Teacher tweets nude photos, calls students JAIL BAIT and talks about getting high

Carly McKinney, 23-year-old math teacher at Overland High School in Aurora, Colorado, has been suspended from her job after it was revealed she had been posting half-naked photos of herself on Twitter and joking about using drugs at school. She was placed on paid administrative leave Tuesday after admitting she created the Twitter account CarlyCrunkBear (@crunk_bear) with the help of a friend.

    McKinney joked on her Twitter account that she was grading papers while high and kept a stash of marijuana in her car on school property. One post read: 'Naked. Wet. Stoned,' while another said: '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.'

    McKinney says she and a friend created the page as a parody, and she never was in possession of drugs during the school day.

    In a bizarre twist, one of the most revealing photos allegedly depicting McKinney doing a handstand wearing only panties was retweeted by DJ Diplo to promote his newest single, Express Yourself, iDigital Times reported.

    Cherry Creek School District officials responded by saying that all employees are trained about social media use and are encouraged not to post anything online that they would not want to put on the classroom blackboard.

    Officials, however, added that teachers have first amendment right to free speech, especially in so far as personal social media sites are concerned

    Amole emphasized that the paid administrative leave is not a disciplinary action, but rather a routine measure.

    According to the district spokesperson, the main goal of the probe is to determine whether the 23-year-old educator used or was in possession of drugs on school property, which is illegal under state law.

    Amole went on to say that to the best of her knowledge, McKinney has not been named in any other complaints during her tenure at the school.
