Teacher accused of showing porn to his 7th-grade students in class

The Sweetwater Union School District said Thursday a teacher at a Chula Vista middle school was under investigation for an incident inside a classroom.The teacher had allegedly played a pornographic video for his middle school class, officials announced Thursday.

The Sweetwater Union School District refused to divulge the Rancho Del Rey Middle School teacher’s name or any details about what happened.  While it was alleged that the unnamed teacher showed porn to his class, his class students told KSWB the teacher mistakenly showed porn during class.

According to students at the Chula Vista school, their seventh-grade teacher plugged his iPad into a projector during their fourth-period world cultures class and porn was displayed. Students then reported it to school leaders.

“Next thing we know on the big screen we see pornography…we see two men having sex and after that, he said ‘oh how the heck did that get on there’ and everyone was just wondering and shocked and scared,” said Dylan Lazo, a student in the class.

When the news spread to the parents of the students, Principal Anna Pedroza sent an email to parents, stating the school’s position on the issue.

“Today, Rancho del Rey Middle and the Sweetwater School District is investigating an allegation that inappropriate material was seen by students in one classroom during one class period. An internal investigation was immediately started and is in the process of being conducted.”

The district said the teacher was not detained or arrested and it is handling the incident as a personnel matter. The district has not commented on whether the teacher will be placed on leave during the investigation.

“He has a family, he shouldn’t be doing that…I mean he has a good family he talks about a lot so I don’t know why he would do something like that,” Dylan added.
