A Queens teacher busted for having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student was arrested again for sexually abusing another teen boy at the Ridgewood high school where she worked, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Joy Morsi, 39, a physical education teacher at Grover Cleveland High School, was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal sexual act and one count of endangering the welfare of a child, according to District Attorney Richard Brown.

The Massapequa, Long Island resident is accused of engaging in sexual acts with the second victim, also a 16-year-old student, inside the school on Saturday morning, the district attorney said.

She allegedly had sex with the first student in the basement and other areas of the school during their relationship, according to Brown.

Morsi was charged Tuesday with 20 counts of third-degree rape, 20 counts of third-degree criminal sexual act and one count of endangering the welfare of a child in connection with that case, officials said.

The victim is a wrestler at the school, according to the Daily News, and the relationship started in June of last year.  The relationship continued until recently when the victim told authorities about the affair two weeks ago after Morsi became jealous that he was taking a girl to prom, the Daily News reported.

Prosecutors said Morsi, who pleaded not guilty to the new charges, enticed another student  not long after the first relationship ended, according to the Daily News.

Morsi was again held on $25,000 bail on Wednesday, and is set to return to court on June 23.
