Back in the day, Nikki Andersin was a name in the Porn industry. But she decided the life wasn't really for her, so she joined the army, got a diploma from the GI Bill and went to work in the job she loved. She was, according to reports, very good at her job and got excellent performance reviews. (As she had in the Army and in the Porn industry) However, her past as a porn star 15 years ago has got her fired twice from a job she was very good at. She was not accused of Doing anything wrong, it was just that school districts in KY and MO thought it was not appropriate that a porn star teach high school science. I have to admit at first blush, I kind of feel she should look for other work. Even though she is very good at teaching science, and lord knows we need competent science teachers. But the bigger question is just how long should it take before you live down your history. In my case it is a very painful question. Nearly 30 teachers have been arrested for having sex with their students. Nikki was not one of them. The Japanese, Israelis, Koreans and Chinese are eating our lunch when it comes to science. We need qualified science teachers. I think it is past time the dead past buried its dead and people became more adult.
