IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A University of Iowa teaching assistant who accidentally emailed nude pictures of herself to math students is no longer assigned to teach their class.
University spokesman Tom Moore confirmed the assignment change, saying Thursday she remains a TA but is performing non-teaching duties.
The woman included the pictures as attachments on an email she sent Tuesday night to 28 students in a pre-calculus class for business students. She was apparently trying to attach the solutions to homework problems instead.
She has told university officials she regrets her mistake, and Moore called the incident unfortunate for all involved. The mixup became public after students in the class took to social media to describe what happened. The story soon went viral.
The university isn’t identifying the teaching assistant, citing federal privacy laws.
