I think that is the point though. Being a teacher is all about image. As long as you have a solid grasp of the subject matter, can command respect in the classroom and no one knows that you sold Meth to make it through college... You can be a good teacher.
The instant that image is tarnished though, there goes the respect and most likely your job.
