Teachers Gone Wild
Two teachers, on different sides of the world have been fired for appearing in racy photos spreads.
Connecticut second-grade teacher Marie Jarry is out of a job after winning Howard Stern’s “Ugliest Guy, Hottest Wife” contest. The controversy erupted after Marie appeared in a bikini in some sexy shots on Howard Stern’s website. The school’s Superintendent, Joseph Erardi Jr. said she was given the boot because he was “upset that she missed work to appear on the show”. He told the Associated Press: "It's certainly my expectation that all staff, unless they're sick, are at work doing their assigned task," This is a similar excuse given to a Florida teacher who worked part time on a fishing boat as a “bikini mate”.
On the other side of the world, Australian elementary school teacher Lynne Tziolas received her pink slip after appearing nude with her husband in a woman’s magazine. Lynne says: "The first thing I knew was on Friday morning when a parent complained, and come Friday afternoon I was told not come back to the school". She received a letter from the school saying:
I refer to an article in the magazine Cleo in which your photograph appears accompanied by an article about your personal life. Concerns have been raised by community members in relation to this article. I have concerns that this will seriously impact on your continued employment at Narraweena Public School.
The nude photo accompanied an article about the couple’s sex life, what their favorite body part was and the most risqué sexual thing they’d done. According to Lynne’s husband, the most risqué thing they’ve done is do it "leaving the blinds up and the lights on, which is all the time."
Lynne says she has no regrets over the scandal and would do it all again, saying “We were honest. Yes, we're both teachers. Yes, we have sex, and yes, we are loving and committed to each other.” No word on whether the husband was fired as well. Lynne is planning on suing the school for reinstatement.
It makes you wonder - What’s going on with the world’s teachers?
