A New York City pub­lic school teacher accused of engag­ing in a sex act with a stu­dent has con­tin­ued to teach at a dif­fer­ent school, rais­ing seri­ous con­cerns about the city’s han­dling of such allegations.

Dulaina Almonte, a 33-year-old French teacher, was fired from her posi­tion at Har­ry S. Tru­man High School in the Bronx in 2020 after a Spe­cial Com­mis­sion­er of Inves­ti­ga­tion (SCI) sub­stan­ti­at­ed claims of her inap­pro­pri­ate behav­ior with students.

This includ­ed send­ing a stag­ger­ing 28,075 late-night text mes­sages to a 17-year-old female stu­dent over a 14-month peri­od and exchang­ing near­ly 1,900 texts with a male 12th-grader.

Despite these damn­ing find­ings, Almonte has man­aged to secure a teach­ing posi­tion at a Bronx char­ter school, AECI 2: NYC Char­ter High School for Engi­neer­ing and Inno­va­tion. Shock­ing­ly, she has boast­ed, “I can’t be guilty if I’m still a teacher. Can’t touch me!”

The SCI report also revealed that the NYPD inves­ti­gat­ed a claim from a Tru­man High School stu­dent alleg­ing that she and a for­mer pupil were “involved in a sex act” in a classroom.

Almonte denied the accu­sa­tion, and no arrest was made, but the inci­dent led to a lengthy SCI probe that doc­u­ment­ed her exten­sive con­tact and inap­pro­pri­ate behav­ior with students.

Experts have expressed con­cern over the lack of account­abil­i­ty for such preda­to­ry teach­ers, as the city and state’s dis­ci­pline process often allows them to con­tin­ue work­ing with chil­dren and teens, even after their mis­con­duct has been substantiated.

New York, unlike some oth­er states, does not main­tain a pub­lic data­base expos­ing proven cas­es of edu­ca­tor sex­u­al mis­con­duct, mak­ing it eas­i­er for these teach­ers to move to oth­er schools.
