The father of a 23-year-old teacher’s aide in Fitchburg says he fears someone is trying to sabotage her career.

Kaitlin Pearson has been placed on paid administrative leave after the school system received an envelope containing revealing modeling photos. A second copy went to the local newspaper.

“That’s her private life. She’s 23. She’s a grown woman,” father Chuck Pearson told WBZ-TV.

Pearson works with special needs children, and moonlights as a model. Fitchburg schools put Pearson on leave while they investigate to “assure student safety,” according to a statement. “Paid administrative leave status does not constitute a finding of any wrongdoing.”

“You’re trying to be a role model for the kids,” said parent Andy Saocedo.

What do you think? Should racy modeling photos affect her career? Or are the two jobs completely separate? Share your comments below, and watch for them on WBZ News in the Morning from 4:30 – 7:00am.
