Wonder how many school administrators it took to arrive at this decision?

Hopefully enough of them to give all parties the proper amount of objective consideration needed when something like this happens.

Children's future were affected by this individual.
It is a tragedy but lets get serious - this person should not teach children again.

How "lost" could she have been if she was holed up at a residence .... most homes are near a road of some sort, and Montreat is not that big of a place.... why didn't she just walk down the drive and wait for a car to pass?

Maybe she was off her meds.

I am about to get sick of this article. I am glad she was found, had the attention and the school board had enough sense to not let her teach. Peace be with her daddy as he was so worried about her and if she did this on purpose, she should get down on her knees and ask her poor daddy for forgiveness, both her earthly and heavenly father.

Sometimes people aren't well and need help. Because of that, they should never work in their career again? The person in question and her loved ones were the only ones seriously affected. Leave them alone. Yeah, we were all concerned, but now those of us who are uninvolved don't need to be anymore. Move along. Nothing to see here. Please allow this woman and her family the chance to heal in peace.

You are 1000% correct! Let's all get on with our lives and let this lady get on with hers. Story's over, no more info. Just pray for this lady that she will get her life back in order. She needs privacy and time to heal now, so let's all move on.

I'm not sure anything has occurred that should keep Susan from her job - at least for long term. People keep spouting mental illness. Maybe so. Maybe not. I would bet that many of the people posting here have had an emotional issue as some time or another that caused them to do something irrational. What if you, you or you had been kicked off your job because you maybe got a little weird after your man or woman left you? I'm not too sure that I was all that rational after a breakup or two and I turned out alright. And there are plenty of other life-issues that might make a person act irrationally. Anyway, I don't believe emotional issue = mental illness. But, it COULD be more.
I wish Susan all the best and a speedy comeback from whatever the cause.

I wouldn't want to give her the responsibility of the care of my children. She has shown she can't even take care of herself. Whatever the reason, the facts are the facts.

Oh, and she is supposed to be a role model for young children and got tattooed in a spot where they have to see it every day.(All parents don't think their children should be taught that tattoos are repectable.)

Yeah, I don't care much for tattoos myself. While I respect the right of any adult who chooses to do so to have one - or many, I agree that it shouldn't be taught to impressionable young children that they're OK. Perhaps teaching is for this lady but maybe to a much older audience. Just my nickel's worth.
