A sixth-grade teacher at an all-girls academy in Dallas claims she was fired after word got out that she was in porn movies more than 16 years ago.

Resa Woodward, a sixth grade science teacher at the Young Women’s STEAM Academy at Balch Springs Middle School, was terminated on November 29th after the school received an anonymous tip.

Woodward, now 38, is fighting the termination, claiming that she did violate school policy and should not be punished for something she did two decades ago.

“I taught in an all-girls STEAM academy that was all about empowerment for women,” Woodward said Tuesday. “The sad thing is that if these girls find out that I’m being punished for something that I did nearly 20 years ago and had no control of and fought to get out of, well, what does that say about empowerment?”

According to the Dallas News, the anonymous tip informed school officials that Woodward’s film name was Robyn Foster. A web-based adult film database lists Robyn Foster as active in the porn industry from 2001 to 2004 and credits her with 16 movies, including compilations of previously recorded material that was then released as recently as 2013.

“The caller was concerned because he/she did not want his/her child exposed to things like this,” according to the report. The tipster believedWoodward was trying to deceive the students and parents.

Woodward claims she was forced into porn when she was living with an older man and they were experiencing financial woes. She said she was able to leave the situation, finish school and become a teacher.

Woodward, who is also a well-known activist in the Libertarian Party of Texas, said in a Facebook post last fall that she had to call the police on a drunk driver while traveling. A man, claiming to be associated with the Libertarian Party (which emphasizes free will), did not take kindly to Woodward calling in the authorities. He then detailed her past on social media.

The 38-year-old teacher has been placed on administrative leave but filed an appeal with the Texas Education Agency. She will likely be sinking a large chunk of her savings into getting her job back.
