Hasta la vista, baby: High school Spanish teacher who posed for Playboy now sacked

The Daily Caller’s favorite Spanish teacher, Cristy Nicole Deweese, told Inside Edition late last week that she has been fired by the Dallas Independent School District.

Deweese, 21, posed nude for Playboy photos and videos when she was a college student. She was Playboy’s “Coed of the Month” in February 2011.

This year, she was a first-year Spanish teacher at Rosie M. Collins Sorrells School of Education and Social Services. Her presence generated quite a buzz among students ever since they discovered her collegiate exploits saved for posterity on YouTube.

On Thursday, the stunning brunette sent Inside Edition a three-word text: “They fired me!”

Deweese had apparently just turned 18 when she posed nude for the illustrious men’s magazine. She was not employed by the Dallas Independent School District at the time.

In Playboy’s online videos and photos, Deweese goes by the much sexier name, Cristy Nicole.

In a YouTube clip entitled “Coed Cristy Nicole is One Sexy Hunter,” Deweese can be seen modeling in striped pajamas and lingerie for Playboy. She spends much of the clip chatting with people behind the scenes.

She says hunting is one of her hobbies. She talks about her career goals—even then, at just 18, she knew she wanted to be a Spanish teacher.

Deweese spends much of the clip discussing a bag of beef jerky she brought to snack on during her Playboy modeling shoot.

At least one parent had suggested that Deweese’s presence in front of a classroom was a distraction for students. The parent also charged that students were checking out Deweese’s video and photos on campus.

Students seemed less concerned—at least the ones chirping on the web. Many of them posted comments under Deweese’s Playboy video on YouTube.

“That’s my Spanish teacher!!!” reads a representative YouTube comment.

Other students took to Twitter to defend Deweese and tell critics to stop bothering her. At least one student started a petition in an effort to save the embattled first-year teacher’s job.

The school district has been mum on the teacher’s future, calling it a personnel issue.
