A physical education teacher resigned after he accidentally showed pornographic images in class, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The sixth grade teacher meant to show Sandy Springs Charter Middle School students an instructional video Tuesday from his personal laptop, Channel 2 reported.

Instead, officials said, “a few seconds” of porn were displayed on the screen.

Fulton County Schools investigated the teacher, who eventually submitted a letter of resignation, Channel 2 reported.

“It is our expectation that teachers and staff maintain a safe and appropriate instructional environment for all students,” a Fulton County Schools official said in a statement to the news station. “Our focus will continue to be student achievement and the safety or our students and staff.”

The teacher’s name was not released.
