School officials in Fitchburg, Mass. have placed a professional teacher’s aide on administrative leave after determining that she looks entirely too good in a skimpy bathing suit—or, in some cases, even less.
The teacher’s aide and part-time model, 23-year-old Kaitlin “Kaity” Pearson, worked in the special education department at South Street Elementary School prior to her suspension, reports the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.
On Friday, photos of Pearson showed up in the office of Andre Ravenelle, the Fitchburg public schools superintendent. The photos appear on her Facebook and Instagram pages, and on modeling websites such as ModelsMania
Pearson is, in fact, the reigning model of the year at ModelsMania.
Some craven coward sent the images to Ravenelle anonymously. On Monday, likely the same person anonymously sent the photos to the Sentinel & Enterprise, another local paper.
It’s not clear exactly which photos Ravenelle saw. Presumably, though, they are some of the more titillating ones—like the one with Pearson covering her nipples with her arm, or the one in which she is crouched nude in a yoga position with her butt tossed in the air.
According to a stern press release from Ravenelle, Pearson “was immediately placed on a paid leave of absence to assure student safety during the investigation and to mitigate potential disruption.”
The press release noted that Pearson hasn’t yet been found in violation of any district policies.
Opinion among locals concerning Pearson’s moonlighting proclivities appears split.
“You’re trying to be a role model for the kids,” one parent, Andy Saocedo, told CBS Boston.
Another unidentified parent countered: “She probably leaves work at work and her modeling career separate from her teaching career.”
CBS Boston also tracked down Pearson’s father, who supports his daughter.
“That’s her private life. She’s 23,” the encouraging dad said. “She’s a grown-up woman.”
At the modeling site Model Mayhem, Pearson posts several images and discusses her various attributes.
“I am Kaitlin!” she writes, describing herself as “energetic, creative, feisty” and “as reliable and responsible as a model could be.”
“I DO NOT SHOOT FULL NUDES!” Pearson adds. “I will only shoot implieds with a photographer I know and trust.”
She also lists her measurements. She’s 5′ 4″ and 110 pounds. She’s 32D-24-36.
Pearson is at least the third American teacher in the last year or so who has landed in hot water for scantily-clad — or just totally non-clad — modeling.
After former freshman English teacher Olivia Sprauer (a.k.a. Victoria V. James) got sacked for moonlighting as a sexy model, she decided to show her full array of junk in a 14-page photo spread in the March 2014 issue of Hustler magazine.

In the fall, 21-year-old Cristy Nicole Deweese, The Daily Caller’s favorite high school Spanish teacher ever, was fired because she had previously posed nude on Playboy’s website as a college student. (RELATED: Hasta la vista, baby: High school Spanish teacher who posed for Playboy now sacked)
