A teacher who taught at some of New York City’s most elite preparatory schools was accused of possessing an astounding amount of child pornography on his computer and sharing images with others, according to the Daily News. John E. Thomas, 28, was charged in federal court with possessing child porn and released on $50,000 bail. Thomas previously taught at Horace Mann Nursery School on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and Friend’s Seminary, and was expected to begin teaching fifth grade students this fall. He had also served as a camp counselor for one of the city’s Y locations.
