This is the stuff of telenovelas. A first-year Spanish teacher at a Dallas high school has a sordid past — she once modeled for Playboy.

Cristy Nicole Deweese, who teaches at Rosie M. Collins Sorrells School of Education and Social Services, once posed nude as “Coed of the Month” in February 2011, the Dallas Morning News reports.

While the school district is aware of Deweese’s past and is not commenting, some parents and other education officials have expressed concern. One parent said that students can look up the photos of Deweese on their cell phones at school, and a Texas Education Agency official questioned whether Deweese’s past is at odds with a state code of ethics that stipulates educators should be “of good moral character.”

Parents say students have seen the racy pics, but some students are supporting their teacher. “Half of the school already found out about that one Spanish teacher,” one wrote on Twitter. “She’s a teacher now, not a Playboy model anymore! Leave her alone guys.”

Way to stand up to slut-shaming, students of Dallas. Muy Bien!
