We need to work to make sure what she said is not true in future. Sadly some of it is true but I agree a teacher shouldn'tsay it ---it also is a example of how dangerous texting, e-mailing, facebooking etc. is-YOU CAN LOOSE YOUR JOB! Or worse. Teachers, Cops, Firemen, Politicians and Clergy are targets. They need to heed the advice of older folks-forget about all there gadgets and stay employed!
