Meanwhile, Annie got rid of any teacher who may have seen her doing anything that could be considered wrong. I met with a paraprofessional who is now penniless. She was discontinued soon after she saw Annie walking arm in arm with a male student very early in the morning. Seifullah had his backpack, and evidently tried to look like a student. Another teacher, Hannah Kim, was given a pre-observation and observation by Seifullah the same day, rated ineffective, and terminated by Arbitrator Stephen O'Beirne, who gave every bit of credibility to Principal Seifullah, even to the extent of dismissing the articles in the Post as possibly untrue:
"In this arbitration, the Department seeks to discharge Respondent, contending she is incompetent and incapable of providing a meaningful learning experience for students in her charge. The Department relies on witness testimony; observation reports; disciplinary letters to file; professional development logs; and other documentary evidence to prove its case.
I found all four (4) Department witnesses to be credible and competent...None of them have any reason to testify falsely against Respondent."
and, in a footnote,
"2 As requested by Respondent, I take arbitral notice of the newspaper articles submitted. But those articles do not establish sexual or professional misconduct, only allegations of same. Even if l go further and accept for the purpose of this decision that the allegations are true, I am not convinced the Principal' s misconduct in any way affected Respondent 's ability to meet with her. There is not one email, memorandum or handwritten note to suggest Respondent tried alternate means to communicate with the Principal after unsuccessfully trying to locate her in the school building over the course of nearly five (5) months. And there is nothing in the record to show Respondent tried to schedule inter-visitations or any other type of professional development, either with the help of other administrators or on her own. Moreover, the Principal was removed from her position during the school year after Respondent received an unsatisfactory annual rating at the school."

In order to keep to their standards of zero tolerance for this kind of activity, the NYC DOE must fire her. The nexus to her job is that she is a role model for all the people in her building, and she decided to have sexual relations, using her power to "influence" other principals, employees and even a parent to do her whatever.
Here is the article in today's Post:
And then on Google+ we see that Annie has in her circles a man named Justin Stark, the new "ATR Supervisor" from Hell:
