DUNLAP, Ill. -- A Dunlap teacher has resigned after administrators found he was secretly video taping students.

Gordon Mills turned in his resignation Saturday.

This is video of him promoting a play earlier this year on News 25's Live at 5.

The Dunlap School district says it was notified Friday afternoon there was "inappropriate material" on a teacher's computer.

Administrators investigated and found Mills had video clips with upward camera angles to "view clothed private areas of students."

The district says Mills took the videos at Dunlap Valley Middle School and Dunlap High School.

The Peoria County Sheriff's department has forwarded the investigation to the State's Attorney's office.
