The Rev. Jack Hanna, a Spanish and art history teacher at Houston’s Catholic St. Thomas High School, has tendered his resignation and entered treatment at a therapeutic center for priests, school officials said Friday.

In a statement issued by the Rev. Kevin Storey, school president, and the Rev. Patrick Fulton, principal, the school said Hanna had been accused of unspecified misconduct. The nature of the allegation was not made public.

Hanna, a 1962 graduate of the school, operated by the Congregation of St. Basil, taught introductory and advanced placement Spanish classes and art history. He had been a member of the faculty since 1981.

“He has acknowledged that he behaved inappropriately…and has expressed deep regret for any harm caused by his behavior,” the letter to school alumni said.
