In February of 2011, a college student known only as Cristy Nicole was awarded one of Playboy’s most above average honors when she was named “Coed of the Month” by the gentlemen’s publishing empire. It’s really no big deal, of course, because girls are named “Coed of the Month” all the time – every month, if you want to be a stickler – and for Cristy it was probably just a pretty great opportunity to advance her modeling career and/or leave the door open for future endeavors with Playboy.
Two years later, though, that silly, frivolous monthly honor is biting Cristy Nicole Deweese on her partially expose backside, as she’s currently a Dallas Independent School District teacher, and it didn’t take very long for parents to find out that one of the teachers at the local magnet high school can be seen naked with a simple Google search.
The district is aware of the concerns, DISD spokesman Jon Dahlander said Friday. “This is a personnel matter, and it will not be discussed.”
Deweese posed for Playboy before the school district hired her. It was unclear Friday whether that violates ethical standards for DISD or the Texas Education Agency.
Debbie Ratcliffe, a Texas Education Agency spokeswoman, called it “a murky situation.”
“It wasn’t an illegal activity, but it raises the question about whether that action violated the Educators’ Code of Ethics.”
Ratcliffe mentioned an ethics standard that states: “The educator shall be of good moral character and be worthy to instruct or supervise the youth of this state.” (Via the Dallas News Education Blog)
Of course, parents don’t care about any of that. They hear, “… posed for Playboy…” and it quickly turns into, “I don’t want my child being taught by someone who showed her boobies!” even though that someone has a college degree and is certified to teach high school Spanish in Texas. But in the parents’ defense, we’re talking about high school boys here, and I’m sure that it’s going to lead to plenty of comments like this one from the SFW YouTube video from Cristy’s 2011 Playboy shoot:
*stifles laughter* Grow up, Internet.
