Florida Teacher In Hot Water Over Swimsuit Photos

A high school teacher is trouble over photos found on the site of The U.S. National Bikini Team. From The
Sun-Sentinel:

A teacher at West Boca Raton High School is under investigation after school district officials learned about risque photos of her on a Web site.


Erica Chevillar, 25, is a first-year social studies teacher at the school. She is also one of about 80 models featured on the Web site of the USA National Bikini team, a Boca Raton-based company, according to the Web site. The site lists calendars for sale featuring scantily clad models dressed in bathing suits, provocative outfits or lingerie.

Chevillar, using the name Erica Lee, appears in outfits ranging from cleavage-baring jackets to skimpy bikinis in about two-dozen photos.

West Boca Raton High Principal Fran Giblin said he learned about the photos Wednesday after a parent complained. He turned the matter over to the district's professional standards department, which handles investigations of noncriminal matters.

"I would certainly hope that we set the highest standards for our students," Giblin said. "If this in fact is true, it's a concern. A big concern."

The district has only a general policy that requires teachers to behave "morally and ethically," school district spokesman Nat Harrington said.

"There's no policy that says what someone can or cannot wear or whether they can be photographed on the Internet," Harrington said. "We expect our employees to use good judgment and appropriate behavior in all they do. The question now is whether this is appropriate or inappropriate."

In the interest of furthering the debate over whether or not such activities are appropriate or not I've included the complete set of pictures from the U.S. National Bikini Team web site for Erica Lee.

Since their site is for the most part unreachable, I've made reposted the pictures below. They are swimsuit pictures - on the order of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition - so you may want to avoid them in a work environment. You've been warned...

Chevillar says she's going to quit teaching high school and start selling real estate. She's probably got a pretty big bill to pay to her plastic surgeon for those boobs...


Update: USC Professor Dr. Diana York Blaine was in the news earlier this week for topless photos posted online - in case you'd totally missed the fact that it's sweeps week for local newscasts. You'll probably want to scratch your eyes out; but if you must see you can check her Flickr site (NSFW).

goddessoftheclassroom:

She's a lovely girl with a terrific figure (admiration, not envy--well, maybe a little). If those photos were taken before she started teaching, she should hold her head up and stay put (as long as she love teaching--if not, she needs to get out regardless of the photos).

If they were taken after she started teaching, I think she has revealed a lack of judgement about the consequences of her actions. We teachers are role models, and, fair or not, we have to hold ourselves to higher standards. She did nothing immoral, just foolish, and that's sin enough for a teacher.

goddess, I tend to agree with you to a point, but I find it disturbing that while something like this is pursued so diligently, incompetent teachers are defended to the death by the various teachers' unions anytime a "merit-based" pay scale is mentioned.

Furthermore, many teachers provide a positively horrid example for their students in showing blatant favoritism and/or pseudo-nepotism on a daily basis. At least this young lady had the decency to remove as far as possible (by using a pseudonym, etc.) her personal actions and life from her classroom activity.

One wonders who made the "discovery" in this case, and how they can defend their actions in viewing while they demonize this teacher for her actions in providing their preferred viewing material...

Is the school district saying that they think they can legally forbid an employee from wearing a bathing suit when wearing it is not against the law?

If they say anything detrimental about her in print or in public, let alone attempt to take job action, I suspect she can sue and not have to sell real estate after all.

There was a very good reason I moved to Florida. It starts at the beaches. The public beaches, where everyone, including high school teachers, tends to wear bathing suits. Abbreviated bathing suits.

The principal subjects are covered in those photos. There's nothing indecent about them. I suspect that Ms. Lee's students--the male ones anyway--tend to pay rigorous attention in class.

And no, teachers did not look like that when I was in HS. Dammit.

I was under the impression that as long as a teacher's actions outside of school do not disrupt his or her classroom, then the school board, principal, and/or superintendent do not have the right to fire or punish the teacher.

Would any of her students have known about her modeling if somebody hadn't told them? She obviously kept it seperate from her teaching career, so what's the big deal?

