Stacie Halas, the woman who was fired from her job as a teacher at an Oxnard middle school for having appeared in a porn, said today that her reason for getting into the adult industry was age-old: She needed some cash.

Halas was let go earlier this year after students saw her in a video and pointed it out to administrators. She's now appealing her firing in a hearing before a panel of judges that started on Monday.

During the hearing, reports NBC Los Angeles, she said that she was nearly $100,000 in debt six years ago when she made the decision to take a role in "Tiffany Six," the film that did her in.

She said that over the course of about nine months, she made about $20,000 for appearing in adult movies, with an average fee of $1,500 per scene.
