A middle school teacher in North Sanpete, Utah, was given an ultimatum after the school district found out that her alias Instagram account featured pictures of her modeling for bodybuilding competitions.
Mother-of-four teacher at the center of controversy over body-building posts that parents have called ‘immodest’ and ‘pornographic’
MORONI, UTAH — Fitness fanatic Mindi Jensen, a teacher North Sanpete Middle School, in Moroni, Utah, was told this week she could lose her job if she didn’t remove, or make private her bodybuilding photos on social media.
Apparently, the parents of a student recently found images on Jensen’s Instagram page — @minscakes — to be “immodest” and “pornographic”, according to local ABC affiliate KTVX.
The school asked her to remove or make the photos private, and at first she did as requested but then decided not to because many people find her story inspirational.
Jensen was even willing to risk her job over her right to post the pictures.
The photos, while indeed sexy, aren’t exactly X-rated material. But that’s not all to Jensen’s story — she’s also a divorced, single mother of four and reportedly got in shape because she was suffering from depression.
Following a school board meeting Wednesday, Jensen was told she was at no risk of losing her job.
