Teacher, 50, resigns after OnlyFans account was discovered by officials

An Ohio school teacher has become the latest educator to leave the profession after having set up an OnlyFans account.

Jennifer Ruziscka worked for the Springfield Local School District as an English teacher for almost three decades, but earlier this year school officials learnt of the adult content she was creating for sites like OnlyFans and Fansly.

She was placed on administrative leave on January 29, with her last day at the school being the Friday prior.

A hearing had been scheduled for January 30, but the 50-year-old teacher handed in her resignation the day before.

Jennifer was accused of ‘participating in conduct unbecoming of a professional educator’.

As well as being an English teacher, Jennifer was also a cheerleading coach and yearbook advisor with a salary of $74,720.00 at the time she resigned, the New York Post reports.

She had since issued a statement where she reflected on her years as a teacher.

Jennifer said, as per 13 Action News: “I was honored to teach 9th grade English at SHS where my service spanned nearly 3 decades, and during what is often a thankless job, I was recognized and awarded for my innovation, dedication, and performance.

Jennifer Ruziscka was a teacher for nearly 30 years.


“My reputation was exemplary as one who put her students first, went above and beyond expectations, and created an engaging learning environment where students knew they were valued, motivated, and loved.”

The statement continued: “Understandably, that has led many to theorize why I elected to jeopardize a position I cherished so much. While disclosing specific details might offer a reasonable explanation to some, it would come at the cost of ruining the reputation of someone else.

“Enough damage has been done and I am not comfortable bringing unwanted attention to anyone else and causing that individual to pay for it.

“In Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus Finch explains to his daughter, Scout that ‘you never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view…Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.’

OnlyFans attracts users from across the globe.

“As I have always been one who stands in the shoes of others, I hope others will now stand in mine.”

While Jennifer is no longer a teacher, her LinkedIn profile states that she’s since taken on the role of a 7-12 grade ELA tutor for an online learning platform.

Jennifer isn’t the first (and probably won’t be the last) to leave teaching because of OnlyFans.

Last year, Samantha Peer was forced to resign as a science teacher after filming X-rated content on school grounds.

The same happened to Brianna Coppage, who was placed on leave after officials found her OnlyFans account.
