FITCHBURG, Mass. – A Massachusetts classroom aide who posed for racy modeling photos has been suspended with pay.
Photos of 23-year-old Kaitlin Pearson were sent anonymously Friday to the South Street Elementary School in Fitchburg, 45 miles northwest of Boston. Photos also were sent to the Sentinel & Enterprise newspaper with a note saying, "Can you believe that this girl was hired to work with special education children in the Fitchburg schools?!!"
Pearson has worked as a full-time assistant in a special-education program since November. She has appeared scantily clad in multiple amateur shoots, including for ModelsMania magazine.
Fitchburg schools superintendent Andre Ravenelle told the newspaper for a Wednesday story the school is investigating whether Pearson's second job affects her ability to work with children.
Pearson says in a Facebook message she can't comment because of legal issues.
