Carla McKinney, a Colorado Teacher, is Reprimanded for Posting Topless Photos on Twitter

Posted on the 01 February 2013 by Real Talk @talkrealdebate2012

Carla McKinneyCarla McKinney is a 23-year-old high school teacher in Aurora, Colorado.  She was recently reprimanded by school officials because she posted semi-nude photos on Twitter.  In addition, she also boasted of her love for smoking marijuana.

Some of her tweets include:

Watching a drug bust go down in the parking lot. It’s funny cuz I have weed in my car in the staff parking lot.
Naked. Wet. Stoned.

Instead of being productive, I’ve been on Twitter…

Just got called Ms. McCutie. Points for being clever, however you are still jailbait

The school district decided to place her on administrative leave until a decision is made on a potential termination.  McKinney maintains that her friend created the account as a parody.  She says she never brought pot to work.

This is why I think she should be fired.  The school district does train teachers on the use of the Internet and social media.  School officials say the basic mantra is: Don’t publish anything on the web that you wouldn’t write on the blackboard in your classroom.  It’s not like the pictures are of some other girl posted on a Twitter account with her name on it.  There are pictures of her topless and smoking what looks to be marijuana.  So I do not absolve her of responsibility.

As I have said so many times, be careful what you post on social media.  Nothing is private.  If you don’t believe me ask Melissa Cairns who posted a photo of her students duct-taped on her Facebook account.  Or Stacie Halas who thought her past porn career wouldn’t and couldn’t hurt her future endeavors.

What do you think?

Should she be fired?
