Quintin Cedeno, Queens Principal, Charged with Asking Students for Sex, Fondling

cedenoqueens.jpg
The principal of the High School for Construction Trades, Engineering and Architecture in Queens, Quintin Cedeno, sounded like an good, engaged educator when the Daily News talked to him about the school's alternative energy programs: Construction Trades didn't restrict its student body to high achievers, he told them, because "we all remember where we came from."

And when he couldn't get funding for a school librarian, he sought out college students to volunteer and "get this library opened and available to the school community."

This must have made it doubly surprising when Cedeno was reassigned in October on suspicion of sexual misconduct. Now a report from the NYPD Special Commissioner of Investigation for school charges Cedeno with soliciting oral sex from four male students.

Cedeno is also charged with fondling some boys, and engaging in "electronic communications" of an inappropriate nature with students.

The Commissioner, Richard J. Condon, recommends that Cedeno be removed from the school system, and criminal charges seem likely.

Cedeno previously taught math at the East New York High School of Transit Technology. A commenter at Rate My Teachers said of Cedeno in January of 2004: "be [careful?] people... he gets a little to close to the little ones :-0"

wow I feel so bad for that school. If he is guilty, good for him. If he is innocent, bad for him.

I only hope truth, justice, and the Ameircan way prevail in the end (or begining)

Wow. This incredibly insane. This is such a dire situation and so many ignorant people are taking this as a joke. A principal in this situation should be having felt heartfelt sympathy from you people. Seriously, this brothers me so much,. So you are upset.

"I do commend the faculty to a certain extent but faculty should have nipped this in the bud because it's just not normal for a principal to eat lunch with their students. "

haha bud sounds like butt

"And I'm sure they have witnessed unusual "hanging out" behavior that should have been reported immediately. You just don't hang out with the principal on this level."

Re post at 12:27 today.

I understand and commend the faculty for her dedication in making sure this situation was handled appropriately (involving the board of ed,etc) but is it not the faculty who also witnessed these kids eating lunch in the principal's office? unacceptable interaction! How come this was never reported? Principals should be attending their business of running the school and not have the time to eat lunch with his or her students. Don't get me wrong, I do commend the faculty to a certain extent but faculty should have nipped this in the bud because it's just not normal for a principal to eat lunch with their students. And I'm sure they have witnessed unusual "hanging out" behavior that should have been reported immediately. You just don't hang out with the principal on this level.

To the MORON that posted the following:

"We all know that the juniors Jimmy, Jorham, Galimi and someone else from their possy did this. There isn't any hiding.I hope you guys are happy that you ruined a 33 year old's life."

Let me tell you something:

1. I am JIMMY'S Mother, and am not afraid to say so here in this forum, unlike YOU who is hiding behind your "anonymous" post.

2. Because one of the students involved trusted me enough to come to me with what was happening, I I SAW THE TEXTS, THE IM'S and THE E-MAILS months ago when it was still going on!

3. I was personally interviewed TWICE by detectives from the Board of Education during the investigation and was shown indisputable evidence that would make your empty little head SPIN!

So before you go throwing MY SON Jimmy, Jorham, Galimi and their "posse" under the bus with your unintelligent and unfounded remarks....understand this - the boys that chose to come forward and stop the MONSTER that is Cedeno should all be applauded for their bravery, integrity and sensibility! If one of the victims was your little brother or cousin, you would WANT kids like them to speak out then, wouldn't you??

Your ignorance is pathetic. And so are YOU!

u a loser~burm~

I don't understand what "The Possy" is trying to say. Explain your thoughts better and I don't mean that in a bad way. Try rewriting a post and explain yourself. Thank you.

For one You want to post false information about people in the situation that you obviously know nothing about!

You want to put certain people on blast but uou dont want any one to know who u are. Frankly your wrong about everything.. we have actually proof about what happened.

If you feel so strongly about the situation and your so sure about what happened and whats happening, then you should confront us rather then hiding behind an "Anonymous" name on a blog.

Be a man or women and speak up for yourself and confront us face to face you obvioulsy know were we go to school and who we hang out with.

My heart goes out to the boys and their families. No one should have to go through that kind of ordeal. To the proud mother of Jimmy. I applaud you for your courage and strength in guiding these children through this (especially the one who confided in you). Thank goodness he had you. To the previous comment I agree that a thorough investigation throughout the whole school is necessary.

Many of the teachers at this school were hired because they are highly qualified educators, not because they have any relation to Cedeno or his behaviors. No one should put any of the faculty at the same level as him. Please be reminded that it was members of the faculty who helped bring this all to light.

Why are some students in denial about Mr. Cedeno? They have proof of emails, texts, and phone calls he made to these students. He admitted to inappropriate touching. Wake up idiots. Also, If students are allowed to eat lunch in his office why was this happening? I hope this inappropriate, unacceptable and disguisting behavior is not going on within the school. An investigation needs to be performed thru out the school to make sure these kids are safe. After all he was in charge of hiring most of the teachers and/or faculity there.
