A St. Louis high school student is getting an "A" from authorities after discovering a teacher's X-rated past.

Tera Myers, 38, was put on administrative leave at Parkway North High School this week after a student inquired about pornographic films Myers starred in during the 1990s.

The science teacher decided to leave the school "out of respect for her privacy and that of her family," Paul Tandy, spokesman for the school district told the Daily News. "She was concerned about the impact it would have in the building."

Officials didn't know about Myers' past, which included a suspension five years ago from a Paducah, Ky., school for her role in the adult films.

While in Kentucky, Myers taught under a different name, Tericka Dye.

In 2006, the former porn star spoke to several media outlets and even made an appearance on "Dr. Phil," arguing she deserved to get her job back and that she had made the biggest mistake of her life.

"Anybody who has been in my classroom could tell you how much I love teaching and how much I love these students, and that should be what matters more than anything in my past," she said in May 2006.

Myers, whose stage name is Rikki Andersin, said she made the movies when she was living in California, working as an exotic dancer to earn desperately needed cash.

Because Myers' role in the adult films wasn't illegal, her pornographic past didn't show up during a background check.

The teacher, who has been at the school for four years, will be paid through the end of the school year but will not be returning in the fall.

"We're surprised, very surprised," said Tandy. "At the same time we feel for her and her family. We do believe she has tried to move on with her life... Unfortunately, even though it happened 15 years ago, [the video] is still there."

I've posted this before, but there is an inordinate % of good looking women in Paducah. Maybe she digs chicks.

So, let me get this straight:

Mike Vick, who brutally beat and killed canines for years on end now has an NFL contract for $16 million dollars.

But a woman that grew up with an alcoholic father, while suffering from a bi-polar disorder, appears in a few porn films 20 years ago, and AFTERWARDS, graduates #1 in her class at Murray State University, is now jobless?

This country is FUCKED UP.

I hope she sues that school district for Charlie Sheen money.

Unfortunately, bad decisions have consequences. For most women, deciding to work in porn is a bad decision.

She's probably a bright woman, I'm sure she can find work in something other than teaching. She probably could have made a better career decision there as well.

Actually, it sounds like decision making isn't Tera's best thing. But she's probably a nice person and I certainly wish her luck.

You're fucking dumb if you really believe this to be true. How old are you, BTW?

I can absolutely guarantee you that the Superintendent went to her with the following proposal:

"We have no choice here. Either we fire you, in which you'll need to file for COBRA and unemployment OR, you resign and in that case, we'll pay you your full salary with benefits until the end of the school year.

Either way, you're no longer welcome and no longer employed by our school system".

You're an absolute fool to believe otherwise.

When I'm 50, I'm sure that I'll want bi-polar porn stars teaching my kids. It's not the first time this has happened to her. She lost a previous job under the same circumstances. I guarantee that, at some point during her interview, she was asked why she left that job. It's pretty clear that she lied.

At this point in time, I wouldn't be surprised if 40% or more of college and high school aged kids have shared their naked bodies via the internet and phone and I'd bet at least 15% have video taped themselves having sex.

Is it a lie if you've completely changed your identity? Are you certain that they asked if she had previously been an adult performer?

If my identity has been changed by the FBI, yet it's later revealed that I was a killer for the mob, is that cause for firing if my employer finds out?

A school district is likely going to delve further when a teacher left a teaching job in the middle of the school year just a few years earlier. Either way, "personal reasons" isn't an acceptable answer. She was fired. That's not leaving for personal reasons.

Crystal Gunns - just a teacher's aide who worked in the cafeteria and playground, but still forced to resign from an elementary school in Jersey. Apparently was able to keep her job working with kids at the YMCA. Performed from 2004-2007 or so.

Tiffany Price - cheerleader coach at a high school in AZ. Led them to the state title. Was outed earlier this school year, so her longterm job status isn't known, but she was placed on administrative leave in October. Performed from 2006-2008.

First, I think it's crap that she was fired for doing something perfectly legal 20 years ago or whatever.

