PIERSON, Fla. -- A Volusia County high school teacher accused of having a YouTube video titled "Gay Threesome Sex" appear on a projector in front of his class resigned this week rather than face termination.
Jose Rosario-Gonzalez, 53, a ninth-grade social studies teacher at T. Dewitt Taylor Middle-High School, which serves grades six to 12 in Pierson, resigned on Tuesday.
According to Volusia County Schools, Rosario-Gonzalez was informed on May 25 that allegations against him, if substantiated, would lead to a recommendation of his termination. He chose to resign instead, school officials said. He was put on 3 days unpaid leave before he resigned.
According to officials, a student's parent reported that Rosario-Gonzalez had his computer hooked up to a projector in his classroom, and, after he accessed YouTube, the title of the sex video appeared.
Rosario-Gonzalez, who has taught for 12 years, did not deny the incident and said he "did this on his own time, in the privacy of his home and it was never his intention to show students," according to school documents.
Several students made written statements confirming that the entire class saw the title of the sex video.
"Mr. Rosario was on YouTube, he scrolled through his videos and there was history videos except for one," a student wrote. "This was one was titled 'Gay Threesome Sex.' The whole class was saying 'eww' and 'What is that doing on there?' and he just kept scrolling and didn't say anything."
School officials said there were several files on Rosario-Gonzalez's computer classified as homosexual pornography.
Rosario-Gonzalez received an overall "satisfactory" evaluation in 2009 and 2010, according to school documents. His evaluation for 2011 was redacted for confidential reasons.
