South Daytona parents hold meeting after teacher charged with child porn

Elementary teacher Matthew Graziotti arrested last week

SOUTH DAYTONA, Fla. - Even school administrators at Warner Christian Academy said they need time to cope, with the allegations against a well-liked teacher.

The FBI arrested Matthew Graziotti last week in the production and distribution of child pornography. Sandra Oliver sat next to him at church.

"Never in my wildest dreams, talking with him that day, (did I think) that he was the monster that he was," Oliver said.

Now, the task is finding the children victimized in the thousands of photos and videos authorities found inside his home. No children from the academy have been identified.

However, the FBI called Sarah Haynes to ask about her 8-year-old son, who was in Graziotti's summer camp.

"They asked me some questions and then they wanted me to send pictures of my son, and so I sent them two photographs," Haynes said. "He was never in a situation, to my knowledge, that he would have been a victim of Mr. Graziotti, but he's really private and every kid is different.

Haynes said she doesn't think her son was a victim, but as authorities try to identify the children involved, parents wait for answers.

"It's horrible. I'm telling you, it's horrible. I cry," said another mom. "You don't want it to happen to your family. You don't want it to happen to anyone you know. You don't want it to happen to anyone, period. It's scary."

Local 6 has learned that Warner Christian Academy now has counselors available to the children and that they will work to train teachers to better help kids deal with this.

They are also asking parents to talk to their kids about how to recognize the warning signs if they might be victims.

School representatives said they knew nothing about the allegations against Grazzioti, but it's not the first time he was accused of inappropriate actions. He was under investigation 10 years ago for inappropriate contact with kids. That investigation has been re-opened.

Days before his arrest, a boy claimed Graziotti touched him during a summer camp field trip.
