It never goes well when it's discovered that a teacher has done anything even remotely related to s-e-x. After all, they shut down and sleep in the classroom closets when school isn't in session, right? One Dallas teacher who is also a former Playboy model is getting some heat for her tawdry past.
During her "Coed of the Month" photoshoot back in February 2011, Cristy Nicole Deweese openly admitted to her Playboy interviewers that she was going to be a Spanish teacher some day.
That some day came two years later when Deweese, now 21, was hired to teach Spanish at the Rosie M. Collins Sorrells School of Education and Social Services at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center in Dallas. But her substantial past as a nude model and sometimes lesbian sex scene simulator soon caught up with her, prompting suggestions that her past behavior was unbecoming of a school teacher.
"It wasn’t an illegal activity, but it raises the question about whether that action violated the Educators’ Code of Ethics," said Texas Education Agency spokeswoman Debbie Ratcliffe.
Though neither the school district nor the school have issued official statements on the matter, some parents have come forward to express concern that Deweese's students would now be unable to look at her "without picturing her nude."
Some of her students aren’t happy about what Ms. Dewesse (eh… Señorita Deweese?) is going through. They want her to be able to teach without any hassle over her past career choices.
As for me, I agree with what several Gawker commenters said. She’s a young, hot woman teaching teenagers. They were already picturing her naked before the whole Playboy thing came to light. Besides, it’s not like the angry parents or administrators are all virgins, right?
What I Do, Job-wise: So. Much. Other than playing on-air every day (and on DO YOU HATE IT? Sunday nights), you might get an e-mail response from me if you write in asking to know the name of a song or whether we're looking for interns. I'm all over the place, like a ninja, but less stealthy.
