Porn Actress Teacher. A former porn actress turned teacher was placed on leave from a St. Louis High School. She appeared in a series of films in the mid-1990s.

St. Louis science teacher Tera Myers stepped down Friday after a student confronted her about her past working as an actress in X-rated films.

The 38-year-old Parkway North High School educator — who starred in pornographic videos in the 1990s under the name Rikki Andersin — has been placed on administrative leave.

In 2006, Myers came under fire for her adult film past in Kentucky, where she was teaching at Reidland High School under the name Tericka Dye.

Myers fought to keep her job and her story became national news. She even spoke with Dr. Phil, claiming that acting in porn was the worst decision she made at a point when she was desperate, bipolar and a homeless mother of two.

In a statement, Missouri’s Parkway School District says the teacher told her principal on Friday about her porn work and that a student had approached her about it. The district says it granted her request to be placed on administrative leave for the rest of the school year.

She will be paid through the rest of the school year but will not teach classes or return to her post next year.

Myers decided to resign “out of respect for her privacy and that of her family,” Paul Tandy, a spokesman for the school district, said in a statement.

“We’re surprised, very surprised,” Tandy said. “At the same time we feel for her and her family. We do believe she has tried to move on with her life. … Unfortunately, even though it happened 15 years ago, [the video] is still there.”
