Pennsylvania Teacher Suspended for Telling Truth About Kids Nowadays

Posted on | February 16, 2011 | 6 Comments

They ought to pin a medal on her:

Teacher Natalie Munroe makes no excuses for writing blog posts about her students which include statements like, “A complete and utter jerk in all ways,” “although academically okay your child has no other redeeming qualities,” “I hear the trash company is hiring,” and “There’s no other way to say this, I hate your kid.” . . .
The 30-year-old teacher used the name “Natalie M” and never identified the name of the school in the posts that also lashed out against other teachers and administrators. But once word got out it was her, the school suspended Munroe with pay.
In one posting on her blog she called her students, “out of contol,” and “rude, lazy, disengaged whiners.” . . .
In another, she created a list of comments teachers could use on report cards to describe students, like “rat-like,” “dresses like a streetwalker,” and “frightfully dim.”

So now we have finally learned what a public school teacher has to do to get fired: Tell the truth.

Her blog is Natalie’s Handbasket.
