Sorry, kid, blame mom for having your favorite teacher canned.

Gemma Laird, a 21-year-old year teaching assistant at Bloemfontein Primary school was fired out of nowhere after just a week on the job after some some parent with loads of time on their hands found pictures of her modeling lingerie. Gemma models for Lexi Fashions in her spare time, and apparently that will destroy the youth she teaches.
Gemma describes the encounter she had when she was called into the school’s headmistress’ office:
“She sat me down and said somebody had been on my Facebook page and discovered that I was doing modeling work. They had reported me for it,” Gemma recalls. “I was told that they didn’t want to damage the school’s reputation and that people would lose respect for the school if they found out I was a model. Another thing she said was that some of the pupils have low self esteem, and she didn’t want them to search for me on Facebook or Instagram.”
I think every student’s dad has lost respect for the school.
“She said she doesn’t want her year six pupils thinking it is acceptable to be a model. She made me feel dirty and like I was a prostitute. It’s ridiculous,” the now ex-teacher adds.
The headmistress countered with this: “It was brought to our attention that images which were not appropriate and which did not comply with our expected standards had been posted on social media by a newly appointed apprentice.”
Now, let’s all kick back and wish we were in school again by checking out photos of Gemma below:
