A former Houston-area elementary music teacher faces child pornography charges for allegedly posing as a girl on Facebook to solicit nude photos of boys.

Derrick Allan Gossett worked for the Spring Independent School District. Officials with Anderson Elementary School put the 32-year-old educator on administrative leave Tuesday amid the investigation and then he resigned.

Gossett was charged with online solicitation of a minor, promotion of child pornography, online impersonation and three counts of possession of child pornography. Investigators say Gossett allegedly pretended to be a 12-year-old girl online. The Harris County Constable's Office didn't immediately provide additional details

Gossett's bond was set at $140,000. Jail records show he was not in custody Wednesday. No publicly listed phone number could immediately be located for Gossett, who faces a court appearance Thursday.
