She’s making the internet hot for teacher.
Former special needs teacher Courtney Tillia has replaced the puny paycheck she made in front of the chalkboard with a staggering six-figure income snapping sexy shots on OnlyFans.
“I make four times the annual income I would make as a teacher,” the Arizona native, 33, told The Post of her avant-garde career change. “I’ve been making even more money during the pandemic because people are just stuck home wanting to enjoy my content.”
But outside of posing in lusty lingerie pictures and naughty-girl nudes for her 200,000 online admirers, Tillia is a wife and mother of four just trying to make ends meet.
“Back when I was a teacher, my family really struggled financially,” said Tillia, who now lives in Los Angeles, California. “OnlyFans allows me financial freedom. I can provide everything my family needs and more.”
Although cash-happy now, Tillia’s transition from molding minds in the classroom to blowing minds with her bodacious body didn’t happen overnight.
“I‘d been teaching special needs students at an alternative school in Phoenix for six years,” said Tillia, who holds a master’s degree in special education.
“I suddenly found myself in a really dark place,” she added. “I was beginning to hate my job and that darkness began spilling over into other areas of my life.”
After tendering her resignation with the school in 2016, Tillia, with support from her husband, Nick, pursued a career in bodybuilding and fitness modeling. But that unshakeable darkness she felt persisted.
It wasn’t until a chance meeting with a boudoir photographer that the fire in Tillia’s soul was reignited.
“He asked if I wanted to take lingerie or nude shots,” Tillia told The Post. “At first I was nervous. But once we started, I felt so liberated and free. I finally felt like myself again.”
An OnlyFans superstar was born.
Tillia, going into her third year as an internet exhibitionist, is finding herself back at the teacher’s podium.
Only this time, the OnlyFans model is teaching women worldwide that there is no shame in expressing their sexuality — whether they’re earning a living online or standing on line at the supermarket.
“Women have been shamed for expressing their sexuality for such a long time,” Tillia said.
She also now runs a life coaching brand that focuses on female empowerment.
“I work with hundreds of women all over America, Australia, Europe and everywhere,” she said. “I’m helping those clients break through the shame and guilt that’s been imposed upon them for wanting to be free to express their sexiness.”
“I knew right then and there I wanted to keep experiencing that feeling of being powerful and sexy,” she said. “And more importantly, I wanted other women to feel that way too.”
As for any judgment she might receive for promoting “sex work,” Tillia told The Post: “I guess I’m a sex worker. But I’m not ashamed of that.”
“I feel better than I ever have in my life,” she said. “I’ve changed my life financially. I’m changing the lives of other women. I’m happy just doing me.”
