Kaitin Pearson, 23, has been placed on administrative leave for her role as a teacher’s aide in Massachusetts after racy photos of her were found online. The young blonde posted the pictures herself, on her Instagram page, as recently as two days ago.
While she may be a teacher’s aide, it is evident Pearson’s dream job is actually modeling, as many of her photos are done at photoshoots and feature her in barely-there outfits. She also has a profile on Model Mayhem, a site that helps models find work.
"I am energetic, creative, feisty, passionate about modeling, and I bring my love of life to every shoot!" writes Pearson on Model Mayhem. "I have a background in graphics and business, and as such I am as reliable and responsible as a model could be. I'm balancing modeling with a full-time job, so my time is very precious. I am here to expand my modeling horizons and am interested in serious opportunities."
Pearson, who has more than 3,000 followers on the popular social media site, has worked since November in a special education program at the South Street Elementary School in Fitchburg. Mass. She was suspended without pay on Friday after the district received an anonymous packet containing her modeling photos.
Superintendent of Schools André Ravenelle said about the case, "The only comment I would make is, we would be committed to take action on anything that we're knowledgeable of that would pose any concern of someone working with students. We will be working with our counsel, and we will be working with the union for the investigation.”
Pearson's suspension has sparked widespread debate on whether this “second job” as an aspiring model compromises her role as a teacher who works with young children.
