Tattooed global studies instructor Julie Warning, 26, was filmed in the middle of a New York park after school in the lap of 18-year-old student Eric Arty.
The scene, reported in the NY POST today, was captured in Greenwich Village.
Educator: Julie Warning, left, a well-liked teacher at Manhattan Theater Lab High School, has been reassigned after she was filmed kissing one of her students
The pair apparently met in front of a shoe store in SoHo and then strolled through the Village hand in hand like a dating couple.
They then sat down on a park bench and embraced with her legs strewn across the senior student last Friday.
According to witnesses, she looked swept off her feet. The NY POST reported they kissed and held each other for more than half and hour.
Denial: Student Eric Arty says that the woman he is seen kissing is not his teacher
The city's Department of Education was informed and Warning was then reassigned to an administrative position yesterday.
Officials said the probe was then launched when the matter was turned over to the department's special commissioner of investigations.
A DOE spokeswoman said: 'The photo is of a teacher and she has been reassigned. We have a case.'
Warning is a teacher at Manhattan Theater Lab High School near Lincoln Center.
'It's hard to fathom. I wish it was a different teacher, because she was well-liked. But the DOE should vet its teachers better if this is something she would do.
The witness, who asked not to be named, said: 'She's definitely the most appealing teacher in the school. She always wore nice skirts, and she had appealing tattoos all over her body.'
Pictures on Warning's Facebook page show her double-fisting beers, partying with cigarettes tucked behind her ear and drinking out of a beer bong.
Warning, of upstate Peekskill Lake, and Arty both denied that she is the woman in the photographed in the park.
The teenager said: 'Yeah, that's me. I'm kissing a girl. That's not my teacher that I'm kissing in the picture. It's just a girl I know.'
Student: Julie Warning cannot be charged because student Eric Arty, above, is 18, but she is still subject to discipline by the Department of Education
Warning claimed she was camping with friends at the time. Both both denied they were romantically involved.
'He is my student but I've never had a relationship with him or any of my students,' said Warning. 'That is inappropriate. I think that this is a misunderstanding.'
Warning would face no criminal charges because the student is not a minor. But she faces disciplinary action from the DOE if investigators decide that she and Arty were romantically involved
