    Yep she was totally unprofessional.

    and how would Froggie know she was speaking the truth?

    I sure could not discern that from the linked article.

    I guess Froggy thinks all students and parents are:
    "she wrote describing students as "germ bags" and parents as "snobby" and "arrogant."

    I am not sure I would want someone stupid enough to post that being an administrator in our education system anyway.

    i'd agree with the germ bag part in general,that's what kids do, and since this is one town over from where i live, i'd agree with her assessment of a fair amount, not all, of the parents around here. additionally, she was a contract employee, so no one's going to have her back. people are really stupid about what they put out on the net.

    Most are when it comes to school, to hear parents tell it their children are angles.

    Making a stupid mistake does not mean a person is stupid. I would hope that the board looked at her entire career and not just an internet posting. Otherwise, that would be stupid. Maybe its time for school personnel to be offered malparactice insurance. A doctor makes a mistake; people can die. A teacher makes a mistake; someone might get insulted. Hmmmm.
