High School Teacher Resigns Over Photos

A Page High School teacher has resigned after inappropriate pictures of him surfaced on a photo-sharing site.

Guilford County Schools officials say 27-year-old William Saunders resigned on Friday after officials confronted him about photos he posted to his Instagram account.

A montage shows several photos of Saunders, including a naked shot in which he is cupping his genitals. A student shared the photos with a school resource officer, who notified school officials.

District officials say the photos violate their social media policy.

Saunders started working for Guilford County Schools in 2004 and served as a marketing teacher. He was named Guilford County Schools "Employee of the Month" for December.
