Teacher placed on administrative leave for watching adult videos during class

A Florida high school teacher has been placed on administrative leave after students allegedly caught him watching hardcore gay porn on his cellphone during class.

Vadi Velez-Gonzalez was a ninth grade English teacher at Mulberry High School in Tampa Bay.

According to a student, Gonzalez was sitting at his desk in the back of the room when she approached to ask a question.

That’s when she noticed what he had on his phone.

Shocked by what she saw, she returned a few minutes later pretending to throw something away in the trash. Unbeknownst to Gonzalez, she was actually filming him.

Within minutes, she Snapchatted the video to her friends. By the end of the day, the entire school had seen it.

“You can do that, just not at school when you have kids in your class because that’s just nastiness,” freshmen Destiny Potter, who saw the video, told WFTS-TV.

School officials quickly contacted police. A search warrant found that Gonzalez had visited the porn site more than 380 times in the past two weeks. Many of his visits happened during school hours.

Gonzalez has been charged with four counts of showing obscene material to minors. Bond is set at $8,000.
