Why Teachers Shouldn’t Set Up A Porn Business On School-Issued Macs

A special education teacher from Lincoln High School in Stockton, California, is currently on paid leave after she set up a pornographic website business on a MacBook issued to her by the school. Heidi Kaeslin was suspended when school officials discovered her moneymaking scheme, and she is now under investigation.

However, Kaeslin wasn’t the only one running the site. She was accompanied by Richard Fields, a former officer with the Stockton Police Department, who was assigned to the school as a resource officer. Fields told The Stockton Report that Kaelin’s involvement was limited, and that he acquired sleazy domain names to develop them into websites.

The school district has reportedly hired a computer forensics specialist to inspect Kaeslin’s Apple laptop; their report is expected later this week. The district will issue a ruling by the end of this year, but it doesn’t look good for the duo.

Chet Quaide, a district attorney, said the school adopted an ethics code in 2003 which requires teachers to “adhere to the highest ethical standards” and “to attain and maintain the highest possible degree of ethical conduct.” He added: “The code says that for breaches to constitute ‘unprofessional conduct’, ” they must “involve jeopardy to student welfare; evidence malice, serious incompetency or bad judgment; or show a consistent pattern of misconduct.”

    How is this considered porn? She was clothed and most shots where from the chest up and featured a shirt I heart teachers. She did it to make a lil ad money and figured she was hot because her students always looked at her figure. 

    Seriously, is this country moving backwards?

    I’m not sure if this story is relevant to Cult of Mac. Couldn’t this person have just as easily set up her business on a school PC laptop? I mean, what does it matter that it happened to be a Mac? I’m sure lots of people do dodgy things while using a Mac, but does it matter?

    Unless she was so inspired to “think different” that she set up a porn business just because she had a Mac :P Though somehow I doubt it.

    anybody know the link to her site?

    most school teachers are pretty dumb, especially when it comes to technology so this makes perfect sense to me. 

  • SpanishTeacher

    Yeah, she had to be pretty dumb when it comes to technology to buy sleazy domain sites and set up complete porn sites. If you meant she was dumb for using a school-issued computer, that’s different.  Otherwise, your post sounds stupid.

    Most of the sites were taken down, but this report has the pictures http://news.lalate.com/2011/11

    She posed in I heart teachers shirt, not naked. She would then sell shirts to at this site http://randhentertainment.com/ but the shirts have been removed now.

    All of you are missing the point… The issue is not computer related. The issue is misuse of “company property.” It’s no different than “borrowing” pencils from your workplace or making personal calls on your company issued cell phone. My comment: What was she thinking?

  • Chris

    that teacher is now suddenly popular among the students.

    “Most teachers are pretty dumb”? You are very ignorant. This lady does not represent “most” teachers. Yes, she is “dumb”!

    I’m still trying to figure out why CoT even made this an article. What a waste of pixels.

  • Sergio Ruelas

    Wow haha ..I’m shocked to know that my school made it on here!!!

    Yes it is. Who gives a crap if she does this stuff or not? The decrepit no life no sex administration of old people who are just jealous.
