Texas all-girls school teacher fired because she used to work in porn

NEW YORK POST --

A sixth-grade teacher at an all-girls school in Texas is out of a job and fighting for her position back after district officials learned she worked in porn more than a decade ago.

Resa Woodward, 38, was removed from the classroom at the Young Women’s STEAM Academy in Dallas in November, after district officials received an anonymous tip regarding her work as an adult film actress, although a subsequent internal review cleared her of policy violations, the Dallas Morning News reported.

“I taught in an all-girls STEAM Academy that was all about empowerment for women,” Woodward told the newspaper. “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?”

Woodward, who did not return messages seeking comment early Wednesday, 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.
