Porn Star Teacher Loses Appeal, Won’t Get Job Back

It may sound like something from a raunchy teen movie–the one where a group of horny boys discovers their teacher is a stripper/porn star on the side–but a California woman knows just how real the story is, and she recently lost an appeal in court because of her past.

Stacie Halas says she never participated in porn while she was teaching at her Oxnard middle school, but only took jobs during certain times of the year after relationship issues left her with money problems. However, in an age when everyone over ten years old has a smartphone and porn is increasingly easy to access, the videos surfaced while she was employed with the school. When administrators found out, she was promptly fired. They feel her past will impede her ability to affectively teach her students now that word is out.

The Commission on Professional Competence thought so, too, and denied her request to get her job back.

“Although her pornography career has concluded, the ongoing availability of her pornographic materials on the Internet will continue to impede her from being an effective teacher and respected colleague,” Judge Julie Cabos-Owen said.

Administrators say part of the conflict stems from the fact that at the beginning of one of the videos, Halas mentions the fact that she’s a teacher. Jeff Chancer, the school’s superintendent, said Halas’ decision to “engage in pornography was incompatible with her responsibilities as a role model for students.”
