All right, now, to the colorado science teacher that was fired after school officials found out she once starred in pornographic movies. Gio benitez has the story. Good morning, gio. Reporter: Good morning, elizabeth. What this california teacher hoped would end as a story of redemption, as become a cautionary tale. What you do in the past can come back to haunt you. And this morning, her porn actress past may have gotten her banned from working in a classroom again. Her 12-year-old and 13-year-old middle school students knew her as miss halas, the science teacher. But fans of 32-year-old stacie hal halas, knew her as tiffany six, the porn star. Now, she's out of a job, banned from teaching. A panel of three california judgesusly agreeing tuesday that her hard-core past has no place in the classroom. We've had a viral buzz going around with 12-year-olds and 13-year-olds showing porn. Rr: The oxnard school district initially fired halas last april, after students discovered she performed in at least 18 x-rated films. From 2005, to 2006. In a behind-the-scenes interview, halas reportedly talks about the dangers of her double-life. It's a little risky, wouldn't you think? Why? Because I'm a teacher. Do you think if they find it you'll get fired? Questionable. Reporter: She never starred in pornos while teaching. In october, she appealed and asked for her job back. But the state officials say her testimony was misleading and evasive statements and outright falsehoods. We're the professionals. We should have a high standard for all of us. Reporter: Las' attorney says she has changed her life. And now, only wants to be a teacher. She feels by redeeming herself, she sees it as a positive message to anybody. Reporter: Her attorney told me halas performed in the x-rated films because she needed money. She may now appeal to the ventura county superior court. Right. The fact she was in the classroom at the same time that she was making those movies. Yeah. A full-time teacher right after that. Okay. Thank you, gio.
