Porn-watching Wisconsin teacher apologizes to parents

MADISON, Wis. — Acknowledging he “made a mistake” four years ago, the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District teacher fired — then reinstated by court order — for looking at pornography at school has penned a letter to the parents of his seventh-grade students apologizing for his actions.

“I know that many of you have concerns about my return to the classroom. Four years ago I made a mistake that showed a lack of judgment and forethought. I want you to know how sorry I am that I allowed this to occur,” wrote Andrew Harris in a letter titled, “Welcome Parents of Block 7R.”

“I also want to emphasize that no students were involved nor was my teaching affected. I am not defending my actions, but I want to assure you that my classroom will be a safe learning environment for your student.”
