UPDATE: Nashua superintendent looking into any complaints about ex-student teacher who masturbated to student photos
NASHUA - Superintendent of Schools Mark Conrad told NH1 News on Friday that the school is investigating any complaints about a man who student taught at Nashua High School South.
The man taught social studies at John Stark Regional High School until he recently resigned after a police report detailed him using students' photos for self-gratification.
When NH1 News called Conrad on Thursday, he had no knowledge of the Weare investigation.
Conrad said the man was a student teacher during the 2013-14 school year. He said the school has not received any complaints about the man at this time.
The man "admitted to messaging back and forth" with a 17-year-old student from South and having the girl send "one picture of herself in a Halloween costume."
It's still unclear whether Nashua police were notified of the investigation. Messages NH1 News left Friday for the Nashua and Weare police departments have not yet been returned.
Back in December of 2015, the principal of John Stark High School recalled being notified about a now-former teacher, who reportedly had photos of a student on cellphones, hard drives and school issued laptops in his possession and "mixed in a folder" with alleged teen porn.
NH1 News did not name the teacher on television because Weare police did not charge him with anything criminal because they lacked evidence.
However, his name is listed on the public documents from police.
Police reports show the man had an attraction to "teen girls." The ex-teacher admitted to police he had "hidden files within his phone and personal computer.” The report also claims the ex-teacher admitted to "fantasizing to having sexual intercourse with (the victim) while masturbating."
The victim at John Stark was around 14 or 15 years old.
