FITCHBURG, Mass. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A Massachusetts classroom aide who'd been placed on paid administrative leave after it was discovered she moonlighted as a bikini and lingerie model is back at work.

Fitchburg schools superintendent Andre Ravenelle said 23-year-old Kaitlin Pearson was notified Monday she could return to work and resumed her duties Tuesday helping special-needs students at an elementary school.

Ravenelle said in a statement that Pearson was reinstated after the school reviewed "all relevant information."

Pearson was suspended last week after someone anonymously sent a package of her racy photos to Ravenelle and the local newspaper.

The story ignited a debate on what was appropriate in teachers' private lives.

Pearson has not responded to messages for comment, but her father said his daughter loves her job and is happy to be back.
