Johnson, did you say Johnson? Nice use of a district computer. If the picture was intendend for his wife, why was the ipad at school?

The teacher never should have been using school property for his own personal use. Especially something so personal. He knew there was a chance that one of the kids would accidentally see this. This is not what school property was meant to be used for. He should not be allowed back to work at the school. Every time these kids look at him now, they will remember this picture. I don't understand why the other kids are mad at the child who told. Have they seen pictures like this of the teacher before and thought it was okay? It just doesn't make sense that they are mad at her. If they haven't seen this before, would they feel the same way if they had seen the picture for themselves? Somesthing is not right about this.

I don't understand why people think that others wish to see their genatalia. I know that if my husband sent a photo of his privates I would be disgusted. They are called privates for a reason after all. So keep it private! Anyone with an once of common sense would know that texting or emailing photos, of any kind, is in the public domain. There is always the chance that your photo could be sent to the wrong person which it was. I don't think the teacher should be fired. What he did was in bad taste but an accident. Transfer him to another school after a formal reprimand and an apology to the students who saw the email.

I wish Ted Williams well however he chose the life he lived. Please drop this story. He doesn't really want help just the publicity and the $ that comes with it. Instead focus on some heroes such as teachers, police officers,ER docs, etc. You get the idea!

Where exactly did she get the IPAD 10TV. Did she take it from the teachers desk? Was it given to her to use? or did she see it on the desk and grab it?
I think these are all questions that need answered before anyone gets fired.
Yes, the teacher should have had more sense than to have that kind of thing on a machine he is using at work, but does he need fired for it? NO, probably not.
Oh and I thought your penis was consider the "private parts" or was the teacher holding a copy of Howard Stern's movie in the photo.

The use of ipods and other electronic equipment are now a permanent part of our lives. I get why he had an ipod. What I don't get is why he sent pics of his genatalia to his wife.

The senior class of 2011 currently uses 8 year old history books in POD classes but teachers have iPads.

Shame on the teacher for misusing public property.

Shame on the school sytem for misusing public money.

no matter how inappropriate this is, i can NOT believe that this devastated this girl as much as the mother is claiming. the mother OBVIOUSLY has dollar signs in her eyes and is having the girl "play it up". there is NO WAY an 11 year old, who has near constant access to the internet would NOT have seen a penis before. also, when i was a kid, if this had happened in class, it would have been the teacher who would have been humiliated as the entire class would have thought it was the funniest thing they had ever seen and would talk about it non stop and hold it over the teacher's head. if the mother wishes to prove me wrong, let's see a public statement saying she will not pursue any financial compensation and will be happy with the dismissal of the teacher.

Make sure everyone know the facts before you all call for him to be fired. Is there a chance this was his own IPad and the student assumed it was one of the schools? If it was his own property, but mistakenly used by the student, then I can't see him being fired. The embarassment will probably be enough punishment. If it is the school property, then I think he should be fired. If everyone that used today's technology that ended up having it come back to bitr them, a lot of people would be without jobs.

The teacher should be fired however good luck getting ODE to revoke his teaching license. As for the "trauma" the child has experienced, it sounds like the parents are going to capitalize on the situation -- I'm sure their child will never be the same UGH! Don't get me wrong... the teacher should not be permitted to ever teach again.

It's a shame the picture was taken on school property. Even more of a shame a student saw it. I'm sure she will be fine with her counseling. And it sounds like the teacher was not trying to send it or give access to a student. It was for his wife for pete's sake.

For those who say it is "gross" to recieve a txt or pic of private parts: it's a shame you don't live life to it's fullest, especially with your significant other. Some people like to keep their relationships alive along with the passion. Unfortunately, I don't see that happening for any of you that are so "grossed out" by the idea of keeping the flame burning. Live a little, seriously

oh good GOD, it's people like YOU that are the problem. if the penis and vagina were thought of the same way the elbow and neck are, there wouldnt BE a problem with someone seeing it. in the middle east, you can be beaten for showing your ankle. in some nations, it is perverse for a woman to show ANY portion of her body other than eyes and hands. would you like that? it's the same thing with "bad words" they are only BAD because we SAY they are bad. all words are made up of letters and letters are neither good or bad. it is arbitrary definition of the arrangement of these letters that we associate as "good" and "bad". so the good and bad are in US, not the words. same thing for body parts.(i dont REALLY expect you to have the intelligence to understand this point though)

why is "pen is" censored and "vagina" isn't? a vagina brings a lot more misery to the world than a pen is.
