Shoshana Leffler in 2008
Was this bitch buying drugs?
Or paying for sex?
Honestly, I don’t even really care and I’m getting sick of these “slut teacher” stories.
A former prodigy at the prestigious Bronx High School of Science who went on to become a city chemistry teacher resigned last year after she “engaged in an inappropriate relationship” with a male student in the Manhattan high school where she taught, an investigation found.
Shoshana Leffler, 37, was once a star student at the Bronx High School, where she and her twin brother Abba were both among 300 semifinalists in the nationwide Intel Science Talent Search.
She attended Princeton and NYU, then landed a teaching job in 2019 with the city Department of Education.
But in February 2023, Leffler, then 36, was caught on video taking a 17-year-old male student into a locked bathroom at the High School for Health Careers and Sciences in Manhattan’s Fort George — then later handing the teen a wad of cash.
“What occurred in the bathroom can only be speculated about since Leffler resigned from the DOE without providing an explanation,” Anastasia Coleman, the Special Commissioner of Investigation for city schools, said in a report obtained by The Post.
A surveillance camera in the school’s stairwell first picked up Leffler and the unnamed student “engaging in conversation” at 10:35 am on a Tuesday morning — one minute into the fourth period, when the teen “should have been in class,” the SCI report says.
An assistant principal spotted the two and rebuked Leffler for the improper tete-a-tete.
But instead of ending the encounter, she took the boy to the building’s fifth floor, the report states.
There, they “sought out a private room where security cameras could not record them,” investigators concluded — a staff bathroom with a lockable door.
Their seven-minute lavatory rendezvous ended when another faculty member arrived to use the facilities and found the bathroom locked from the inside.
Once the interrupting staffer departed, Leffler and the teen were filmed leaving separately.
The next day, Leffler met up with the student in the stairwell again, where she was recorded “handing [him] what appeared to be money, him pocketing this money, and them leaving the stairwell together,” the report says.
It looks like she got away clean!
She could be facing decades in prison if she’d gotten caught on instant messages talking about sex or sending nudes.
I guess her genius level IQ prevented her from getting done-up like that?!
