DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas middle school teacher could be disciplined after showing a nude photo of herself to students in class.

The Dallas Independent School District on Tuesday sent a letter to parents of students at J.L. Long Middle School.

Principal Danielle Peters says an "inappropriate" photo was inadvertently shown Monday to students by a teacher. The letter says it's an embarrassing situation for the teacher and students. Peters says the matter is being handled administratively.

Officials didn't immediately release the name of the teacher or say how she came to show the naked image of herself to students.
