Teacher Fired Over Racy Bikini Photo
A Florida teacher got the ax after a racy photo of her from a past modeling gig was dug up by the school’s principal.
Olivia Sprauer, a former English teacher at Martin County High School, was called in to principal Alfred Fabrizio’s office in April to ask if the sexy shot he found was of her. After confirming, she was asked to resign the next day.
The 26-year-old model — who works under the name Victoria James — doesn’t feel like she did anything wrong.
“I don’t make pornography. I don’t open my legs on camera. I take swimsuit glamour style photography,” Sprauer told the Huffington Post
She also adds that she wouldn’t pose nude though her modeling page reads “I am more than comfortable shooting TASTEFUL nudes for the right projects.”
Sprauer wished she had closed out the years with her students because they respected her. “Lots of teachers get fired or asked to resign for the same things I did,” she also said. “I knew I didn’t want to come back next year and I knew I wanted to go to grad school so I decided if I made it to the end of the year I would be happy.”
While Martin County High School would only confirm that she was no longer employed, Sprauer says that she will still attend her students’ graduation.
