  1. This is what’s teaching some of the kids in our county! Not “Teacher of the Year” material for sure.

  2. Come on! Teachers are people,too! You have no idea what triggered this. Teachers are also victims of a abusive relationships, etc. I don’t know this person at all but I’m not going to say she should be perfect because she is a teacher. The amount of character you are expecting from her is certainly not is generally what is issued by way of respect in the profession, pay and unbelievable expectations to constantly tow a line of teaching the students content and character while having constant pressure. Give it a rest until you know the whole story. And just like any history you may never know the full story.

    Hope she gets the help she needs.
