Teacher caught masturbating on Zoom blames bad luck, claims he’s ‘not a pervert’

A teaching assistant caught masturbating during an online lesson says he didn't do it on purpose.

Marc Schack, who works at Montgomery County Public School in Maryland, US, was seen engaging in "inappropriate behaviour."

The Zoom class were stunned to see the support staff member enjoying the moment as they were getting down to work.

But he says his career could be in ruins because of bad luck – and he didn't know the camera was on.

The teaching aide is now on administrative leave, he confirmed, as an investigation is launched.

Some students have reportedly started sharing the video online.

But protesting his innocence in Bethesda Magazine, Schack claimed he had thought he was logged out of the Zoom session when the last lesson was over.

"I had no clue that Zoom was still on. Why would I do that?" he said.

"That’s my job. My career. I had no clue that Zoom was on. I mean, that’s just crazy behaviour."

He was then interviewed on Fox and he explained: "I don’t know what else to say.

"I just found out today. I’m pretty disturbed about the whole situation."

He went on: "I didn’t do anything intentionally, not malicious. I meant no harm because I didn’t even know I was on the recording.

"I’m a good guy, you know. I was just in the privacy of my own home and I didn’t mean any ill will. I didn’t do anything on purpose."

The school's principal Alana Murray has sent a letter to parents to inform them about a worker who "engaged in inappropriate behaviour".

She urged students "who may have this video posted on social media platforms" to "take down the content and refrain from sharing with other students."

He has worked for Montgomery County Public School for more than 20 years.

The helper says he learned about the video two days after and insisted he was "not a pervert".
