Marianna Riossi, a 28-year-old teacher near Toronto, has been charged with three counts of sex assault and sexual exploitation over an alleged affair with a male student.

According to police, Riossi, a high school supply teacher with the York District Catholic School Board since 2014, came to their attention on January 26.

Authorities reportedly received an anonymous tip that Riossi, whose Facebook page lists her as “in a relationship”, was in a relationship with an unidentified teen.

It’s alleged the Vaughn woman was involved with the student between October and December of last year. Her profile claimed she was employed at St. Theresa of Lisieux, in Richmond Hill.

“These allegations are certainly upsetting for YCDSB,” board spokesman Sonia Gallo said in a statement. “We take very seriously our responsibility to ensure a safe and respectful working and learning environment for all our students and staff.

“Ms. Riossi was immediately removed from her teaching assignment, and is currently on leave, as per board practice.”

Detectives would not reveal which school the alleged victim attends. Certified to teach since 2012, she is a member in good standing with the Ontario College of Teachers. On ratemyteacher.com, students give her a whopping 4.76 out of 5. One commenter said Riossi “makes learning fun.” There were also a number of lewd comments on her rating page as of Thursday.

Riossi will appear in Newmarket court on March 6.