I completely agree. The best way the NEA could improve conditions for teachers is to review vigorously their members and provide a forum for hearings regarding incompetence. It should develop a Professional Review Portfolio system in which its members provide copies of their lesson plan notes, including documentation of what state standards they cover. It should include copies of evaluations and a record of the students' score spread. It should also includes the teachers' students' standardized test scores for the subject, including ability index, attendance & discpline record, and demographics. It should include an annual survey completed by the students and their parents with objective yes/no responses. Together these items would reveal which teachers needed to "fix" something; if the teacher didn't improve the next year (with closer supervision), the teacher should be let go.

Good teachers have nothing to fear from evaluation, but student test scores are not enough; there is too much beyond the control of the teacher herself (or himself).

"Candy":

I realize it's a free country and all that - but as a teacher in a small town I'll say this: we are public servants, and we do have an obligation to "stay within the lines", so to speak. A lot of my students (high school dropouts returning to get their diplomas) don't have much at home to use as a point of reference - many of them are in the police log off and on, and many of their PARENTS and GRANDPARENTS have police records. If we, their teachers, can act as a surrogate parent/role model, it can really change a life.

I personally don't have a problem with what she did - it's MILD compared to much of what we see and hear these days. However, I can certainly see where the administration might feel the pressure to cave.

I never understand you women who can't come to grips with one simple little fact...
men love to look at beautiful women. What a crime, what a horror!

Secondly, these photos, aside from their obvious aesthetic value, have news value as well. No way you can form an opinion on this particular story without viewing the photos in questions and making your own determination.

So get your panties untwisted, take a deep breath.

Oh, and ladies, if your married - I have a little secret for you. Your husband looks at porn - they've just gotten good at hiding it from you.

Men are physical beings, women are emotional. Men love to look at a beautiful female figure as much as women love sappy love stories. Venus and Mars - these are facts of life you would do well to accept.

Finally - this is not your site. You don't own it or control it. If Kevin wants to display a photo of a naked woman, spread eagle, playing hide and seek with a cucumber - then that is his prerogative.

Any of you who claim to be real men would take this somewhere else.

Not picking on this particular commenter, as she was just one of the sheep who started following after another remarked a similar sentiment, but let's look at that statement, shall we?

"Real men" as used here is a pretty telling statement. What exactly defines a "real man?" Is it the one who's "in touch with his feminine side" or who "knows how to be sensitive?"

Get a freakin clue.

Real men are as rare as hen's teeth. Real men are the ones who still act like men, not like metrosexual pussies. Real men like things that are loud, fast, and big; they like women who are young and pretty. They're not the irresponsible dolts depicted on the sitcoms and in commercials, they're level headed, independent, and yes, they're aroused sexually by the better examples of the feminine form.

Get off your high horse for a minute and realize that trying to endow men with all these feminine traits has led to nothing but a dire shortage of true men...men who will defend their lady's honor to the death, men who will stand by their woman and support her in all her endeavours, men who will demonstrate to their sons how to stand for what they believe, how to treat others with respect, and how to garner respect for one's self. Men who will ultimately raise another generation of real men.

Real men make decisions, and stand by them. Real men recognize that what's right isn't always popular, and what's popular isn't always right.

The fact that you find such men so unsavory doesn't bode well for your own sons, ladies. Please rethink your position before you screw them up even worse than the current generation of males.

But let's go a step farther....have any ideas why child sexual assaults are all over the news now? Could it be that these men have been sexually repressed, made to feel like beasts (or worse) for having sexual feelings towards women their own age? Or does it stem from the fact that they've been completely prohibited from being in control of anything, and they finally find something (more precisely someone) they can control? I'd venture a guess that most sexual predators have been taught from childhood that natural male aggression is something to be ahamed of...something to repress. Think on that awhile. I truly believe that the feminization of men is directly responsible for the trend.

Now, the USANBT could not have paid to get even 1/100th the publicity this one incident has provided.

What I don't understand is this:

1. Erica "Lee" Chevillar clearly states she posed for these pics back in her college days prior to becoming a teacher. And, because it's been a while she'd forgotten that she'd actually done them.

2. Elsewhere she says these were shot back in January (but no mention of year).

3. A look at all of usanbt's site updates back in 2005 make no mention of Erica Lee. In fact, that site has no record of Erica Lee prior to February, 2006, and the pics themeselves clearly show they were posted in late-February 2006.

