NEWTON (AP) — The Newton elementary school teacher facing child pornography charges has resigned before the school district had a chance to fire him.

The superintendent says 34-year-old David Ettlinger submitted his letter of resignation on Tuesday, the day before a disciplinary hearing was scheduled to be held.

Ettlinger, who lives in Boston, had been on paid leave since his arrest last month.

Ettlinger is accused of recording a sexual assault on a family friend under the age of 14.

State police also allege he had images of child pornography on his home computer.

Ettlinger was a second-grade teacher at the city’s Underwood Elementary School for 11 years. He has pleaded not guilty.
