A teacher in a Queens New York school is under scrutiny today for allegedly forcing her students to make holiday cards for her incarcerated boyfriend. The man was charged with child pornography along with other crimes.

Melissa Dean, the teacher in question, told her students to draw up over 20 cards for the inmate stating "it's a nice thing to do". Dean is accused of mailing the cards in December which contained two of the students home mailing addresses.

Her boyfriend was found with 27 pornographic images of children and he was also brought up on weapons charges.

The teacher has since been terminated from her job at the school.
