A New York City middle school teacher left her own children home alone so she could meet up with her husband for a wild night on the town. Laura Aguero, 35, of Sunset Park is charged with endangering the welfare of a child after she left her 12-year-old and 4-year-old home by themselves so she could get tattoos and get boozed up. New York Daily News reports that this all took place Wednesday night.
A neighbor called police after hearing something break in the apartment. When police arrived at the scene, they found a 12-year-old and 4-year-old unsupervised. Aguero and her husband, Alfredo Bobe, 41, arrived back home around 4 a.m. Thursday, according to police. They were arrested, with Aguero being charged with child endangerment and Bobe with criminal mischief and acting in a manner injurious to a child, the report states.
Department of Education spokeswoman Devora Kaye says Laura Aguero teaches at Middle School 88 in Sunset Park and has been a city teacher since 2004.
“While this alleged behavior is not school-related, it is unacceptable. (She) has been reassigned away from any classroom, and will not be in contact with students. The safety and security of our students is our top priority.”
The teacher who left her kids for a night on the town has already been in trouble with the Department of Education. Officials say that in 2012, Aguero had a physical and verbal confrontation with a DOE vendor and was reassigned away from the classroom. She was also fined $2,500 and was ordered by a judge to take a management course. She was allowed to re-enter the classroom in 2013.
In December 2013, a mother left her three young children alone at home so she could go clubbing on a Saturday night. She didn’t return until Sunday morning, NBC Connecticut reported. The children’s ages were 13, 4, and 1. She was charged with risk of an injury to a minor.
This echoes a similar story on Inquisitr about a man from New Jersey who left his disabled daughter and a toddler in a hotel room by themselves so he could meet his wife at the mall for shopping on Black Friday. Luckily, the kids were okay and the parents weren’t gone long, but they face charges as well for their negligent actions.
Laura Aguero, a teacher who was fine with leaving her children home alone so she could get out of the house, will no longer work around students in school.
