Messages from a middle school teacher to a 14-year-old boy who she is accused of grooming and raping have come to light after she was apprehended.
Melissa Rockensies, a Queens resident, is accused of rape, criminal sexual conduct, and endangering a kid under the age of 17.
The adolescent, who wished to remain anonymous, claimed that Rockensies started grooming him soon after she started stepping in as a teacher at his school the previous year.
The mother-of-three apparently started messaging him on Instagram and sent a string of filthy messages, one of which allegedly said she was moaning for him.
The Corona Arts and Sciences Academy pupil, who was 14 years old, told the publication that he thought Rockensies had taken advantage of him because of his relatively young age.
He claimed that their communication began after he started emailing her about a conflict with another student at the school and that he immediately felt at ease around her.
The woman claims that she sent the vile message over the course of almost a year while juggling caring for her children.

After exchanging hundreds of emails, the duo allegedly started talking on Instagram in September. Rockensies ultimately suggested a face-to-face meeting, the girl claimed.
After she went to the grocery store, where she is alleged to have hugged the youngster quite tightly and then asked to kiss him, he told the publication that they went for a walk in the park.
The kid said that the alleged sexual abuse persisted until late May or early June and that it usually happened in her car before and after school.
He insisted that they meet in the spot where the automobile is parked and that she made an effort to do so every day but Wednesday because she had to supervise the kids.
He claims they have sex every time they meet, and she would allegedly offer him gifts like cash and nicotine products.
The teacher alleged last month that the youngster had been extorting her and that he had threatened to shoot her and her children if she didn’t pay him $5,000. It’s unknown if Rockensies explained why the student was extorting her.
The student denied these claims, claiming that someone else had been texting her from his account and that he had been suspended from Instagram for missing summer school.
The boy claimed that after the threats were reported, he went to the police and showed them their obscene communications.
The teacher is scheduled to make an appearance to court on November 24 and could spend up to seven years in prison if found guilty, according to Judge Anthony Battisti. She was let go without posting bail.
