President Barack Obama honored 2014 National Teacher of the Year Sean McComb during a White House ceremony on Thursday.
In his remarks about McComb, a Baltimore, Md. high school English teacher, Obama took the opportunity to praise every member of the teaching profession.
“To all the teachers who are out there, and the millions who are working hard in classrooms all across our nation, we want to thank you,” the president said. “You’re doing the Lord’s work.”
As we all know, however, the Lord works in mysterious ways. His work can sometimes seem to vex everyone—especially when it comes to these 11 teachers.
Cristy Nicole Deweese, a high school Spanish teacher in Dallas, Texas, was fired in October after students figured out she had once posed gloriously nude as Playboy’s “Coed of the Month.” “That’s my Spanish teacher!!!” reads a representative comment under a YouTube clip featuring DeWeese. In Playboy’s online videos and photos, Deweese goes by the much sexier name, Cristy Nicole. She had just turned 18 when she removed her clothes for the illustrious men’s magazine in February 2011.
