A married teacher who was accused of sexually harassing her colleagues last year and calling them FILFs - or fathers I'd like to f**k - has resumed teaching at a Long Island high school.

Cecilia Sanossian, 52, returned to Valley Stream North High School after 10 members of the social studies department signed a letter alleging she gave unsolicited massages and bragged about her sexual exploits, saying: 'I give really good h**d'.

While the school district superintendent defended her right to return to the classroom, a teacher told the NY Post: 'It's unbelievable that they would allow this to happen. It's a cover up of her actions.'

Sanossian 'has been permitted to return to the classroom' after allegations surfaced last summer prompting an extensive internal investigation, Heidenreich said a statement.

'When you have every single person in an entire department sign their names on a letter detailing the problem, how exactly do you think that it's unsubstantiated?', a teacher told the Post on the condition of anonymity.

Two married teachers, Al Daddino and John Brennan, came forward with the accusations last year and filed a formal complaint with the New York State Division of Human Rights.

A total of 10 instructors in the social studies department signed the letter of complaint, which was first given to the school principal in May 2015. 

'Not all members of the social studies department have experienced these actions, however, those who have not directly experienced these actions, have witnessed these actions,' the letter said.

 But both Daddino and Brennan said the principal and assistant principal ignored their complaints, which were brought up as early as 2010, the Long Island Press reported.

According to the Post, three of Sanossian's former students also came forward saying they felt uncomfortable with her conduct, which included rubbing circles on their backs and making 'inappropriate comments'.

Sanossian, a mother of two, reportedly told one teacher 'she likes to have sex more than her husband' and asked him to take a shower at her home.

She was then accused of smacking her own behind while saying 'not bad for a mom'.  

Others said she bragged about breaking a rib during rough sex and on a separate occasion, shared her experience waking up next to a naked woman.

She also compared one teacher to a 'hot fudge chocolate sundae that students want to eat,' according to the letter of complaint. 

Daddino said that he had to see a therapist due to the extreme stress and anxiety he felt after his interactions with Sanossian.

He told the Long Island Press: 'To see nothing be done about it...it really hurt, it really upset me. She created a toxic environment. I had to do something. I couldn't let this continue.'

Brennan told the Post that his breaking point came when Sanossian started rubbing his shoulders when he was sick with a sinus infection.

'I could feel myself shrinking,' he said. 'Then I began to feel powerless. Then I began to understand how people feel who are dealing with sexual harassment.' 

Both Daddino and Brennan will move forward with a civil rights claim against the 52-year-old, a source told the Post.   

Sanossian, who was the department chair before she stepped down for personal reasons while maintaining her teaching position, filed defamation lawsuits against Daddino and Brennan.

Her attorney told the Post: 'This is nothing more than a collusive sham to turn workplace envy into personal retribution.'
