Gym Teacher Says She Was Fired For Refusing To Have Threesome With Boss

A gym teacher from Bronx says she was fired from her faculty position at Riverdale/Kingsbridge Academy because she refused to have threesome with her boss and her boss’ boyfriend.

According to a report by the New York Daily News, gym teacher Carisa Gaylardo claimed on her Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit that she was fired from her position as a gym teacher for the academy because her boss, supervisor and tenured physical education teacher Sofia Memos, did not take it well when Gaylardo refused to have three-way with her and her boyfriend. The fired gym teacher claims that she received unsatisfactory reviews and was subsequently fired after she refused to indulge Memos’ kinky advances.

The lawsuit revealed Gaylardo’s claims that Memos pushed for an investigation on Gaylardo reportedly as retaliation for the rejected sexual request. The supervisor allegedly influenced the Department of Education to conduct an investigation on the gym teacher’s alleged “flirtatious” relationship with a student from the academy.

The gym teacher claims that the investigation was conducted less than a month after she rejected Memos’ sexual request. The investigation led to the end of Gaylardo’s six-year career in the New York school system.

The investigation discovered that there were about 1,000 text messages exchanged between Gaylardo and the student claimed by the probe to have been the subject of the inappropriate relationship. However, the gym teacher says that the nature of the messages were merely for mentoring purposes. She adds that she was trying to encourage the said student, a female, who reportedly was struggling to balance athletic and academic life.

The student claimed by the investigation to have been unusually involved with the gym teacher says that there was nothing untoward about the relationship, noting that her parents fully knew about the relationship.

The girl, who was not named by sources, and her mother officially released a statement of support for the dismissed gym teacher. On her affidavit, the student wrote:

“It is wrong that such a good person…is suffering simply for helping me with my struggles.”

During the investigation, Memos reportedly said that she felt “uncomfortable” about the rapport between the gym teacher and the student. She also added that the text messages between them were especially bothersome. However, the gym teacher claimed in her lawsuit that Memos herself sent her threesome propositions via text messages. In the lawsuit, Gaylardo said:

“(Memos’ charges) were false and particularly curious and disconcerting because Memos herself had actually propositioned (Gaylardo) by text message and in person to engage in an inappropriate romantic and salacious relationship with her and her boyfriend.”

Should Carisa Gaylardo, the gym teacher fired for allegedly refusing threesome with her supervisor, get her job back?
