The professor has taken a sudden interest in his professor.

Melissa Petro has landed a new teaching gig after being forced out of the city public schools nearly two years ago for going public about her past as a Craigslist prostitute and stripper.

The former Bronx elementary-school art teacher, who wrote blogs advocating for sex workers when she was not teaching young kids, says she’s “very happy” in her new career teaching adults memoir writing at Gotham Writing Workshops.

She also has a second gig — teaching hookers how to share their stories at the Red Umbrella Project, an organization that teaches writing skills to sex workers.
