The Canadian high school teacher who wears massive Z-cup prosthetic breasts in class has been placed on leave after The Post revealed she rarely wears them outside of school.

The Halton School District confirmed that Oakville Trafalgar High School shop teacher Kayla Lemieux was placed on paid leave Tuesday.

“Although he is not currently on active duty, the teacher remains employed by the (Halton District School Board),” spokeswoman Heather Francey told the Toronto Sun.

Lemieux’s suspension comes after Education Minister Stephen Lecce and Halton MPs Natalie Pierre, Stephen Crawford and Effie Triantafilopoulos rebuked the school board for “abdicating their responsibility by failing to put pupils’ interests and safety first”, according to The Sun.

A mother named Lynn told the school board Wednesday that “forms of identity and expression presented in the school environment (must) be scrutinized against the child’s safeguarding practices.”

The board has been largely silent about Lemieux while parents have raged for months about her wearing the prosthetics in front of students.

Photos and video taken at the school have shown her wearing tight clothing with large nipples protruding from under the fabric of her top.

The controversy has sparked a series of threats of violence against Lemieux and school officials.

Board of Education meetings have descended into chaos as it tries to address the issue.

The saga gained international attention and came to a head after The Post revealed last month that once outside of school, Lemieux often ditches her breasts, wig and makeup and appears as a man, sending shockwaves through the district.

Post photos showed a stripped-down Lemieux wearing men’s sweatpants, sneakers and a puffer vest — with no sign of her breasts, makeup, glasses or wig, a view the neighbor said she wears “extremely rarely.”

She insisted in an interview with The Post that the man in the photos was not her – although she admitted she could not prove it – and denied she was wearing breast implants.

“These are real,” Lemieux said, adding that she could not say who the person photographed was “because I don’t want to bring anyone else into this.”

“This is who I am. This is what I look like. You’ve talked to people in my building, but what they tell you is gross and untrue. I always go out looking like I am.”

Lemieux told The Post that although she began undergoing hormone therapy in 2021 and was “transitioning,” she is “not a transgender person” but was born “intersex.”

The teacher said her extra-large beasts are caused by a condition called “gigantomastia”, but also admitted she has never been officially diagnosed.

Gigantomastia is “a rare condition involving the development of extremely large breasts due to excessive breast tissue growth,” according to the renowned Cleveland Clinic, which said only about 300 cases have been reported.

Outraged parents demanded that the Halton District School Board introduce a dress code for teachers, which was initially rejected last year due to concerns about violations of the Ontario Human Rights Code. In January, the school board agreed to develop a policy requiring teachers to have an “appropriate and professional” appearance.

Lemieux told The Post that she “would follow the instructions of the board in terms of what they mandated,” but denied that she dressed provocatively.

“I don’t think there’s a problem with how I’ve dressed. It is other people’s personal opinion. I don’t think I have dressed unprofessionally, she said.
