ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Officials of a suburban St. Louis school district say they had no idea that a teacher hired four years ago had previously appeared in adult films.
   A Parkway School District spokeswoman said Wednesday the teacher's previous employer -- a Kentucky district -- had said nothing about the woman losing her teaching job there because of her work in the porn industry.
   The Missouri district said in a statement earlier this week that the teacher divulged her past to her principal Friday. The district says it accepted her request to be placed on administrative leave for the rest of the school year.
   St. Louis media reports have identified her as Parkway North High School science teacher Tera Myers, and her Missouri teaching certificate shows she previously lived in Kentucky. Her phone rang unanswered Wednesday.
