    Basically, I was taught in Years 3 and 4 by a really nice teacher. In fact, he was my favourite teacher. He later went on to teach my cousin for Year 3, and she loved him. Him and me were always quite close and he was always telling my cousin stories about me when i was younger, and saying i was his favourite, so we had a good teacher-student relationship.
    But last year he left the school quite hastily and noone knew why. It all seemed strange, as he loved the school. But we figured maybe he wanted to retire early or perhaps he was moving. Noone gave it a second thought.
    But a week ago a letter arrives from the school. The letter tells us that said teacher was fired from the school as he was found to be in possession of child pornography which he was distributing as part of a child pornography ring.
    They say that no children from my school were part of the pornography collection, which is a relief. But it makes my blood run cold to know that he had every opportunity to use my cousin and myself and the other children for his despicable collection, and that he thought of children in that way.
    It makes me sick :(

    That must have been hard to take in. If you can't trust someone like that, who can you trust?

    If no one from your school was forcesul brought into it.

    This might help you to cope with this "awful surprise". He might of of had a duel persona (so to speak). While you can not seem to respect him a person you can at least respect him as an influential teacher.

    This might not be the right thing to say but it is the best I can come up with.

    Seems to be a lot of teachers getting caught over the last few years. It gives them access to lots of children. I often wonder if any of the teachers I had were involved and just didn't get caught.

    It's really creepy. I'm sorry that you had to go through that.
