Erica Chevillar says she found it tough to make ends meet living in South Florida on a $33,000 first year teacher’s salary, so she quietly posed in skimpy swimwear to earn extra money.
Little did she know that students from West Boca Raton High School, where she teaches 10th grade world history, would soon discover the photos of a familiar model named “Erica Lee” on the USA National Bikini Team Web site.
Students started e-mailing the photos to friends, posting them on Web sites and bringing them to school on CDs. Suddenly, the 25-year-old teacher became the talk of the school and the subject of a brief disciplinary review. After a one-day investigation, the district’s professional standards department determined Thursday she broke no school district policy and would face no discipline.
I think of all the education that I missed. But then my homework was never quite like this. Got it bad, got it bad, got it bad, I’m hot for teacher. Between the Pamela Rogers Turner Cellphone Video and this Erica Chevillar bikini baby is it me, or has school gotten sexy?
