Hot for teacher! Do you ever think that certain photos you take/took could come back to haunt and you, and possibly jeopardize your career? That’s exactly what happened to a Manhattan school guidance counselor. The NYPost reported yesterday that Tiffany Webb, who worked at the Murry Bergtraum High School for Business Careers, was fired after twelve years from the Department of Education (DOE). Photos of Webb (at the ages of 18-20) surfaced on the internet, specifically on “sleazy” sites such as Mo Girls Entertainment and Showgirlz Exclusive, where Webb is found scantily clad wearing lingerie. Webb claims that the pictures were even photoshopped, and that she quit being a model way before she started her career in education.

This isn’t the first time Webb’s photos have caused her trouble. The DOE has brought up her photos to council three times, even though Webb disclosed information about her modeling past from the get-go. Since being let go from her job last December for “conduct unbecoming” Webb had this to say to the NYPost about her role as a counselor regardless of her past, “I am a dedicated professional and enjoyed being a guidance counselor. I did my job well, and my students and parents thought very highly of me. I would love to return to the DOE and resume the career I have chosen to help and guide students.”

Webb is now teaching in New Jersey and has changed her name, but is suing the DOE for charging her with wrongful termination, sex discrimination and violation of her First Amendment rights. What do you lovely readers think of this? Being fired regardless of one’s current performance for something as simple as modeling photos? This story reminded us a lot of Debrahlee Lorenzana who was fired from her job at Citibank for being “too hot” that BeautyStat covered a few years back.
