Should This Teacher Who Moonlighted As a Bikini Model Have Been Fired?

I have such mixed feelings about this issue. On the one hand, why can't this woman model bikinis on a fishing boat to make extra money on the weekends? (We know school teachers aren't exactly paid a handsome sum.) I mean, what is she supposed to wear, a fur coat? On the other hand, it bugs me that women are still used as sex objects to sell stuff. One thing I don't feel ambivalent about: that the news anchor of this story is a leering douchebag. Should this teacher who moonlighted as a bikini model have been fired?

Oh come on, so typical for America. It's her spare time ffs..is she a good teacher? yes? Well that's all that matters, as long as she's not a pedophile or drugdealer WHO CARES? Bikini model? Never took the kids to the beach? I see worse stuff on Mtv on a daily basis, and parents plant their kids in front of the tv every chance they get it seems. At least this woman also tries to teach them something, can't say that about Britney & Paris. And I've seen kids with worse pictures & profiles on myspace, maybe we should protect the teachers againt THEM. >.<

Sadly, airheads like Paris, Britney, and Lindsay doing dumb things make it bad for the gorgeous girls that are trying to make a living without hollywood. Its just like the mayor of that city getting fired because she had a photo of her showing off how fit she was in a bra on myspace. Seriously, I'm sure we can find worse things from the private lives of each of those council members. I bet also, they would probably have a different mentality if they were young and attractive (well, they probably did when they were in their 20's). Its sad that so many people equate beauty to being incompetent and unfit for any job of substance. But I definitely wish her the best of luck.

I agree with Hootie. However - if she did have that many absences, why was nothing said before? At my annual review, they always tell me how many absences I have compared to the county average. And how long ago did she start this job? If it has been this past year, then yes, it's excessive. Over two years, a little but not too bad. It's about the same as your average hypochondriac (I work with one). Something else - teachers get about 10 sick days and 3 personal days a year. Are they not supposed to take them? Or is 13 days a year excessive?

If she was fired for just being a bikini model, no. If what the school claims is true and she had excessive (30+) absences since starting the bikini job, than probably.

You can't do anything anymore with out people judging you. They need to pay teachers more for the valuable job they do and she wouldn't have to do that.

I wouldn't care if my daughters' teachers worked as bikini mates on a boat. The teacher isn't sleeping with anyone for money, she's just wearing a bathing suit.

Working two jobs is a fact a life for some. As longs as they (whatever the job is) doesn't affect your full time work, who cares!!!!

Yeah, a jacket would have been appropriate. The tattoo isn't helping her case any.

As long as she's not naked, who cares. I think she maybe should have covered up a little more in her interview though, she doesn't look, um, so professional there :P
