New York, Jan 13 (ANI): The teacher, who was caught in a compromising position with another female teacher at James Madison High School in Brooklyn, has been fired from her job.
French teacher Cindy Mauro, 34, was found guilty of "extremely serious misconduct" for her sexual encounter with Spanish instructor Alini Brito, 30, in November 2009 during an evening student performance.
The 'Horndog High' teacher was fired amid a new allegation that her sexual relationship with Brito started years before that fateful night.An arbitrator found Mauro's defense, that she was aiding her diabetic friend by getting her candy and that custodians and security agents were mistaken when they said they saw them naked in a classroom, "lacking in basic truthfulness".
Another Madison teacher, Maria Bucca, testified Mauro had told her she had "fooled around" with Brito eight years earlier. Mauro denied having told Bucca the two had ever been intimate.
Assistant Principal Jody Cohen also testified that immediately after the incident, Mauro told her it was "just a kiss". Mauro also denied making that statement.
The report said Mauro's "poor judgement" was compounded by her refusal to "take responsibility for her actions".
"The saying comes to mind, 'Those who do not learn from history are bound to repeat it'," the New York Daily News quoted the report as stating. (ANI)
