A former gay porn actor and director who was fired for violating the Miami-Dade School Board's code of ethics has reportedly been cleared to pursue his teaching certificate again.

Shawn Loftis, 36, spent six years in gay pornography and owned his own company, World of Men, until he quit the industry in 2010. He then got a job as a substitute teacher at Nautilus Middle School in Miami Beach, but was later targeted in a "moral crusade" by the school's principal and was eventually fired for violating the Miami-Dade School Board's code of ethics and for gross immorality, NBCMiami.com reports.

In November, the Florida Department of Education banned Loftis from obtaining a teaching certificate for five years, but that decision was reversed last week by the state's Education Practices Commission, the website reports. And since he has already passed the exam, Loftis just needs a job to resume teaching.

“I just hope that a position comes available at Miami Beach High; that is where I really want to be,” he told the station.

Miami-Dade Public Schools spokesman John Schuster said the certificate, however, does not guarantee employment.
