TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES

FL Teacher Resigns After Gay-Porn Video Pops Up In Classroom Presentation

Jose Rosario-Gonzalez, a Florida high-school teacher, has resigned rather than face termination, after a YouTube video titled “Gay Threesome Sex” appeared on a projector in his class, according to WTSP News in Tampa Bay.

Rosario-Gonzalez, who teaches at T. Dewitt Taylor Middle-High School in Pierson, FL, got into hot water last month when he connected his school-issued laptop into the classroom’s projector to show a video to his class. As he scrolled through his uploads, the gay-sex title popped up.

“Mr. Rosario was on YouTube, he scrolled through his videos and there was history videos except for one,” one student wrote. “This was one was titled ’Gay Threesome Sex.’ The whole class was saying ’ewww’ and ’What is that doing on there?’ and he just kept scrolling and didn’t say anything.”

It’s not clear if students saw any visuals from the clip or how an explicit video appeared on YouTube, which normally bans such content.

Told he would be fired if students’ allegations of the incident proved true, Rosario-Gonzalez, 53, resigned his position after 12 years at the school. He claims”did this on his own time, in the privacy of his home and it was never his intention to show students.”

Apparently, Rosario-Gonzalez has been reprimanded for being inappropriate before: He once gave students the link to his personal site—which had adult sexual content—in order to get class notes. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that, despite his resignation, Rosario-Gonzalez is still under investigation by the Department of Education.
