Students: Cumberland teacher felt sick, taught lesson before lying on cot
Posted April 27
Fayetteville, N.C. — Cumberland County Schools says it’s investigating after video surfaced on social media showing a teacher at Terry Sanford High School lying down on a cot while students sat nearby.
Superintendent Frank Till says the school district is investigating the video. The teacher, Nicole Montunnas, told officials she was feeling ill, Till said.
Several students who spoke to WRAL News also said Montunnas told them she was feeling sick. They said the video was taken in the last few minutes of class and that Montunnas had taught for about an hour before lying down.
The video was posted on Twitter Tuesday morning, but has since been removed. The school system said it had received multiple calls about the incident.
It’s unclear whether Montunnas worked Wednesday. Montunnas and the principal of the school could not be reached for comment Wednesday evening.
