This week, Tericka Dye resigned from her job as a school teacher in St.Louis after one of her students revealed her controversial past.
Dye, 38, is a former pornstar who, at a young age, ended up in California and became involved in the adult porn industry. After serving in the U.S. Army, she supposedly starred in such films as “Major Slut,” and “Butt Brats 7,” under the name Rikki Andersin.
After enrolling in college and a stint in the U.S. Army, Dye went on to become a school teacher but controversy over her career followed her. Since her former career wasn’t illegal, she passed all background checks and became a science teacher and volleyball coach but was suspended with pay in 2006 after the school superintendent felt she would be a distraction because of her background. Her contract was not renewed and her story was even featured on an episode of “Dr.Phil.”
Years later, Dye ended up at The Parkway School and went unnoticed until this year when a student inquired about her porn past. Dye took a leave with pay until the end of the year and it was reported that she does not plan on returning in the fall.
