BERLIN TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- A former "Teacher of the Year" in a New Jersey school district was fired after being arrested for allegedly streaking through an apartment complex. Mark C. Bringhurst, a tenured fifth grade teacher in Vineland, N.J., was the first educator to lose his job under the state's speedier new tenure law, championed by Gov. Chris Christie.
Bringhurst, 41, of Berlin Township, N.J., was so respected that his colleagues had named him "Teacher of the Year" for 2011-12, but the former member of a Philadelphia comedy improv troupe (pictured above) apparently had a playful side. One warm March evening, he ran naked through a busy apartment complex on a dare, according to the arbitrator's ruling. It took four months from the time the Vineland Board of Education voted to dismiss Bringhurst for the incident until an arbitrator made his decision last week.
