From the classroom to XXX: Ex-teacher becomes porn star


By Al Pefley - email

PORT ST LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - She gained fame as the teacher on the Treasure Coast who took a part-time job as a bikini clad mate on a topless fishing charter boat.

Now, a year later, Tiffany Shepherd has found a new line of work. She's in the porn business.

Why would she decide to do it?  Tiffany Shepherd, 31, was a typical high school biology teacher at Port St. Lucie High.

But in the past year a lot has changed. And now you'll find her in front of a camera, totally nude, doing things her former students never dreamed she would do.

"I'm doing what I'm doing, and I don't really care what anybody says," Shepherd said. 

One of her movies, in which she starts out fully-clothed, begins like this: "Could you guys introduce yourselves? I'm Leah. I'm Mike."

Since the beginning of August, Shepherd has been making porn movies under the name Leah Lust. 

"I'm ready. You're ready? Yeah," Shepherd responds in another clip from the porn movie.

She has flown to Los Angeles and has done a number of porn films.

One of them is titled "My First Sex Teacher."

We found a few shots of her on various porn Web sites. In some of the pictures, the ones we can't show you, Shepherd is totally nude engaging in explicit sex acts with a male porn actor. 

"I have to provide for my children. And, you know, people are gonna say what they're gonna say and criticize. But, at the end of the day when they're all done, I'm the one that has to look at those little babies, and I'm the one that takes care of 'em and has to provide for 'em," Shepherd said.

Shepherd says she's doing it strictly for the money. "It's very safe. It's work. That's what it is. It's nothing else. I'm in it to support my kids, and they respect me for that because they know I'm not there to play games," Shepherd explained. 

Tiffany made a name for herself last year when she was teaching at Port St. Lucie High and took a part-time job as a bikini mate on a fishing charter boat.

She lost her teaching job, and says it's been tough finding a job ever since so she's giving porn a try.

"Do I respect myself? A lot of people said that I should have more respect for myself and not do it. Like I said, I'm the one that puts food on the table and everything else. I respect myself as a mother because I know in my heart I'll do whatever I need to do to take care of them," Shepherd said. 

Tiffany would not say how much money she's making doing porn movies.

She's divorced with three kids, ages 11, 7 and 4.

She has a bachelor's degree, and says she's working on a master's degree in curriculum and instruction at FAU.

Tiffany says one day, she hopes to go back into teaching and might even try to open her own school some day.
