Brooklyn Teacher Arrested For Sexual Relationship With Student, Cops Say
WILLIAMSBURG — A Brooklyn teacher was arrested Monday for having an extended sexual relationship with an underage student, the NYPD said.
Urszula Jankowska, 33, had a sexual relationship with an unidentified student for at least several weeks in 2011, cops said.
She's been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, a criminal sex act and forcible touching, police said.
Jankowska had worked as an English as a Second Language teacher for Williamsburg High School for Architecture and Design until Monday's arrest, a Department of Education spokeswoman said.
"She was immediately removed from the school pending an investigation," the spokeswoman said.
Jankowska and the student reportedly began their relationship in 2008 when the girl was only 13-years-old, according to the Daily News.
Police couldn't confirm the length of their relationship or the student's age, but said it ended after several weeks in 2011.
School officials learned of the relationship after Jankowska told her principal that the girl was posting threatening messages to her Facebook profile, the paper reported.
Jankowska had worked for Williamsburg High School for the past four years, starting as an English teacher then transfering to the second language program in 2012, education officials said.
