Teacher reprimanded, transferred after sexual harassment complaints

Published: Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at 06:26 PM.

The instances included sexually suggestive comments to staff and conversations with students about his sexual experiences.

One student described Fowler’s behavior as “kind of creepy,” according to report.

When given the opportunity to contest the report, neither Fowler nor any other people involved decided to appeal the findings.However, Fowler did make a couple of requests.

After saying he “could no longer be an effective teacher at Baker,” Fowler asked to be moved to another school.

He also asked for additional training about sexual harassment and professional conduct.

The school district granted his requests even as he was cautioned that any more violations of professional conduct “will result in a recommendation for termination.”

The report will be sent to Florida’s Professional Practice Office for review or further action.
