Raunchy Math Teacher Shows Her Students What Not to Do on Twitter

Eye Roll 72


Carly McKinney
So moms (and a handful of dads), did you hear about Carly McKinney? Ms. McKinney to some of her students at Overland High School in Aurora, Colorado, “Ms. McCutie” to the cleverly flirtatious guys there? Don’t know her by face? Maybe you’ll recognize her by her booty. It is Twitter famous, after all.

The 23-year-old math teacher is on paid administrative leave after she posted pics of herself twerking—which is basically acrobatic rump shaking if you’re not familiar—on social media. Now that would be tacky for any woman because, you know, we’ve all heard the warnings about sexting naked pics and posting salacious body shots online, lest they end up who-knows-where. Worst case scenario in the hands of some grimy perv, a vindictive blackmailer… or your boss.


Which brings me back to Carly McKinney. Some more of her work:
Not to mention her openly bragging about being high and getting crunk.

Once upon a time, maybe a generation or so ago, students made great sport of creating elaborate stories about their teachers’ personal lives. Rumors were born in snippets of juicy gossip whispered across the aisles and aside from maybe a random siting of a spouse or the manufactured romance between two single folks spotted coming out of the teachers’ lounge together, no one really knew what was going on with them.

Then Twitter was born and now topless math teachers are doing stripper dances in their panties. I imagine it’s kinda hard to focus on algebraic equations when you know what the instructor looks like half-naked. (Thank God I got out of high school before the social media craze. Mr. Trimmer shirtless? No. thanks. I was having a hard enough time passing calculus as it was.)

McKinney’s original Twitter page, @Crunk_Bear, has been taken down and a dummy page is in its place which, according to one tweet, picked up 4,000 followers in a day. But more than 18,000 followers total is a testament to the power of the emerging #FreeCrunkBear movement that’s building in her honor. And what a pitiful movement that is. Then again, it is being led by teenagers who see nothing wrong with what she did. They relate to her on a personal level, one student said. Understandable, since that’s something that a 16 or 17-year-old would probably do.

Look, it takes a certain level of maturity to be a teacher, because you are in a fact an authority figure and maybe even a role model. And if you’re behaving on the same level as the kids you’re charged with educating and it becomes hard to tell the students from the teachers, then maybe being an educator just ain’t your thing. Maybe she has a little growing up to do first.

Is a teacher’s behavior in their downtime any of our business?

No, a teacher's behavior in their downtime isn't our business....that is until they decide to make it public. This gal ought to be ashamed; what did she think would happen when she put this on Twitter? And with "crunk" in her user name it really speaks to her level of immaturity. But then again, she is awfully young, and part if the generation that is entitled to do whatever, whenever and don't understand consequences.

Exactly, manders! I don't care what my kid's teacher does in her personal life but once it's posted online, it's no longer private or personal. I don't understand why people can't seem to get through their head that if something is personal or private, it should stay OFF the internet!

Oh to be that young with that kind of body again. *sigh* Seriously though, people need to.understand, especially the college kids, that whatever they Facebook, Tweet, Instagram, Tumblr, etc is going to follow them around for a long long time. And potential employers do look at that stuff. Have all the fun you want, just keep it off the web.

Nope, not our business until she "made it our business" by linking the her work and personal life together. IE soliciting her a** to the students. She crossed the line. Anyone who takes a public job/ office is fully aware that their personal activities can be held against them. It is frankly immoral that she would pander her sexual and drug related behavior to minors. Minors that were entrusted to her by the public to teach. I support her firing and would support the permanent loss of her teaching credentials as well. Since she enjoys the attentions of underage boys, then she should be considered a risk. If she wants to continue teaching she should move on to teach at the college level. At least there her access to minors will be limited.

I agree Manders. This girl obviously isn't ready to grow up. She needs to not teach until she knows what she wants.

I agree with the blogger and all others who commented. They took the words right outta my mouth.

No, I do *not* think she should have been punished for this, regardless of her maturity level. Her private life and what she chooses to do with herself are her business and certainly not her employers! That it is now perfectly fine for employers to use facebook, twitter and other 'net broadcasts to punish or reward employees as they see fit for actions taken outside of the workplace is completely asinine and Big Brother-eske.


She was not soliciting her students, telling them to search her out or doing anything illegal other than the crunk- which yes, she should be punished for that by the police, NOT her employer. Besides, it's just a body; our culture is so sex-negative that whenever a woman dares to do as she pleases with her body it seems like she's attacked. Punishing her is like telling those kids they should be ashamed of their bodies, which is horrible and far more depraved.


Besides, it wasn't like she was sacrificing animals, painting herself with their blood and posting pictures of that!

@KTH, her twitter feed idiocy had to do more with just her body. I saw it, it displayed very poor judgement on several levels. However, she also put the twitter name of the school where she taught on her profile. If she wanted to be stupidly anonymous, as far too many immature people do, she should have tried to retain some anonymity. She isn't anyone I would want teaching at any school, period.
