Leah Lust AKA Tiffany Sheppard

I remember when the story of Florida biology teacher Tiffany Shepherd was first reported last year.  For those that don't know the story, she was fired from her position as a teacher when pictures of her in a bikini surfaced from her part time job as a hostess on Smokin Em Fishing Charters.  When she lost the job, she claimed it was because of those pictures.

At the time, I thought who cares what she does in her own time, so long as it does not interfere with her full time vocation.  However, according to the school board, they cited excessive absenses as the reason for her termination.  The firing was determined to be of merit because she never did return to teaching.  As you can see, she is an attractive woman and with the publicity of her termination she drew offers from Playboy magazine.  She turned those offers down because she was afraid that it would hurt her chances of ever teaching again.

A lot can change in a year.  Despite her efforts to return to teaching, she has been unable to land a teaching job.  Not only has she been unable to find work, but she went through a divorce and lost custody of two of her three children.  Desperate to earn an income, Tiffany Sheppard has started a new career, in the porn industry under the name Leah Lust.  In a bit of an ironic twist, one of her first films was under the title of "My First Sex Teacher."

According to an article on the NY Daily News website, Tiffany is quoted as saying,"I'm not particularly proud of it. To be honest, I hate it," Shepherd told "I'm an educated woman, but I never thought it would come to this. No one gets brought up thinking they'll be a floozy."

It doesn't sound like she is particularly happy with her new vocation.  Or it could be she is just saying what she thinks people would want to hear.  Personally, I do not have a problem with her new job, so long as she is involved in it willingly.  I hope for her sake that she can be satisfied in whatever path she takes.  If she truly hates the porn industry, she should get out and take any job she can get.
