Mass. school aide in modeling flap back on the job

FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) -- A Massachusetts classroom aide who'd been placed on paid administrative leave after it was discovered she moonlighted as a bikini and lingerie model is back at work.

Fitchburg schools superintendent Andre Ravenelle said 23-year-old Kaitlin Pearson was notified Monday she could return to work and resumed her duties Tuesday helping special-needs students at an elementary school.

Ravenelle said in a statement that Pearson was reinstated after the school reviewed "all relevant information."

Pearson was suspended last week after someone anonymously sent a package of her racy photos to Ravenelle and the local newspaper.

The story ignited a debate on what was appropriate in teachers' private lives.

Pearson has not responded to messages for comment, but her father told WBZ-TV his daughter loves her job and is happy to be back.