Second, the usual rule for at-will employment is that you can be fired FOR ANY REASON, OR NO REASON, AS LONG AS IT IS NOT A DISCRIMINATORY REASON. Sometimes people don't like to accept the consequences of this.

I'm ignoring any CBA or union stuff, or employee handbooks (which may create a contract) in relation to this, but again, the usual rule is that you can fired for ANYTHING. Show up one day with purple hair? Fired. Oops, you were a porn star? Too bad, fired. Breast augmentation and came back to work suddenly sporting double E's? Fired. Perfectly legal.

That doesn't mean people don't bring claims, and that there might be odd theories under various circumstances that apply, but again, the usual rule is ANY reason or NO reason, so long as it's not a discriminatory reason (race, religion, age, etc.).

But on a side note, what about this little sh!t kid that outed her? "Hey Mrs. Myers, you seem to be a good teacher and people tend to like you but F it I don't care if this costs you your job you have to pack up and run again practically ruining your life. Did you do porn?" ..... Man that was awesome.

Not if she lied in her interview, which she almost certainly did. In fact, I can't imagine an interview scenario in which they did not ask her why she left her last teaching job in the middle of the school year.

I don't really have a problem with her being a teacher, but I also don't have a problem with the district choosing whether or not they want someone with her background in an authority position over children. It's not like we don't hear about inappropriate sexual relationships between teachers and students on a regular basis.

I don't really care that it's not a crime. It's not a crime to be deeply in debt, either. That doesn't mean that employers can't disqualify applicants who have bad credit from working around large sums of cash. Maybe it's unfair, but it's life.

If I had interviewed her and she had been honest about her past, I would have probably offered her the job with the understanding that if this were to come out, and it compromised her ability to teach her students, she would be released.

For the same reason that people who are deeply in debt can't work in professions where they handle large sums of cash.

Those are ridiculously stupid points which have nothing to do with anything. So let's get back to what you were TRULY implying: that, somehow, because she starred in porn, she shouldn't be influencing children. Well, shit, if you're going to saddle up THAT moral high horse--who WATCHES porn? Most of the men in America (and, probably, on this board). I guess if men WATCH porn, they shouldn't be parents, right? Because they influence their children? And what was your point about the male pornstar... that, somehow, because he's a dude, he's gonna start raping the girls in the class or something? Stupidity compounding stupidity. She wasn't accused of propositioning a child. She didn't have sex with a student. She wasn't proudly walking around distributing videos and screaming, "I sucked cock for a living once!" She was simply trying to be a teacher and was apparently not doing a bad job at it.

But, as I said, your position on the moral high horse is clear, by your statement in the last post, "I don't really have a problem with her being a teacher, but I also don't have a problem with the district choosing whether or not they want someone with her background in an authority position over children. It's not like we don't hear about inappropriate sexual relationships between teachers and students on a regular basis." Your and idiot.

Jesus Christ. If you can't distinguish what people do in the privacy of their own homes versus what they do in public, I don't know what to tell you. According to your reasoning, she could still be stripping, making pornos, working as a prostitute in Nevada, and getting high in California during the summer months, and that would be just fine with you.

It's actually funny that you mention this even though I don't know whether or not you are being sarcastic.

An English teacher in middle school was rumored to have written some really smutty books earlier in her career. I asked her in front of the entire class one day if she had ever written books. She said that she had. I asked her if we could read them, and she said that they weren't appropriate for children. That was the end of it.

None of us ever tried to track down the books, it didn't undermine her authority as a teacher, and life went on. It really wasn't a big deal.

If a respected 30 year old professional athlete like Wes Welker can't keep himself from making foot jokes at a national press conference after it's revealed that Rex Ryan and his wife were in foot-fetish videos, it's reasonable to doubt the ability of a bunch of adolescents to focus on schoolwork after it's revealed that they are being taught by a porn star.

They probably wouldn't learn anything they didn't already suspect, but that's not really the point. Hers are on video, and that was a choice she made. I don't find it to be morally nor ethically wrong, but I do think that the district has a right to know that this bit of information prior to making their decision to hire her.

