Porn-Star Teacher? Tera Myers Loses Job Over X-Rated Past (VIDEO)


Tera Myers, a St. Louis high-school science teacher, is trending after she was forced to quit her job when a student uncovered her pornographic past.

During the 1990s, Myers worked as an exotic dancer and starred in about a dozen adult films as Rikki Andersin to help earn extra money. Five years ago, while teaching under the name Tericka Dye, she was suspended from a Paducah, Ky. school after the X-rated films surfaced there.

She later appeared on

, calling her porn acting the biggest mistake of her life. St. Louis school officials say they have no doubt Myers has moved on from her past, but unfortunately the adult videos are still out there.
