Melissa Rockensies, 33, was arrested on Tuesday, marking the second consecutive day in which a Queens educator faced arrest due to alleged inappropriate involvement with a student.
Rockensies, a married middle school teacher at Corona Arts and Sciences Academy, had previously shared a post on Facebook discussing ways to help young individuals comprehend the concept of consent, as initially reported by the New York Post.