Let's say there was a teaching applicant who was exactly like her except it was a man. They interview him, and he tells them why he lost his previous job. He goes into all of the details (alcoholic father, needed money, bi-polar, etc.). The district takes everything into account and decides to hire him. Then, there is an incident with the teacher involving an accusation of sexual misconduct. (Maybe it's a true accusation, maybe it's completely false.) What do you think the reaction is going to be? How is the district going to defend themselves for knowingly hiring a bi-polar ex-pornstar?

I hadn't even considered the chance that someone would falsely accuse the teacher of sexual misconduct. I could easily see a high school kid lying to his friends about banging his teacher and having it blow up into a huge scandal completely by accident.

Maybe she could teach kindergartners and hope none of their older siblings clue them in.That's not the main reason, that's the only reason. And it's a valid one.

Any other reasons I've seen are a mixture of moralizing and proselytizing, folks trying to condemn her for her work in a legal profession. Hell, she may even condemn herself for it. She's tried to do something else, something that can help shape and mold people and perhaps even help them avoid mistakes that she made, but nobody can see past the 'omg, she fucked people on camera 20 years ago, give her the scarlet letter!' part of it.

You must not be overly filled with wonder, or you could just read the thread or use google. Missouri is an at will employment state, so they can fire her for no reason. Of course, she resigned, so it's moot. They offered her a deal to resign and be paid out for the rest of the year. Otherwise, they would have been able to fire her for cause, lying in her interview, and she wouldn't have received unemployment or compensation for the rest of the year.

If I took a job working for the Federal Reserve and had racked up a ton of gambling debt that I didn't disclose, I could be fired even though it's not illegal to gamble.

It illustrates that like it or not, there are consequences for actions you take, even those you took 20 years ago. I knew a guy once who did 8 years in prison for drug running across state lines. I met him 20 years after the fact. He was not that guy anymore, he paid his debt to society and has stayed out of trouble. By all indications, he's reformed. But, he still can't vote and he still can't legally own a firearm. Consequences of his actions from 20 plus years before. Right or wrong, it's the way it is. If anything this should serve as a good example to teach young people that the decisions they make now can impact them and haunt them for the rest of their lives. So...choose wisely, and be prepared to accept responsibility for your actions. It sucks, it's not "fair"...but it's reality.

I had a teacher in high school that explained "guilt by association". If you choose to present yourself as a thug or in my case a long haired stoner, that is how you will be perceived. Even if you don't act it out, you look like you do. It ain't fair, but it's reality.

I really hope you don't live by that rule?

Dude, get a grip. I'm saying it's not fair. But it IS the way of the world. People suck and make judgements about other people all the time based on some stereotypical ideal...just look at frazod...bible thumping morons...OK, whatever. People WILL hold shit against you for what you've done, even if you are past it and not that person anymore...it IS what it IS. It's not fair, but it's the way of the world.

So CHOOSE your actions carefully if you don't want people to look at you funny later.

you can be pissed about it, rail against it, but if you can't admit it's just the way it is, then you are not living in the real world.

It's been hard to overcome my past in pornographic films, but I'm not going to whine to Dr. Phil about it.

In a perfect world, it would be nice to give this lady the chance to continue in her chosen profession, but I don't see how you can avoid problems in the classroom once the pussy is out of the bag. It would be nice if some other district would give her a chance to come back incognito (kind of like giving Tom Cash another chance under a new username).

Her teaching a HS class would NOT work. There is no way that class would have been normal ever again. Imagine your class in high school knowing that your teacher was a pornstar. Shit would never get done.

This. It's not about morality, it's about practicality.

Please explain to me why being an adult film actor, in a perfectly legal profession while at a perfectly legal age, has any bearing on why you shouldn't be a teacher and why it should have "consequences".

Because as a school teacher it effectively ruins her or anyone's ability to properly run a class without distraction.

Exactly. Try explaining to your 14 year old son that it doesn't matter what she did in her past, she's a teacher now. Meanwhile, he and his friends are jerking off to videos of her which I'm sure are abundant on the web.

This is as teachable a moment about consequences of your actions as there ever was.
