Sexy Teacher

A sixth-grade teacher at the Young Women's STEAM Academy in Dallas was fired after word of her prior profession as a porn star spread throughout her school district.

Resa Woodward, who performed under the not very sexy-sounding pseudonym "Robyn Foster" nearly 20 years ago, was fired last November after district officials received an anonymous tip about her work as an adult district. What's truly messed up is that although the Dallas Morning News reports that a subsequent internal review cleared her of policy violations, Woodward, who has worked in education for 15 years, is still out of a job.

“I taught in an all-girls STEAM Academy that was all about empowerment for women,” Woodward told the Dallas Morning News. “The sad thing is that if these girls find out that I’m being punished for something that I did nearly 20 years ago and had no control of and fought to get out of, well, what does that say about empowerment?”  

The New York Post reported on Woodward's predicament: 

Woodward told the paper that she was forced into pornography — saying “that involvement was not of my own choosing” — while living with an older man during a tough time financially. She eventually got herself out of the situation and finished school before becoming a teacher for the Dallas ISD, which serves roughly 160,000 students from pre-K through 12th grade.

But district officials got a tip in March claiming that Woodward worked in porn under the alias Robyn Foster, a name active in the business from 2001 and 2004, credited with 16 movies, according to a web-based adult film database cited by the Morning News.

The tipster, according to a report, was concerned because they didn’t want their child “exposed to things like this,” claiming Woodward was trying to deceive students and parents alike.

According to the internal report, Woodward claimed to have stopped working in the adult entertainment industry in 2001, and indicated that she suspected a spiteful man may have been behind the anonymous tip. 

Via The New York Post,

Woodward told the Dallas Morning News that she wrote a post on Facebook last fall about a drunken driver that angered another man who claimed to be associated with the Libertarian Party in another state due to his beliefs about police. That man then detailed her past on social media websites, Woodward said.  

Although the district's initial investigation found that Woodward 's "past participation" in pornography didn't warrant the termination of her employment, she told the paper that they decided to "pursue termination because it became public. 

She has reportedly filed an appeal with the Texas Education Agency, but an independent hearing was not granted because it filed improperly, a spokeswoman told the Dallas Morning News. 

Let's hope that isn't some sort of workaround to keep her from continuing her career as a teacher---dare to dream, people.
