Dori Myers a Bronx High School public teacher has denied allegations she sexually assaulted a student.
Appearing in court on Saturday, the teacher whose social media account shows her laughing with friends or clutching a bottle of champagne (with the post labelled, ‘Champagne All Day,’) denied prosecutor allegations of the female educator allegedly performing a sex act on a 14-year-old boy.
During court deliberations, prosecutors also told of a fellow teacher witnessed Myers massaging the victim.
Myers, 29, a social studies teacher at The New School for Leadership and the Arts in Kingsbridge, was arrested Friday night and charged with criminal sexual act in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child reported the nydailynews.
Prosecutors initially requested a $50,000 bail and said Myers ‘abused her position as a trusted authority figure,’ but Judge Laura Drager eventually released the teacher on her own recognizance.
Myers’ arrest came after the teacher’s alleged victim telling a classmate of the purported indiscretions, with the classmate then notifying a school administrator, according to cops.

The alleged assault took place in Upper Manhattan on Nov. 1, according to a criminal complaint.
Myers who lives in Rockland County where her husband is a sheriff’s deputy, denied the allegations, said lawyer, Andrew Stoll.
Stoll noted the teacher had started a track team at the Bronx school, where she had worked since 2014.
‘It just takes one person’s accusation to make an arrest in this town and she’s a model citizen who looks forward to clearing her name,’ told Stoll via the nypost.
Along with her ‘Champagne All Day,’ social media post which sees the Bronx teacher holding a bottle in one hand and a glass of bubbly in the other, a now deleted social media post also included Myers posting, ‘Whiskey Makes Me Frisky.’
Of note, Myers’ students weren’t shy about commenting on her looks, Myers wrote in a 2015 tweet.
‘Ms. You’re like, real pretty, but, no offense, you got a big forehead,‘ the now-deleted tweet read.
The judge issued a 30-day order of protection requiring Myers to stay away from the victim.
The Department of Education called the allegations ‘deeply troubling’ and said Myers, who has no prior disciplinary history, was immediately reassigned ‘away from students.’
