High School Counselor Fired For Her Past Modeling Career

KHQ.COM: Tiffani Webb, a 37-year-old counselor at Murray Bergtraum High School for Business Careers in New York City, was fired last December, just before earning tenure, when photos of her previous lingerie-modeling career surfaced on the web (photos that had been taken 17 years prior).

Webb who had been working at the school for 12 years and who also disclosed her previous career when she was hired, is now suing the city Department of Education to get her job back.

The New York Post quoted a chancellor's committee ruling as stating, "The inappropriate photos were accessible to impressionable adolescents. That behavior has a potentially adverse influence on her ability to counsel students and be regarded as a role model."

Webb however disagrees pointing out that she is highly regarded by parents and students and has a positive track record. She is fighting to get her position back claiming wrongful termination and sex discrimination.

Do you think Webb was wrongfully terminated?

Should she be punished for her past?

In a world where racy photos run rampant on the Internet, do teachers and those in authority need to be held to a higher standard?

    Coffee is life: Washington woman's hands-free drinking tip goes viral

    VANCOUVER, Wash. - With Washington's new distracted driving law in effect, holding a phone while behind the wheel could cost you. In addition to the cell phone crackdown, the law makes eating, drinking or other activities that could potentially take your hands off the wheel secondary offenses. That means if you run a stop sign while drinking a cup of coffee and get pulled over for running the stop sign, you could get a $99 fine for drinking that coffee.
