Teacher axed over racy pics sees student’s relative launch petition for job back

A US teacher who was suspended after students found the racy content she sold online is being backed to return to her job by relatives of on of the pupils.

Brianna Coppage was put on leave Wednesday (September 27) after an interview with two administrators of the St. Clair High School team in Missouri. There is no official word that she has been fired but she admits she is unlikely to return after access to school emails and other software was removed following the revelation made by students.

The 28-year-old, who used the alias Brinley Love, had been creating adult content on a number of websites. And now, the aunt of one of her ex students has rallied behind her, setting up a Change.org petition with the aim of getting Brianna's career back on track. It has 40 signatures so far.

The petition titled 'help Brianna Coppage get her career as a teacher back' appeared on Change.org, after being started by a Tiffany Ray.

The accompanying statement reads: "So recently a teacher named Brianna Coppage at my nephew's school got fired she got fired because she had a only fans account because schools barely pay teachers then someone ended up leaking her only fans on the st clair talks Facebook page and they basically put her on leave she is an amazing person and cares about her students she tries to make them successful and would always be there for them if they ever were angry, upset, or were not having a good day do please sign this petition to help her get her job back [sic]."

One of Briana's former students even appears to have had their say, with a comment appearing on the petition page reading: "I loved having Brianna as a teacher and you should be able to do whatever you want in life."

A second comment read: "Teachers have personal lives too! $42,000 (almost £35,000) isn’t enough for a family to live nowadays."

The teacher previously said she was expecting the axe. Despite her extra-curricular earnings, Brianna believed the day someone discovered her adult content "was coming".

Speaking to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Brianna said: "It was kind of always like this cloud hanging over my head, like I never knew when I would be discovered. Then, about two weeks ago, my husband and I were told that people were finding out about it. So I knew this day was coming."

Brianna believes her side-hustle may have been rumbled after her and her husband appeared in a video with two adult stars with a large following.

School superintendent Kyle Kruse confirmed the district was "recently notified that an employee may have posted inappropriate media on one or more internet sites. Legal counsel has since been sought by the school."
