Things are heating up for a Treasure Coast fishing charter company and the teacher who works there. You probably remember Tiffany Shepherd. She says the St. Lucie County School District let her go because she was working on the fishing boats wearing just her bikini.
St. Lucie County 'bikini teacher' Tiffany Shepherd arrested in Okeechobee
Shepherd, a single mother with three boys, became a media sensation after claiming she was released from her teaching contract because of her job on a charter boat offering trips with bikini-clad and topless women. The St. Lucie County School District, however, cites Shepherd's "excessive absences," rather than the buxom and tattooed blonde's gig with Fort Pierce-based Smokin 'Em Charters. Shepherd, a former biology teacher, had more than 30 unexcused absences this school year and two reprimands in her personnel file. As news of the charters and Shepherd's bikini photos rocketed through the local media, the big-time inquiries started pouring in? Phil, Maxim, FHM.