So, unless I'm mistaken, these pics were shot earlier this year mid-way through her 1st year as a teacher, contrary to everything she has said. Has anyone else noticed this apparent discrepancy? It's one thing to have done these shots back in the wild & crazy college days, but shooting them mid-way through a school year and hoping your students don't find out is something else, especially when the school is in the same city as the usanbt headquarters.

Jamie, et al, allow me to clarify what I THINK the previous commenters meant, since I'm a woman.

Nobody is saying men are pigs for having urges, or that anyone should be "repressed." You're reading WAY too much into that. And I certainly hope you aren't honestly blaming WOMEN for pedophilia. That's beyond f'd up. That's not about normal sexual urges AT ALL.

All I read in those comments is that the repeated posting of cheesecake here makes women feel as though they are not a valued audience at Wizbang, and I can certainly understand the sentiment.

Put it this way: I'd love to dress up my blog with pictures of sexy men, but I don't. Why? Because I have female AND male readers (in my case, probably more male than female). I think it would be kind of a big flashing (haha) sign saying "this blog is for chicks" if I were to post a bunch of beefcake. I respect my readers, so if I wanted to start posting that I'd create a separate, personal site.

At least that's my take. YMMV. I do think, though, that some of the responses (i.e. Cro's) were overly defensive and childish. And the comments saying "you didn't have to look" just prove my point about being dismissive toward female readers. Just my opinion.

Flame away, guys--my self-esteem is pretty bullet-proof. Insults like the ones Cro used are just giggle-worthy.

Robert:

I think people are making a big deal out of nothing. Besides, it seems that the people are making a bigger scene out of it than the teacher. Which also is causing students and people abroad to focus on her 'assets.' In the class room, does the Chevillar advertise what she is doing during her personal time outside of the school? In the class room, does she do her job well? Before these photos came up, how was Chevillar rated as teacher? Before this story made national news, how many people knew about the West Boca Teacher photos? How many people know about the photos now?

Did you notice that these pictures were taken in at least THREE different sessions? Look at her hair. It's THREE different lengths in the various photos.

Now, it looks like she has something to hide.

Bryan:

So it's "immoral" and "unethical" for this teacher to pose for the pictures, but whatever parent just happened to run across these photos while surfing the net isn't acting unethically? Since the photos are posted under a different name, whoever found the photos was obviously searching for bikini pictures or something similar, not the teacher herself. So, whoever ran across the photos has no moral issue with viewing the photos, but has a moral issue with a person who poses for the photos? How hypocritical is this?

Kedell:

Beth,

Even as a gay male, I find myself siding with many of the male commenters here (not about the woman's physical features, but about the seperation of personal life and work life). As for the pictures, I also find myself agreeing that though they are excessive on the idea of simply conveying the story, they did help me reach my final dicission about the female in question and her actions. Looking at them, I realised minus a few specific photots, most of these were shots that one could find either walking down a boardwalk or on a beach. This was why I drew my conclusion that the board was overreacting.

As for recent posts, well, I'll admit this is my first time visiting this site, and probably my only unless someone points to yet another article here that catches my interest. So I can't make claims as to the owners other posts. This one, at least, does not seem gratouatist to me though.

Not to mention keeping the attendance on track as well as keeping those lucky little bastards in school and not around your garage stealing, smoking weed, alcohol, and gay ass gang-banging. I say we clone her for the beauty and brains just to keep the attention of all our kids and let the little fuckers learn.

That is the government's way of saying this or that punk did those bad things because of some hot babe. That is the stupidest thing i've ever heard of. When it actuality, they do bad things because they are really sexually opressed due to their mothers, fathers, relatives, etc...(someone VERY close to them). We've all had crushes at one point with some sort of teacher but it's just not necessary to blame the superfly hot ass teacher that you moms only wish you had what she had. Thats the bottom line.

Lots of dads picked up their kids from school that year and most went to open house too.

I say more power to the girl. She wasn't illustrating the calendar to the students. So what, she's hot and she happens to teach too. It's usually ugly women that have the objection to this sort of stuff anyway.

Your high schoolers have seen much, much worse. If anything, this will get them to pay attention in class. Maybe their motives are a bit skewed, but hey, better than nothing, right? Believe me, with the way Florida's education system is, the kids could use a bit of a "perk"... no pun intended. ;)

bruce:

What a change. Every other news blurb is about childhood obesity. when a roel model (attractive and smart) has some press everyone reacts. I'd rather see the positive in this. good looks don't come cheap; cost is sweat or whatever you choose. I hope the stress of being a teacher and dealing with everyone's negative thoughts doesn't deter her from... living. as long as she can teach, i wouldn't mind what she did. keeping everything in line.

