Why Is It Always the English Teacher? CB East teacher suspended for blog investigation: "'Be careful what you post on the Internet,' Natalie Munroe told her students year after year.

Maybe if she had listened to her own advice, she wouldn't be where she is right now: Suspended and at risk of losing her teaching job at Central Bucks East High School.

Munroe, who has taught English at CB East since 2006 and has a salary of $54,500 this year, wrote a blog called “Where are we going, and why are we in this handbasket?” for more than a year. In between blog posts about muffins, Food Network stars and her favorite movies, she posted long, profanity-peppered rants about Central Bucks administrators, her co-workers and her students.

“My students are out of control. They are rude, disengaged, lazy whiners,' she wrote in one post dated Oct. 27, 2009. 'They curse, discuss drugs, talk back, argue for grades, complain about everything, fancy themselves entitled to whatever they desire and are just generally annoying.”"

First day of the school year this year, the principal at the school where I work had a staff meeting where she told everyone to be careful what they posted on Facebook because even if you think only your friends can see it, eventually it will get back to me. Apparently one of the teachers (not sure if it was an English teacher) had a "vent" on her Facebook page and was slamming school administration...and, yes, it did get back to her.
