Fletcher was reassigned after a Zoom class two weeks into the school year which involved spaghetti, a shirtless male and worksheets, the report says. Several students recorded video of the incident and shared it on social media. Fletcher did not give an explanation of her actions to investigators.

A bio for Fletcher has been removed from the website.

Amanda Fletcher Zoom Video

The New York Post obtained a report from the Special Commissioner of Investigation, which details an account of the incident from video and witness statements. Students at the prestigious school were watching a live Zoom class when she “appeared to suck the nipple of an unidentified topless male” while she “rocked her head back and forth,” said a report from the Special Commissioner of Investigation for city schools.

“Following this act, Fletcher’s face turned in full view of the screen, and she gyrated her shoulders and smiled,” the report says.

Before the alleged sexual act, she was “eating spaghetti” with a shirtless man behind her, and afterward, she “resumed teaching and discussing a worksheet,” a student told investigators, according to the report dated October 29, 2020.

Students took videos of the strange turn in class September 30, 2020, and several students shared the videos on Snapchat and other social media platforms.

Amanda Fletcher Fired

The Department of Education “reassigned” Fletcher after receiving the report from the NYC SCI, and “will pursue disciplinary action,” DOE spokeswoman Danielle Filson told the New York Post. In addition to an account of the alleged inappropriate actions, the SCI urged the DOE to strengthen its training for teachers on “appropriate and acceptable behavior while interacting remotely with students.”

The report said teachers should not have anyone appear on camera who is not involved with the class, and should refrain from “eating or snacking; smoking, vaping or in any other way using tobacco; and any other activities that might prevent an educator from maintaining total focus on the classroom.”

“This behavior is absolutely unacceptable,” DOE spokeswoman Danielle Filson told the New York Post of the incident.
