She’s caused a surge in attendance and in the pants of her male students. It’s early in the school year, but clearly she’s a frontrunner for Teacher of the Year.
A Dallas ISD teacher who had posed nude for Playboy’s website has caused a stir with students and at least one parent, who questioned whether she should be in the classroom.
Cristy Nicole Deweese — who was “Coed of the Month” in February 2011 — is a first-year teacher at Rosie M. Collins Sorrells School of Education and Social Services at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center. The magnet high school serves students in grades nine through 12.
Deweese is 21, teaches Spanish and goes by the name Cristy Nicole in Playboy’s online photos and videos.
The district is aware of the concerns, DISD spokesman Jon Dahlander said Friday. “This is a personnel matter, and it will not be discussed.”
One parent complains and it’s news. Great. But we bet Parent-Teacher nights will become a must attend event, especially for the fathers.
A parent, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear that her child might face retaliation, is upset Deweese had not been removed from the school by Friday afternoon. She said the situation has become a distraction.
She said students used their cellphones while on campus to view the video and photos, and one of the first online comments from a student was posted five days ago.
“Are her male 16- and 17-year-old students looking at her without picturing her nude?” the parent said. “And for the female students, is this someone they can respect as an educator, someone that they can look up to?”
You bet she is.
Several people, calling themselves Deweese’s students, have posted comments on YouTube videos where the teacher gives an interview and poses in lingerie for a photo shoot. “That’s my Spanish teacher!!!” read one comment.
Some kind of NSFW video here.
