ST. LOUIS – A Missouri high school teacher resigned after one of her students discovered online video containing erotic material from the teacher's time in the adult film industry.
Tera Myers, a 38-year-old science teacher at Parkway North High School in St. Louis, was put on administrative leave Monday after a student discovered x-rated films online that Myers made in the 1990s.
A spokesman for the west St. Louis County School District said Myers decided to resign because she was concerned about the impact it would have on the school.
In 2006, Myers was suspended under similar circumstances when she was a teacher in Paducah, Kentucky. Teachers and parents stood by Myers in Paducah; however, school officials failed to renew her contract.
Myers actions were not illegal, so nothing ever shows up on pre-employment background checks, typically performed by school districts.
Myers will be paid through the end of the school year. She will not be returning in the fall.
