“Romantic photo” leads to Brooklyn teacher’s suspension

Posted on Wednesday, January 21st, 2015    

A male teacher at Origins High School in Brooklyn was suspended from his work after an allegedly romantic photo of him and a former student circulated online, Madame Noire reported on January 13.

In the photo that was passed among students, gym teacher John Ramirez was seen with a former female student with her hand on his chin and her lips on his cheek. The female student, who was part of a flag football team managed by Ramirez, was identified as Tamara Stimphil. School administrators immediately ordered the teacher’s suspension after they were notified about the photo. The relationship between Ramirez and Stimphil was unclear. Ramirez will continue to receive pay until the investigation has concluded.
