A Connecticut teacher and Trump supporter who was fired after being featured in a series of semi-nude photos for an online news outlet — an effort, she said, meant to encourage people to vote in the presidential election — has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the Grove School in Madison. Chelsy Zelasko, 27, of Madison, served as an art teacher and counselor at the private boarding and day school from February to April of this year. Though Zelasko is a registered Democrat, she was a vocal supporter of Donald Trump at the time of the election, according to the lawsuit filed in Superior Court in New Haven this week. The outlet began uploading a series of interviews and photography sessions with individuals earlier that year, in which participants were questioned on a topic they were passionate about and agreed to be photographed partially nude, according to the lawsuit. On or around April 3, Peter Chorney, the executive director at the Grove School, called Zelasko and said the article had been brought to his attention, according to the lawsuit. He expressed concerns about the content featured in the piece, and advised her to resign.

About two and half years ago, Lauren Miranda, a middle school teacher in New York, was getting ready at her home when she decided to take a topless selfie and send it to her then-boyfriend, who was a teacher in the same school district. This January, Miranda, 25, was called to the principal's office at Bellport Middle School on Long Island, where she had been a math teacher since Before going to the meeting, a colleague told Miranda that there was a rumor her naked photo had been obtained by a teenage student. Miranda was certain it wasn't hers because she had never sent anything like that to a student. But during the meeting in the principal's office — where there were mostly men — one of the male school administrators brought up Miranda's topless selfie on his computer screen and showed it to her. The officials confronted Miranda about the selfie and accused her of disseminating the photo to students.
