Kirsty Buchan left her position at Bannerman High School in Baillieston, after Glasgow City Council launched a probe when furious parents complained to the local authority.
But the mother-of-one – whose page, Jessica Jackrabbit, allows access to her intimate content for a subscription of around £10 per month – resigned before disciplinary procedures began.
In the wake of the furore, Miss Buchan, from Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, has defended her actions, saying she needed the extra money after a drop in her income from the school.

She has previously sought a career as an actor, taking on small parts and advertising herself on acting websites.
On the StarNow website, where would-be actors make themselves available for jobs, her profile states: ‘I am working as a physics teacher and looking for some extra work on weekends and nights.’
She also stated she has done ‘some extra work in a low budget internet series’.
In her profile on the acting site, she states: ‘Any job working alongside people or leading a group (especially working with children) is a perfect match for my qualities.’
Miss Buchan defended her decision to go on Only Fans and said the impact of losing her job would put her under increased financial pressure.
She also highlighted the fact that Only Fans is a website for subscribers aged 18 and over.

She told the Scottish Sun: ‘I’m losing money in the run-up to Christmas and with the price of everything going up I won’t be able to afford to live.I own my house and pay taxes so I am not entitled to any help. I am using a fake name for my account and taking pictures and posing naked.
‘Some people are being so judgemental but I am on an 18+ site and if the kids get access to the content that is down to the parents failing to protect their devices.’
The physics graduate added: ‘Now people have asked me if I am being stupid but I am not stupid, I have a physics degree and worked hard.Who are others to judge? It’s my story to tell. I will do anything to provide for my son. How many parents can say they can do that?’
It isn’t the first time this month the school has made headlines. Teachers at the school have been taking strike action after concerns were raised over violent and abusive behaviour by pupils.
Members of the NASUWT teachers’ union said that teachers at the school have been verbally abused and threatened by pupils.
A spokesman for Glasgow City Council told the Mail: ‘This teacher was under investigation prior to tendering her resignation following the widespread distribution of wholly inappropriate and pornographic images.
‘The council has a code of conduct that all employees should adhere to and a teacher who has actively pursued a second income on this type of website brings their school, the council and their profession into disrepute.
‘We will be referring the details of our investigation to the General Teaching Council.’
