But the youngster eventually did tell and Amato was removed from her classroom at Ethan Allen Elementary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The boy's father said at the time: "I was very upset. She took my kid's youth and I really want justice to take care of this woman."
His son "felt humiliated,"refused to go to school.
"Since that happened he changed," he added.
Before turning herself in to police, in June 2014, Amato posted online photos of her hanging out with her pupils. Several boys in her car posed with their middle fingers up in one snap, while she captioned another: "My fav students!!”
Amato's drug habit started in 2010 with painkillers for "recreational use”, said her lawyer Trevan Borum.
