If You Are Going to Waste the Time and Money to Become a Teacher,

at least use goddamned sense and don't have a background that would immediately disqualify you from a job, let alone licensure.

I am not kidding about this. School districts and licensing boards are extremely skittish about employing or licensing anybody who is not considered "fit for duty." Being a porn actress in the past certainly qualifies.

In Oregon, for example, any kind of conduct, current or previous, that is considered sexual misconduct is grounds for firing, license revocation, or denial of a license.

She also withheld the information when she applied for a job, which further sank her career as a teacher:

Judge Julie Cabos-Owen said such a past matters in an age when technology makes porn easy to access and hard to bury.

"Although her pornography career has concluded, the ongoing availability of her pornographic materials on the Internet will continue to impede her from being an effective teacher and respected colleague," Cabos-Owen said in the 46-page decision issued Friday by the Commission on Professional Competence.

Halas, 32, was continually deceitful about her nine-month career in porn before she went to work at the school, the judges said.

Schwab said Halas "was being honest and forthright, but was embarrassed and humiliated by her past experience in the adult industry."

Way to go, idiot.
