Eeek. I'm curious what she wrote on there that was THAT bad.

I notice from searching on facebook for her name that she is an '08 graduate of WMU.

That is insane. Her 1st year of teaching (definitely an assumption based on her facebook info.) and she got into trouble. Not good. Not good.

I have friends who are teachers that should read this story. Not only do they have inappropriate pics on their Facebook accounts; they have stories about their students and personal lives that should not be posted. Teachers should not hang out with their students outside the classroom!

I would like wood to follow the wzzm crew around after they go off the air. I know a waitress that used to work at the beltline bar and she said Juliet Dragos and co. are rude and are bad tippers.

What she posts on Facebook is her own business. She should have been more careful about who she is letting read it. Whatever she wrote was probably the truth.

I saw Juliet Dragros at the New Year's deal downtown (My son wanted to see the Plain White Tees) and she was wearing a Fur. Blech!

Who does she think she is? Ivana Trump!?

That would go right along with all the other not real news stories that 8 does every day.

I know many people who are teachers who allow their students to see their facebook pages. Definitely not a good idea. facebook has privacy settings so you can limit what people see/who can find you. More people need to take advantage of this.

I have been a waitress for years and Juliet Dragos has always been a pleasure to wait on and is a great tipper. Maybe Wood should have followed around Rick Albon who was a gross pig who wouldn't stop hitting on us.

As for the topic on hand-finally a teacher gets in some trouble for what they have posted on these social networks. I have been shocked by what I have seen on some of these teachers social pages. Good for Bangor Schools to step up to the plate.

If she has tendered her resignation with the support of the MEA, it must have been pretty bad. You don't just resign immediately unless you've screwed up in a big way.

Gee the school placed her on leave because she exercised her 1st and 2nd admendment rights? I see big lawsuit. I would recommend that she even file a criminal complaint with the DA against the school. So effing what if she had a photo on her own facebook page? So owning a gun makes you a danger to children or something? Stupid people!
