More than a year after two Madison High School teachers were busted in an alleged lesbian romp on school grounds, one of the teachers has been dismissed.

City officials fired the 30-year-old Spanish teacher after receiving a report from the state arbitrator late last month, which said it was “more likely than not” the teachers were having a “sexual encounter.”

Brito, though, claims she was just getting an insulin shot from co-worker Cindy Mauro, not in the midsts of a steamy affair in a classroom at James Madison High School (3787 Bedford Avenue), according to her testimony.

The decision to terminate comes thirteen months since the incident was exposed by the Daily News. In that time, the teachers have been reassigned to the Education Department’s infamous “rubber rooms,” where they continued to receive pay. No decision has been issued regarding Mauro, and she, too, will continue to receive pay.

The two were busted in November 2009 when a janitor stumbled into a classroom with the teachers allegedly getting busy. According to the janitor’s testimony, Brito was topless with Mauro nude, kneeling between her legs. Meanwhile, students were attending a sing-and-dance competition in the school auditorium.

According to the Daily News:

Brito, a diabetic, told investigators she started feeling ill and asked her French teacher colleague to “check her blood sugar,” according to the report.
“Let’s go upstairs,” Mauro said, according to the report. “I have sugar and candy in my room.”
By the time they got to Mauro’s classroom on the third floor, Brito said her “knees got weak,” so she lay down on the floor.
Brito took off her sweater and Mauro placed it under her colleague’s head, Brito said in the report, then Mauro put a chair under Brito’s legs “to aid her circulation.”
Brito said Mauro was kneeling next to her with the lights off when the janitor popped in. Mauro was fully clothed, Brito told investigators.
The janitor, who said he saw two topless women rolling around on the floor, summoned school safety officer Ruth Reyes.
She described what she saw in Room 337 quite differently.
“[Brito] was naked on the floor… and I saw the blond between her legs, and when I opened the door, she looked up and told me to shut the door,” Reyes told investigators.
