Right. She may be a great teacher, but poor decisions and behavior like this completely undermine her credibility.
Unlike professional athletes, she has a direct and personal influence on her students. As a public school teacher, her profession comes with certain expectations. She chose to ignore these, and should face the consequences like anyone else regardless of her age or sex appeal.

Do you think she absolutely cannot teach her students if she posts pics of herself online? A possible answer is yes, but it's not the only answer.

The biggest problem is public indifference. Unless the issue is advocated by a mob mentality (i,e, march on wall street), or supported by a celebrity/musician, it will be dismissed as "no big deal".
As stated: this lady should lose her job and have her certifications revoked.

Are "being a good math teacher" and "being provocative on twitter" necessarily mutually exclusive?

|JackHandey||Is anyone genuinely saying that this woman is really fit to be teaching our youth? The problem isn't teachers in general, the problem is apparently not properly vetting them|

without a doubt, she is going to reap any and every benefit this publicity grants her. which is sad, really.

According to OP's article, her friends had access to the account and posted pics as well. Which sucks for her, but she's kinda responsible for it being her name on the line. It's not like the account was set up completely anonymously and she didn't know about it.
Teachers (and others in public position) are forced to have an interesting relationship with social media. I find it best to remain abstinent (or close to it) and others agree with me. For some people, that kinda sucks. But it's something that you need to accept comes with the job. Sorta like if you're a superstar athlete, you can't go out to Disney World without people recognizing you and mobbing you (unless you rent out the park). But I know tons of teachers who are afraid of pics of them getting posted. Plenty of stories of colleagues who've asked friends to take down pics where they're in the background drinking a beer -- even though they're of legal drinking age. Simply the "better safe than sorry" bit.
