(Scroll down for video) A teacher was arrested after she threw a fit in school.
The teacher, who is married, was carrying on an inappropriate relationship with at least two students.
39-year-old Joy Morsi of Queens, New York, was arrested after she was accused of having an ongoing sexual relationship with the 16-year-old student.
Morsi was a gym teacher at Grover Cleveland High School in Ridgewood, and her husband is said to be a science teacher at the same school.
Prosecutors said that the romance began when Morsi offered to help the student, who was 16 at the time, lose weight. She soon began sending the teen inappropriate photos of herself.
The court heard that the two began having sex, and during their seven week inappropriate relationship the teacher sexually assaulted the teen 20 to 30 times in school and in her car.
The sex abuse came to light when Morsi learned that the student chose to take a girl to the prom. That is when according to prosecutors, Morsi got jealous and mad. She threw a fit, prompting another student to alert authorities.
Morsi faces charges of third-degree rape, third-degree criminal sexual act and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.
Her husband was in court for the hearing. One day after paying her bail, another student came forward with sex abuse allegations against Morsi, and she was arrested again.
