While many of us would just go back on the hunt after losing a job, one teacher has taken a slightly alternative route and has been raking in more money than ever since getting fired.
Sarah Juree, 40, was sacked from her teaching role after it was found that she was uploading adult content to OnlyFans while still working inside the classroom.
Juree expressed that the circulated photos were meant to 'humiliate' her but the former teacher now boasts an income six times higher than her annual teaching salary.
The former teacher was working within the Department of Defence's Starbase program, which included educating STEM subjects to fifth grade or year six students.
Juree reportedly started up her OnlyFans account to ease the financial pressure she faced when teaching alone was no longer enough to make ends meet.
She was later persuaded by a colleague to sign up to the platform when her entire life changed overnight.
Speaking on the 20 Minutes Of Your Time podcast, Juree said that the whole ordeal was 'devastating'.
She explained: "When someone uses your photos and distributes them all over a social media platform in an effort to humiliate you, it's devastating."
Juree added that the local reporter 'victimised' her through 'weaponising technology and photos' against her.
Speaking out against revenge porn, Juree also noted pointed to the double standards that played a part in her sacking.
However, Juree has since revealed her hefty bank balance that has sky-rocketed six times over since she was fired.
While admitting that she 'absolutely loved' her teaching career, Juree explained that, despite having a full-time job, she also had to 'juggle five side hustles' just to keep financially afloat as a single mom, via Insider.
These included; teaching group exercise classes, Keto nutrition coaching, tutoring kids, a teeth whitening business, and designing shirts and mugs.
She disclosed: "I felt constantly stretched and overwhelmed with trying so hard that I'd often cry in the bathtub at night. My kids started calling me 'sad mommy.'"
"I became increasingly depressed because of the financial stress. Then inflation went sky high – gas prices skyrocketed, my grocery bills doubled and I became even more financially desperate," Juree continued.
Juree went on: "A friend started an OnlyFans page in April 2022 and told me she made $10,000 in one month. I decided to give it a go and started a page just to sell nudes on the side to supplement my teaching income.
"Last June I tried out during the summer vacation. Within a few days, my photos were copied and sent to my employer. I was sent a termination letter and my 20-year teaching career – and primary source of income – swiftly ended."
The former teacher has since expressed that getting fired was a 'catalyst for a new direction in life."
Juree revealed that she has since made her 'entire annual teaching salary in just six months'.
"As a teacher I made $55,000 a year, but in the last six months I've earned over $58,000 through OnlyFans," she said.
"The most I've made in a month is $17,000, which happened right after I got fired. Since I was laid off I've made a total of $75,000."
While Juree admitted that her OnlyFans income 'fluctuates' from month to month - it's clear that she's earning heaps more than she ever did as a teacher.
As a way to boost her earnings, Juree found her 'niche' and leaned into the 'teacher fantasy' that many of her fans 'seem to have'.
She explained: "I do this by offering exclusive report cards where I rate their manhood and give 'Miss Sarah' stickers to loyal fans.
"I primarily sell nude photos and explicit videos behind a paywall as well as video chats. I sell my panties too."
According to Juree, fans pay '$9.99 a month' to view her content, and does all the admin work for 'herself' as a way to 'keep costs to a minimum'.
"Being an OnlyFans model has largely been a positive experience," she added, "but I got dragged by a lot of internet trolls who tried to humiliate and body shame me after I was fired.
"Some people would say I had cellulite or stretch marks, but I have worked hard at building up my confidence so I don't let them affect me."
Self-described as a 'Millionaire Mama', Juree revealed that getting fired was 'heartbreaking at first' but she is now 'on the path to financial abundance'.
