Mass. school class aide suspended over racy photos

FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) -- A Massachusetts classroom aide who posed for racy modeling photos has been suspended with pay.

Photos of 23-year-old Kaitlin Pearson were sent anonymously Friday to the South Street Elementary School in Fitchburg, 45 miles northwest of Boston. Photos also were sent to the Sentinel & Enterprise newspaper with a note saying, "Can you believe that this girl was hired to work with special education children in the Fitchburg schools?!!"

Pearson has worked as a full-time assistant in a special-education program since November. She has appeared scantily clad in multiple amateur shoots, including for ModelsMania magazine.

Fitchburg schools superintendent Andre Ravenelle told the newspaper for a Wednesday story the school is investigating whether Pearson's second job affects her ability to work with children.

Pearson says in a Facebook message she can't comment because of legal issues.
