Hot For Teacher
I admit it. If my high school biology teacher looked anything like Tiffany Shepherd (pictured above), I'd probably have done better in biology. At the very least, I'd have been a lot less inclined to cut class.
30 year old Tiffany has been fired from her teaching position at Port St. Lucie High School in Palm Beach, Florida. She claims her firing is due to her part-time job working as a "mate" for Smokin' Em Charters. As a "mate", she wears a bikini and fetches drinks and sandwiches for men on board fishing charters.
Tiffany, a recently divorced mother of three, says that she can make $600 a weekend working as a "mate". She says this is a week's pay as a teacher.
The web site for Smokin' Em Charters says that the only job requirement to be a "mate" is to look "hot in a bikini". Looking at some other photos of Tiffany, it's clear that she's definitely qualified.
For it's part, the school district says that Tiffany wasn't fired for her work with the charter company. Rather, it says that she missed more than 30 days of school this year and had received two written reprimands for her absences. When she continued to miss time, school officials hired a substitute teacher to finish the year. District officials say that they didn't even know about her second job until after she received her notice of non-renewal.
Tiffany, who strikes me as being one of the greatest self-promoters since Barnum and Bailey, isn't buying the explanation of the school district.
Later today, we'll discuss whether the school district would be within it's rights if it did indeed sack her for her work on the charter boat?
