A Brooklyn High School, Facebook and a Viral Lesbian Teacher Scandal

December 10, 2009

(ChattahBox)— James Madison High School in Brooklyn, NY has been receiving salacious tabloid coverage in recent days, involving the extracurricular activities of three young female teachers. It’s hard to filter out the facts from the rampant gossip, but what’s known is that two language teachers were alone together in an empty classroom. A school janitor claims he found them both “undressed.” Thinking they were students, he reported them to school officials.

And another teacher has been accused of inappropriate contact with a male pupil, prompting the tabloids to dub the school “Horndog High.” Now, why has this story become an international incident? Facebook.

French teacher Cindy Mauro, 33, and Spanish instructor and school dean Alini Brito, 29, who is married, were the two teachers discovered by the school janitor Robert Colantuoni, on Nov. 20, apparently engaged in a wild act of lesbian love. The students were in the school auditorium enjoying a school talent show.

The lawyers for the two teachers, said they “categorically deny the salacious allegations.”

“They are both exemplary teachers whose reputations and careers are being irreparably harmed by unfounded rumors and innuendo. They intend to vigorously address these allegations in the proper forum,” said the lawyers in a statement.

Meanwhile, Mauro and Brito have been removed from the school and assigned to a “rubber room,” while their cases are investigated. The misconduct investigation could take years.

The school department acknowledged that there was an incident and an investigation for misconduct.

School department spokeswoman Margie Feinberg said, “There was an incident in the evening when there was a school performance. The two teachers have been reassigned pending the outcome of an investigation.”

As can be expected, the tale of the two teachers discovered by the school janitor locked in a naked lesbian embrace, quickly made the rounds through the school. The two teachers were popular with students and several students decided to create a Facebook page named, “The infamous Ms. Brito rumor,” to have a forum to discuss the scandal.

The existence of the Facebook page attracted attention and the “school janitor caught two lesbian teachers story,” soon made it to the tabloids, using comments left on the Facebook wall. People from as far way as Australia have joined the Facebook site, which is now up to 1,316 fans.

One of the Facebook comments making the rounds is from a 18-year-old senior who said of Mauro: “She dressed like a teenage girl — she’d wear low-cut tops, shorts, three-quarter length jeans. She was kinda sexy. You could see that she was the kind of person who would flirt.”

The students who started “The infamous Ms. Brito rumor,” Facebook page, now feel responsible for drawing international attention to the incident involving their two teachers, acknowledging that the story has now reached “Tiger Woods” status. There is now this statement posted on the Facebook wall:

“ATTN FANS:Our purpose was just to discuss the rumor as madison students and now its spread even outside of NYC. Now the media has impacted their lives & has portrayed this group as “THE BAD GUY.” Therefore, we, the group Admins, want the fans honest opinion on this: If you guys feel the group is to blame, tell us, and …we’ll put it to rest, we don’t nor ever did wish to harm anyone.”

Seems like it’s a little late. The damage has already been done. And there is no question the story has gained extra traction, because it involves two young and attractive women, who have been accused of hot lesbian sex. If the two teachers were involved in inappropriate behavior on school property during a student event, they certainly should be disciplined. But this whole story has the feel of sensationalism.

The other teacher at James Madison High School involved in a scandal, is another young woman, Social Studies teacher Allison Musacchio, 31. The ex-girlfriend of a male pupil at the school apparently noticed her ex-boyfriend’s cell number on Musacchio’s cell phone. School officials investigated and discovered more than 200 texts and calls between Musacchio and the male student.

School officials deemed the amount of contact inappropriate and removed Musacchio from the classroom, and also sent her to a “rubber room,” pending an investigation.

Musacchio denies the charges and she supposedly told a neighbor that the allegations were false: “She said, ‘Are you crazy? With my Greek background, I would never do something like that. I have morals and respect.'”

Two hundred cell phone contacts between a student and a teacher does seem suspect. According to school sources, she was previously investigated for a relationship with a student, but the investigation was dropped, because the boy was of legal age and no longer at the school.

Social media and the Internet, for better or worse, have changed the nature of journalism and reporting of the “news.” Just ask Tiger Woods.
