NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Metro-Nashville Public Schools administrator accused of sexual harassment resigned from his position Friday.

Moreno Carrasco was placed on administrative leave last month while the accusations were investigated.

A spokesperson told News 2 the district will proceed to conclude its internal investigation involving Carrasco.

In his resignation letter, Carrasco said, in part, “I left my job, my home, my friends and my family to come to Nashville to help a friend improve the conditions for learning as we had done in other places. However, I now find myself facing false allegations against my personal character and my professional code of ethics. When I first found out about theses allegations, I was shocked and hurt.”

Carrasco joined Metro Schools in the summer of 2016. He previously worked at Montgomery County Public Schools in Maryland.
