A middle school teacher in one of New York's Long Island suburbs claims she was fired last week for an old topless selfie and now threatens to sue her former school area for Gender discrimination
Lauren Miranda, 25, a former mathematics teacher at Bellport Middle School, took a topless selfie in 201
Miranda said she had no idea how the student got the picture. She was subsequently on paid administrative leave and then fired. She said she plans to file a $ 3 million federal lawsuit claiming gender discrimination unless she is reinstated, WPIX TV reported.
"I loved my job, I never woke up in the morning and didn't want to go. Students, my faculty. I really thought it was here to spend the next thirty years of my life," she said.
WINNING LEARNING EXPECTED SHOTS ON SCHOOL, NOT ON DRIVE HOME  According to the law documents of Ray's law firm, the district had said that Miranda was not a good role model because of the image.
"My career has been ruined, my reputation has been stained, I have been stigmatized," Miranda said. "Everything I've worked so hard for since I was 18 years old has been stolen from me because of an innocent selfie."

Ray accused the school district of sexism, arguing that a male teacher would not have been fired if that was the case with him.
"Whenever a man has ever exposed his breast, no one has ever commented or had any problem with it. But when a woman shows her chest as it has been here, she is fired by her job," he said.
The school district has not commented on the trial.
