Olivia Sprauer Forced to Resign as Teacher Over Bikini Photos

by at . Comments

A Martin County High School English in Florida, Olivia Sprauer, says she lost her job because her bikini modeling side job got the principal's attention.

Olivia Sprauer Bikini Photo

She posed in clothing you might see on any beach in America, but this educator said her swimsuit pics got her banned from for good from her classroom.

Olivia Sprauer, 26, who models under the name Victoria James, said she decided to pose for bikini photos this winter even though she knew the risk.

"Lots of teachers get fired or asked to resign for the same things I did," Sprauer said.

"I knew I didn't want to come back next year and I knew I wanted to go to grad school so I decided if I made it to the end of the year I would be happy."

Unfortunately for Sprauer, she didn't quite make it. Last week, she was called into principal Alfred Fabrizio's office and pretty much told to hit the road.

Sprauer said the principal showed her one of her modeling photos and, after she confirmed the picture was of her, she was asked to resign that day.

"I felt like it would have been nice for my students to finish out the year," Sprauer said. "They trusted me and they made me happy so that aspect of it was sad."

The Martin County School District would only confirm that Olivia Sprauer, who taught freshmen and juniors, is no longer employed at the school.

Sprauer said she feels she did nothing wrong: "I don't make pornography. I don't open my legs on camera. I take swimsuit glamour style photography."

As for her students' reactions to the scandal that ended her tenure?

"They are happy for me," Sprauer said. "They know I love them."

The boys, we imagine, are particularly happy she did this.

Was the school right to force her out over this?


I think she should leave her day job and become somebody..


If you read what she said, she did it on purpose and wanted to leave to grad school. This was mainly for publicity.


Here is a report on Olivia/Victoria James and additional photos of her! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...


I know someone that photographed her. She planned this whole thing for the publicity. She wanted to amp up interest for a website where she poses nude. Just another chick willing to do anything for a buck.

I dont see why she would get fired. Its a bikini. They should have let her finish the school year. She said herself that she wasnt planning on coming back. So i dont see what the difference a couple of weeks or a month would have made.


To begin with, that Olivia Sprauer chick is a really pretty lady. And, as for that asshole principal Alfred Fabrizio, I wonder how many skeletons (or whatever) he has in his own fuckin' closet????? HYPOCRITICAL MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!


The principal is clearly a pervert looking at pictures of girls in bikinis there is nothing wrong with making extra money the right way !


So your telling me that is she goes to the beach she needs to where sweat pants and a hoodie? There is nothing wrong with this. Its everday beach attire. This is 2013 not 1950.


R u serious? Long as she didnt tell the kids or bring the pics its fine..shes beautiful...just haters hating

@ michelleSkutnick

She did tell kids. She posted pictures all over instagram and twitter and all of her students are following her


She taught in a county in Florida that has coast line. It isn't like the kids have never seen a woman in a bikini before and it may have even been her that they seen at the beach. She did absolutely nothing wrong, by modeling in a bikini, she is at least dressed unlike a lot of the teachers down here in Florida that get caught doing other things. If she can prove that is the reason, she should sue the school district for wrongful termination. Not exactly sure how well it would go, since the employers in the state of Florida can pretty much fire you for any reason, but she should try though.
