Bremerman is a teacher at Roberto Clemente Middle School in Germantown, and previously worked at Goshen Elementary School in Gaithersburg from 2017 until 2020, the Bethesda Beat reported.
Goshen Elementary School Principal Stephanie Dinga reportedly said in a letter that Bremerman had worked at Bar-T and KidsCo, which offers before and after school programs and summer camps for children.
Police said they began their investigation into Bremerman after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) received a tip from an phone messaging app that a user of that app was possibly uploading child pornography.
No students at the middle school Bremerman taught at were involved in his suspected offenses, according to police.
A Montgomery County Public Schools spokesperson said Bremerman was placed on administrative leave, according to the Bethesda Beat.
Roberto Clemente Middle School Principal Jeffrey Brown said in a letter that the school system is “fully cooperating with law enforcement,” the Bethesda Beat reported.
“These charges are deeply troubling and are a violation of the core values of our school and school system. This behavior does not reflect the principles of MCPS or our community and it will not be tolerated,” Brown wrote.