Like other readers, I ask why did my teachers look like Helen Thomas? No fair.

chris:

America is backwards!!!! Is this really an issue to be cared about or discussed? It really shouldn't matter what she did or is doing in her private life! at the top of this list "david" says he wouldn't want his kids taught by this woman. IDIOT! all the "NEWS" on this woman is that she is a great, respected, and kind teacher. So would you rather a boring half whit who couln't keep the kids attention if their life depended on it? Just as long as she not a bikini model!!!! jackass! It is people like david who are turning America into a crappy place to live. The land of NO individual freedom, pounding everyone based on some crazy ideals of morality, crying for reform and getting it in the form of less freedom. As long as she is not doing anything illegal or outrageous in the classroom, I'd like her cloned and put in every classroom. Maybe then our schools and education system wouldn't be such an international joke. Maybe kidswould actually pay attention to the teacher.

Minna:

What she choses to wear (or not wear) in any photographs is beside the point. Is she a competant teacher? As long as she is not showing or encouraging children to do the same, her private life is her business.

I myself am a model and I have photographs posted on the net of myself in lingerie, swimsuits and so on. Let's just say I don't plan on becoming a teacher anytime soon! :) The thing I want to know is, how did this guy find her pictures? Is he stalking her? Maybe he was looking up porn, and accidentally came across her.

Jon G.:

There are a lot of girls who are going through college and are also looking at other careers in the meantime. Obviously, Erica chose to be a great contributor to our educational system and she tried another avenue before and her modeling didn't take off. For her PREVIOUS decisions for doing a photo shoots for a viable modeling take off point for many such as the U.S. Bikini Team... I think it would be unfair of the school system to relieve her of her duty as a teacher-- her chosen profession.

At the same time, I do think if she did something in poor taste, such as being a stripper, a porn "artist", or posing in a nude magazine (such as Playboy or Hustler)... it would be in the interest of the faculty, students, and Erica herself to be let go.

Lastly, I think I speak for most guys... I would have LOVED to have someone like her as a teacher. Someone who could get my attention from the get go and who is smart and can teach... I would have probably gone the extra mile and my concentration would have been on every word coming out of her mouth and anything she could tell me.

Billy Bones:

Though it's true that past decisions do come back to haunt you, at times... there are more factors to look at then what people only want to see. It was never released when those photo were taken. Like someone said, if they were before her teaching, then let it pass. If they were during her teaching, look into it and figure out if her actions will comprise her teaching ability and the ability to be a good role model for the children. And yes, some of our children's first role models will be teachers. If she aims to help change their life for the better, through her teaching skills, that also should be taken into consideration.

What most people see are as follows: Teachers should be an instrument in children's education. They should be an outlet of knowledge that hopefully helps the child's development stages progress to a point where, when the child reaches adulthood, they have something to look back at and be proud for. The children are the future, so what they learn today, is futile to how the world progresses later down the road.

- David - she taught High School
- The pictures are something she has to deal with and I imagine it would be tough dealing with the high school boys that found her pictures. But she has nothing to be ashamed of.
Sad there are people ashamed of her, or are they ashamed of themselves?

Realinfo:

To clear up a few items that the newspaper don't tell... she was my sister-in-laws teacher last school year... from what I have been told a fellow male student found the pictures (on the internet) and started to show them to friends, etc... another students parents eventually found out and brought it all to the principale of the school. From what my mother & sister-in-law tell me she was an excellent teacher, being younger then most of the other teachers she related better to many of the students, so she will be missed by many students for reasons other than her looks. Additionally, the pictures were taken before she began teaching and at the time was something she no longer even did on the side. Due to media attention at the school and harassement in her personal life she quit teaching to persue other work avenues. Though I don't feel she should have quit I can understand the media attention and the harrasment would be enough for anyone to just walk away.

Wow... just wow.... ... (Below threshold)
Bri:

Wow... just wow....

She kind of had to quit. It would just be awkward going to teach a class knowing that 98% of the students in the school saw her online.
