Erica Chevillar made national news last year when the West Boca Raton High School discovered that the 10th grade history teacher had an extracurricular activity - swimsuit modeling. They didn’t think the two career paths merged very well and took steps to have her removed from her job.
The school discovered that their first year teacher was one of 80 models featured on the website of the U.S. National Bikini team - a Boca Raton based company that sells calendars of models in provocative clothing. The rookie teacher was featured in two dozen photos ranging from wearing jackets that revealed some cleavage to some skimpy bikini poses. They were the same type of photos that you would find in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
The ‘bikini teacher‘, as she has become known on the Internet, has since traded her teaching credentials for a lucrative modeling career. She was featured in the March 2007 issue of Playboy magazine in a spread called “Hot for Teacher“. She was also a Maxim Hometown Hottie 2007 finalist.
