Teacher with porn past ap­peals fir­ing

Texarkana Gazette - - METRO/STATE -

DAL­LAS—A 38-year-old Dal­las teacher fired when her porno­graphic ac­tress past be­came pub­lic says she was forced into “sex slav­ery” as a teenager and wants her ed­u­ca­tion job back.

The Dal­las Morn­ing News this week ob­tained a copy of Resa Wood­ward’s Dec. 13 ter­mi­na­tion let­ter.

The sci­ence teacher at Balch Springs Mid­dle School, in the Dal­las In­de­pen­dent School Dis­trict, was put on ad­min­is­tra­tive leave when her past sur­faced. The dis­missal let­ter cited her work in “adult con­tent me­dia” ac­ces­si­ble on­line.

Wood­ward ap­pealed to the Texas Ed­u­ca­tion Agency, say­ing a con­trol­ling man forced her into “sex slav­ery” and adult films.

TEA is re­view­ing the case. An ethics code re­quires Texas teach­ers to have good moral char­ac­ter.
