Aurora, Colo. (The Weekly Vice) - Carly McKinney, a 23-year-old math teacher at Overland High School, was placed on administrative leave Tuesday after she allegedly posted semi-nude photos, sexually suggestive comments and references to drug possession on her Twitter account.

McKinney has not been charged with a crime, however she was placed on leave by Cherry Creek School District administrators after she admitted to creating the account.

The account CarlyCrunkBear @crunk_bear has since been deleted, however many of the provocative texts and some images were salvaged by cache.

Here's one of the blurred pics...

The potentially NSFW pics are here...

Nothing really that bad... some hand bra...


Now... my question is this... obviously this girl isn't the brightest bulb in the box... but how much "freedom" should teachers have online with this kind of stuff?

Everybody knows that teachers are no different than other people... we all have our vices and they are no different. Should teachers be allowed to have twitter and Facebook accounts and post their opinions, pictures, and other stuff openly?

Obviously there is some issue (particularly with teachers of high school kids) and having said kids see these things... but how much is OK?

As stupid as it is posting semi-nude pics of yourself on the internet and making suggestive statements....I don't see it as a big deal.

The drug comments might be more of an issue because it's something that could be something seen by an impressionable kid as being ok to do.

Making comments/doing things against the law=yes...there's a problem

Taking pics of yourself wearing something skimpy and being "outgoing"= none of the district's business

She's not going to get in trouble unless they prove she broke the law. It's not a huge issue and she will be embarrassed by it.

But don't 23 year old educated women understand basic risk management. I understand when social media first started people didn't get it but now you should know.

I removed any reference to my current employer from my facebook account. And I generally avoid referencing my current employer here or any other message board, just in case. No point in making it easy for them to fire me. :)

The act itself bothers me less so than the fact that, given her position, she really should have known better.

That makes me think she's either not terribly bright or has poor judgment, neither of which is a good quality to have in a teacher.

i have tons of friends tweeting about and posting stupid poo publicly on their facebook walls all the time. like people in their mid 20s who should know better at this point.

i mean it's just common knowledge now that if you're in any form of contact with an employer for a job opportunity they'll be internet sherlock holmes-ing the hell out of you.

You don't have to break the law to get fired.

At least facebook you can make pretty private. Tweets are out there for anyone usually.

But...she's a chick....

But...she's hot....


I will say, it's unfair to an extent. What she does in her free time is her business, and that should include social networking. Having said that, she needs to up her security on her social networking, because she is a public figure, being a teacher. As far as calling a student jail bait, that just makes her an idiot.
