SAN ANTONIO -- A Spanish teacher at Wagner High School resigned Friday after pornographic photos appeared on his personal computer while his students watched, according to Judson Independent School District officials.     

The high school instructor had set up an instructional video for a substitute teacher to show his class while he was gone, Judson ISD spokesman Steve Linscomb said. Everything was fine until the video finished playing.

That's when, district officials said, the teacher's log-in for an adult website popped up on the screen with explicit photos.

The substitute teacher immediately shutdown the computer and reported the incident to the school.

Judson ISD told KENS 5 that using a personal computer with school equipment violated its policy. Furthermore, the district said there's no evidence that suggests the teacher used school equipment to view pornography.

The teacher's voluntary resignation came after the district put him on administrative leave.
