Olivia Sprauer Forced to Resign as Teacher Over Bikini Photos

by at .

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.

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?
