Three years ago, Allie Dawson was living paycheque-to-paycheque and struggling to find a way out of her “crushing” financial hardship.
After seeing her friends’ success on adult sites, the 29-year-old, who was in search of a way to make quick cash, started posting her bikini pics online.
Within two months, she had earned over $20,000 (USD) (£16,000) – almost double her monthly income.
But then, she received a letter from the education commission, which stated that a vote had been made with a recommendation that the teacher get a “reprimand” for the explicit content shared online.
The document also stated that an “anonymous email” had been sent to the principal regarding Allie posting photos of herself in lingerie, among other claims.
“I felt disgusted and violated, I couldn’t believe someone had found my photos and reported me,” Allie, who has 100,000 fans across her sites, including thousands on her Instagram (@missalliedawson ) told NudePR.
“It was so scary, I had no idea what was going on.”
“I was shaking on the call, as I really didn’t want to go to a hearing, but they said I was being investigated.
“I thought I was going to be arrested or end up in jail.
“I got a 10-page report with screenshots of captions from my posts, as well as in-depth details of my naked videos, including about my breasts, nipples and vagina.
Allie was given the option of accepting the reprimand or contesting it at a hearing.
She also claims to have received a phone call from a lawyer asking if she needed representation in court.
The now ex-teacher, who loved school growing up, wanted to “make a difference in children’s lives but says the long hours and demanding workload affected her mental health.
She was placed on medical leave at one point too, and in the end decided to skip the hearing and leave the profession – in favour of focusing on her new, lucrative, and rewarding career.
Allie, from Florida, US, said: “I was barely scraping by and I didn’t know what else to do, so I started my account.
“At first, I just wanted to be able to pay my bills but as I started making more money, I kept going.
I wasn’t making much more than I was as a teacher [initially] but I was being driven to breaking point with my old job, so I resigned and hoped for a better future.
“I put my heart and soul into teaching, as I loved it so much.
“I dedicated my whole life to it for years, until I was too stressed to carry on.
“On the phone calls, following the letters, I mostly just asked over and over whether I had to get a lawyer or go to the hearing until I was given a straight answer – I didn’t.
“I felt betrayed.
“I was a really good teacher, the kids and parents loved me.”
Allie claims the last time she heard from a lawyer was in 2022, and since then, she’s tried to put the whole ordeal behind her – especially as she doesn’t plan on returning to teaching.
Despite everything, she doesn’t regret her decision to start OnlyFans and now earns $50,000 (USD) (£41,000) per month.
She added: “I was in a crisis and I did what I needed to do to survive.
“I wouldn’t have done anything differently, as it was the best decision at the time and ultimately, overall for my well-being.
“I’m so much happier now and I don’t feel like I have to force myself out of bed in the morning.
“I’m enjoying what I’m doing and my hard work is finally paying off – when I see how much I’m earning, it makes me feel so grateful.
“It does still hurt, as it was such a huge part of my life for so long and it sucks that people have to get so caught up on what others are doing to get by.
“But my life has changed completely for the better.
“I’m finally free.”
