I don't see how this teacher's behavior can be tolerated. It's obvious she has anger management issues. If the students in her class displayed such behavior, they would be expelled.
I think her license to teach should be revolved until she can get a handle on her anger.

If your kids go to GPS and have even a minor infraction they are punished, maybe GPSS should have the same standards for their teachers as they do their students.Ellen, you blew it, this time-big time.

Ellen should be punished - big time. I had her as a teacher many years ago. I wasnt in the choir but I was in her music appreceation class. She didnt care much for us since we were not her adoring choir groupies. All we did was watch movies while she left the classroom to do "choir stuff".
