Former White Teacher Julie Warning caught making out with her radiator hose student Eric Arty
They look like a picture-perfect young inter-racial couple kissing in the park.
The problem is, she’s his high-school teacher and she's white.
Stunning global-studies instructor Julie Warning got a bit too worldly with a pupil in the middle of a Greenwich Village park after school — and the makeout session was caught on camera by one of her own stunned students.
The Department of Education reassigned Warning to an administrative position yesterday and turned the matter over to the department’s special commissioner of investigations, officials said.
“The photo is of a teacher and she has been reassigned,” a DOE spokeswoman said. Asked about Warning, an SCI official confirmed, “We have a case.”
According to an eyewitness, the 26-year-old teacher at Manhattan Theater Lab HS near Lincoln Center looked swept off her feet as she sat on a bench near Bleecker Street, legs strewn across the lap of 18-year-old senior Eric Arty last Friday.
They kissed and held each other passionately for more than 30 minutes, oblivious to any gawkers.
“It’s hard to fathom,” said the shocked classmate who witnessed the hot-for-student session. “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 teacher and her pet met in front of a shoe store in SoHo and then strolled through the Village hand in hand like a dating couple, according to the student, who requested anonymity.
The two were in their own world, stopping to kiss at each red light.
“She’s definitely the most appealing teacher in the school,” said the student witness. “She always wore nice skirts, and she had appealing tattoos all over her body.”
But she looks even more like a wild child on her Facebook page.
Photos 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 make-out session.
“Yeah, that’s me. I’m kissing a girl,” Arty said when confronted with the photo. “That’s not my teacher that I’m kissing in the picture. It’s just a girl I know.”
Warning claimed she was camping with friends at the time. She and Arty 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 Arty is not a minor. But she faces disciplinary action from the DOE if investigators decide that she and Arty were romantically involved.
The teachers-union contract states that sexual misconduct with a student is defined as “sexual touching” or “action that could reasonably be interpreted as soliciting a sexual relationship.”
“It doesn’t seem like her style,” said her father, Pete Warning.
“All of her students, like 85 percent, are gonna pass their Regents for the first time. They all love her. My heart’s broken,” he said.
Several students said schools investigators had quizzed them about Warning and asked if she had ever indulged in inappropriate behavior with them.
“I’d be very disappointed if it’s true,” said Marquis Baggett, 16, a sophomore at the school. “She’s real nice and a great teacher. I passed my global Regents because of her last year.”
