Science teacher ‘grabbed his crotch and pretended to give birth during explicit sex ed lessons’

A high school science teacher who allegedly  touched himself while making inappropriate comments and gestures before his students has  been banned from teaching in all New York City schools.

Dyrel Bartee, the former teacher at Grover  Cleveland High School in Queens is accused of an escalation of inappropriate  behaviour during sexual education including pretending to deliver a baby while  reclining on a table.

‘This is the doctor’s favourite part because  they get to put their fingers inside their women patients,’ Bartee, 53,  allegedly told his students according to a report obtained by the New York Daily  News.

‘I’ve seen it for myself. He was a creep,’  17-year-old Leslie Sanchez told CBS New  York.

‘The way he looked at girls wasn’t  appropriate, and me, I really didn’t feel comfortable. But I didn’t really say  anything,’ she said.

Bartee was removed after online complaints by  his students launched an investigation.

According to its findings, in May of 2011,  Bartee conducted a lesson on child birth, reclining on his desk and spreading  his legs to demonstrate the procedure.

Witnesses: An investigation into Dyrel Bartee's conduct gave enough evidence to remove the teacher, which Leslie Sanchez, pictured, confirmed as uncomfortable and strange

‘Men like being doctors because they like to  touch women,’ he said, according to the report.

Explaining the effects of venereal disease,  he also allegedly ‘held his hands in his groin area and made an “oohing”  sound.’

In November of 2011 the teacher was placed on  desk duty, according to the Daily News while still retaining a $80,987 salary.  In April he resigned.

According to the school, Bartee started as a  substitute Biology and Science teacher in 1999 before being employed at Grover  Cleveland in 2005.
