LEVIS, QUE.— A high school office assistant who moonlighted as a porn actress has been fired for her extracurricular activities.
The woman — also known by the porn moniker Samantha Ardente — was suspended last month from the Quebec City-area high school after a student spotted her in a porn video on the Internet.
School board officials fired Ardente on Thursday after they were unable to reach agreement on her transfer to another job.
“We believe that the facts and the actions that led to this incident are inappropriate, unacceptable and incompatible, not only with our mission, but also with the values that we hope to convey to our young students,” school board chairman Leopold Castonguay said in a statement.
“Under the circumstances, we believe that we have been open and have proposed appropriate measures.”
Ardente said she will appeal the board’s decision to let her go.
She told Montreal radio station 98.5 she offered to immediately stop her pornography career.
Ardente had been a school-board employee for nine years.
She has appeared in several porn flicks, including “Serial Abusers 2.”
The 14-year-old student who recognized Ardente in the film had tried to get her autograph and she asked him to keep his discovery a secret.
But the kid let the cat out of the bag.
Word of the video spread quickly through the school and, before long, students were forwarding each other the Internet links.
