NY Post – Meet Melissa Petro — the teacher who gives a new twist to “sex ed.” The tattooed former hooker and stripper has been teaching art in a Bronx elementary school for three years, The Post has learned. Calling herself a “former sex worker,” the well-liked teacher has been shockingly up front about her past — posting online accounts of her sexcapades in Mexico and London. But in her boldest move, the 30-year-old posted an essay this month claiming she also had been a prostitute. “From October 2006 to January 2007, I accepted money in exchange for sexual services I provided to men I met online in what was then called the ‘erotic services’ section of Craigslist.org,” wrote Petro on The Huffington Post, using her real name and picture. It appears she managed to keep her shenanigans a secret from parents at PS 70 — who were stunned by the revelation. “I don’t want nobody that used to do that to be around my kid,” said Grace Ventura, whose son is in third grade. “People like that should not be allowed to be anywhere near children.”  Petro, who earns $61,000 a year, also wrote that a co-worker had warned her that some of her colleagues were beginning to Google her. “There have been lots of rumors going around about her for a while now,” one school worker told The Post. “I wouldn’t want my kid to be in a school where she is.”

And so begins her journey into the life of a press magnet. I mean. What did she do wrong anyway? Does sleezing around craigslist looking for chumps to pay you for cash affect your ability to teach kids how to paint? Did it affect her ability to show young children the difference between complimentary and secondary colors? No.

I mean, what is the difference between her and those sex scandal retards, Paris Hilton, Eve, Kim Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson, Colin Farrel, Fred Durst, Screech, Jayne Kennedy, Lindsay Lohan, Katy Perry, Martha Stewart, Pope John Paul II, and Hillary Swank? One thing. No sex tape.  But guess what people. This chick is smart. She is up to something. I wouldn’t put it past her that she is doing this all on purpose to fuel the media and turn out shining like  a new state quarter. I’m sure she is already writing a self help book. “From finger blasting to finger painting. How to become an Art teacher after turning tricks.”
