A high school teacher who was placed on leave after district administrators discovered that she has an OnlyFans account has now reportedly resigned.

Last month, Brianna Coppage - who taught English to freshmen and sophomores at St. Clair High School in Franklin County - was asked to meet with district administrators after an unnamed individual complained to the school after coming across her page on the adult-content subscription service.

Soon, an internal investigation carried out by officials ensued, and Coppage - who goes by Brooklin Love on the site - had her access to her school accounts at St Clair High suddenly revoked.

District administrators then made the decision to suspend the former English teacher from her $42,000-a-year job after she came clean about posting "inappropriate media on one or more internet sites," per The Independent.

Speaking to St. Louis Post-Dispatch in September, Coppage admitted that she understood the risks involved with the account, stating: "It was kind of always like this cloud hanging over my head, like I never knew when I would be discovered," adding, "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."

The former educator - who holds a bachelor's and master's degree in education and was working towards a specialist degree - admitted that she began the lucrative gig over the summer as a way of supplementing her teacher's salary and to help with hefty student loans.

On average, she brought an additional $8,000 to $10,000 every month from her OnlyFans earnings, in addition to her $42,000 annual salary as a teacher.

Coppage explained that she chose her side hustle because she thought it offered a certain level of privacy, as only paying subscribers could see the material. However, she believes a recent explicit video in which she appeared along with her husband and two popular performers in St. Louis may have reached people in her community.

"There is this expectation that teachers should be the moral leaders of students, and I do not disagree with that," Coppage told the Post-Dispatch. "I taught the curriculum. I taught students reading and writing, and I didn’t guide them on my thoughts or beliefs. … And I can’t control what people think of me."

In a new interview with The Messenger, the Missouri teacher - who was previously placed on leave - revealed that she has now left of her own accord, and is planning to focus on her adult content career after amassing a massive following due to the publicity surrounding her story.

She shared that she quit her teaching career to avoid any additional outcry from the viral story, emphasizing: "I don’t want to fight the school district. I’m just ready for peace," adding: "I knew that nothing was ever going to be the same if I went back. That was just the best option.

"I don't want the school to continue getting hate," Coppage said of her decision. "I would like the education of students to be able to return to normal, they deserve to have a great year."

The ex-professor said that she has suspicions about who discovered her profile and reported it to school officials. "Never do I think that students or children should have been exposed to this. I truly believe had an adult not found it, and I was told that an adult is who reported it, students never would have known," she said.

Whatever the method, the ex-professor was exposed and soon found herself the subject of several news articles that proceeded to name both her and the presiding school district.

Coppage said that forced her to make a quick decision to pivot to an adult content career full-time as a return to teaching wouldn't be possible after "having your face and your name plastered all around the world".

She reportedly became emotional when describing how she will miss all her students and the memories and milestones they have created over the years. "It's been a journey for sure, the last couple of days have definitely been a roller coaster," she said. "It turned our life upside down."

Coppage now plans to focus on her OnlyFans account to make more money and because, she said, she enjoys the work. She added that her income has increased significantly since she was outed thanks to several thousand new subscribers.

"I've gotten a lot of support on the site. So that's definitely encouraging," Coppage told the outlet.

Well, it looks like it all worked out in the end!
