Carly McKinney, aka CarlyCrunkBear: Overland teacher outed for hot Twitter photos, pot jokes

Categories: Education, Tech

Big photos below.
Carly McKinney, 23, is a first-year math teacher at Overland High Schools, but her calculations related to a now-yanked Twitter account posted under the name CarlyCrunkBear don't add up. She reportedly considered it a parody account, but administrators at the Cherry Creek School District don't appear to find the flirty photos and drug references terribly amusing.

This is a look at McKinney's official staff photo, from the Overland website:

In contrast, here's her profile pic from her Twitter address, @crunk_bear; a quick-fingered Reddit user grabbed the shot before it vanished. Feel free to speculate about what she's smoking.

Why'd @crunk_bear go away? Because a 9News reporter got a tip about the account and discovered several images likely to raise the temperatures of McKinney's young charges. Like, for instance, this one...

...and this one....

Also said to have been featured were a handful of tweets making drug references, like "Naked. Wet. Stoned" and "Watching a drug bust go down in the parking lot. It's funny cuz I have weed in my car in the staff parking lot."

Here's another one, as seen in another user's tweet:

When the reporter contacted McKinney, she said she and another person launched the account a few days earlier and denied putting up the more dubious photos. She also denied any on-campus drug use. Then, shortly after sending out this message...

...@crunk_bear was no more. It still lingers, though, in Twitter references that popped up after the 9News story aired. Continue reading for examples.

Wouldn't want her teaching my kids. (If I had any.) Mainly because I would want someone to be an actual role model and challenge them to being successful and unique... not show them how to post awkward pics in front of your bathroom mirror with your tits falling out and facial expression that would suggest critical thinking as a foreign language to you. We have enough whores in our society, we need more classy, intellectual ladies... and let it be known, I have NOTHING against whores.

No. What she does outside of school is her own biz, but she made it EVERYBODY'S business!!! Irresponsible, immature, & unprofessional.

When you're off the clock your employer shouldn't be allowed any say. I've just learned of a reality TV series there that glorifies convicted criminals who escaped but subsequently got caught. That is OK to produce but this person gets crucified for this?! Does everyone fail to see how screwed up that is?

No, not a great role model and probably not smart enough to be a teacher.

I wouldn't want her teaching my proverbial kids. It's not that I have a problem with pot and nude pics, but just because of the simple fact that she seems to lack all forms of common sense.

I'm glad you support her, Victor. So do I. That's the one thing we barely have in common. Beyond that, you're welcome to stay out of Boulder County.

is that what passes for hot nowadays? Gross. Also, I'm pretty glad she's not teaching kids anymore, she looks like she has no taste and is likely not very savvy about how the world works.

It was her busness until she posted it on social media. Then she made it all her friends' business and their friends, and all their friends...making it public. Funny that no one really seems to understand where and who your posts go and who they have the possibility to reach. Want to keep your business private? Keep your silly, young butts off social media...very simple but obviously not easily understood

I don't sympathize with her. It's a tough job market for teachers, she's lucky she got hired so young- straight out of college it sounds like- and she obviously did not take her role as an educator seriously. There are plenty of people who would be more than willing to step up, and be a professional teacher. None of the kids supporting her actually stated that they learned anything from her, the all just liked her because she was the "cool teacher." Sorry, but that's not doing anybody any good.

Not at all. Some professions are held to a higher standard, and being a teacher is one of them. The danger of social media is that your private life becomes public. I know plenty of teachers that post things, but they still keep it classy. This one didn't and she suffered the consequences.

Hey Mikey ... why aren't these stories Keyword Tagged with "marijuana" ?

She's doing her own developing & analyzing on teenage boy's hormones and we have ALL interrupted  her research .

I hate talking shit about educators. They are such a detrimental part to our society and life in general . Parents TRUST these strangers to continue where Mommy & Daddy left off  and hold them to the highest of standards . 

Meanwhile, the Ass. Mgr Burger King is pulling in ten more grand per year .

I'd like to practice some long division with her.

so the news story is: this young teacher posted some stuff on twitter, perhaps inappropriate... or is the news here that a TV news station is taking these posts and then giving them an audience they never would have had? Kinda like uncle jim showing little timmy the nude pics he found  of mom and dad. Lame.

Ahh.. this was just waiting to happen. As my professor once pointed out to me (in a conversation about twitter, actually): "It doesn't matter what YOU think about social media and its use. All of your bosses will always be my age."

How well can she teach math? Being a good math teacher trumps a lot of things.

I absolutely love Ms. McKinney, she never did any of this when I had her as a student teacher. She made a bad mistake that she is paying for. NO ONE has any business in calling her all these names. It doesn't make it right, but we do need to remember what she did was a mistake and everyone makes mistakes.

Alec, the answer depends upon whether the viewer is a mature adult male or an immature wanna-be man.

I have a question. When a woman posts sexy/racy pictures of herself on line, what is the message she is sending? Is it "hey world, I am a beautiful, sensual, eroctic woman who is in touch with and proud of her sexuality" or is it "hey world, I am a slut"...

can we say hot teacher of the year award or at least Ms. High Times Colorado?

Steve, in my opinion there are certain jobs that carry certain responsibilities on how you conduct your personal life. It doesnt have anything to do with being a prude about sex. She has put herself in a position where her effectiveness as a teacher is now compromised. The students in her classroom (especially the boys, remember we are talking teenage boys here) will only be thinking of her in one way and it wont be as an educator. Do you really think that as a teacher in high school, what she did was a smart thing to do? She can do whatever she wants to in her private life but why do people in this day and age now feel they must let the whole world know?

I am sorry that Americans are so prude when it comes to sex but violence comes easy. And I'm sorry that in the land of the free one must be afraid of one's life outside of work...everything for the job right.

Perhaps she's overcompensating for being nominated as chairwoman of the itty bitty titty committee ...

@instntkrma No, you had it right the first time.  The skank is the one who posted the pics of herself to her account.  She posted messages to her students.  She knew they were aware of her account.  She knew what she was doing.. 

The news station picked up the story.  They didn't create it.

And BTW, the very purpose of a news story is to give news to an audience that they do not have.  It looks like they did their job, but the teacher utterly failed at hers.

@jesserzz1234  No, she wasn't posting inappropriate remarks directly to students or posting stupid pictures way way back in the old days of last year.  If she had, she would have been in trouble last year.  But she did it this year, and she liked to post to students and she posted lots of pictures for you little guys to see.  And that's why she is in trouble. 

Don't worry.  We will remember that she made a mistake.  That's why we want her fired.

@jesserzz1234 Still, she even admitted to having weed in her car on school property.  That's not exactly a "my bad" mistake.  That's a "hee hee I have drugs at school" mistake.  So add that mistake to her other mistakes, and you have a whole lot of mistakes.

@Alec Revelle  ... what's the difference?

BigSteve

@Steven Fowler I don't know.  I think most of us are against her whoring with the students or beating them up.

I think you don't understand Americans because we generally have our own bedrooms; so we don't have memories of mummy's special friends climbing on top of her.

Oh, and your women should shave their armpits.

@BigSteve @instntkrma this isn't a news story, or it shouldn't have been.  Welcome to the digital age, the age of social networking. The teacher is a 23 year old girl, acting like a 23 year old girl. I've not heard complaints about her teaching or job performance.
