himself for u," authorities said.

The arrest report says that Jimenez grabbed the boy's face and attempted to kiss him prior to the end of the previous school year.

Police said Jimenez turned herself in to police on Friday and was transported to jail.

She is expected to face a judge by Monday.
