Dallas ISD teacher under fire for posing for Playboy

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

A North Texas Spanish teacher is under fire after students and parents learned about her Playboy past.

Cristy Nicole Deweese posed for Playboy online after being named Coed of the Month in 2011, when she was 18-years-old.

A behind-the-scenes video shows Deweese eating beef jerky, as she tells the camera, "I want to be a high school Spanish teacher."

Now she is a teacher at Yvonne Ewell Townview Center, a Dallas ISD magnet school.

Many students agree it's a distraction, but parents and teenagers are divided about how the district should respond.

"She's a really good teacher," Zapora Long, a sophomore in Deweese's class, said. "She's really nice and really good at teaching Spanish and she never mentioned anything about it."

Students say Deweese was not at school Monday. FOX 4 tried to contact her at home, but she gave no comment.

"I think it would be more distracting for the boys," Esmeralda Landa-Soch, a parent, said. "They wouldn't see the teacher as a role model like she's supposed to be."

Deweese didn't break any laws by posing for Playboy online.

A Texas Education Agency spokesperson says this is a very grey area for the district. She says it's likely looking at its policies on Employee Standards of Conduct and reviewing the Code of Ethics for Educators to figure out what to do, if anything.

The spokesperson says first year teachers are usually on a probationary contract and the district could just decide not to rehire her.

    LL Cool J stays true to hip hop roots

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
