Do you all think it is appropriate for a teacher to drink and party in public? My children had been to a function recently at the Capitol arts with there mother and told me they saw there 2nd grade teacher dancing at 440 main and grabbing a mans ass.

There teacher is very young around low 20s and still very immature, I just think that if your going to act this way in public you might want to choose a different career path seeing a teacher should be the ultimate role model, back when I was in school my teachers were ultra religious and conservative, however it seems the crop of educators is getting younger due to the fact that the older ones go into office jobs.

I dont think parents should have there children out in places where teachers or anyone else may be grabbing other peoples bottoms. I think it is just as appropriate for a techer to have a few cocktails after work, and relax and have a good time as it is for anyone else to do the same. If you are worried about your children seeing behavior like that, you should'nt take your children out to places where things like that can be seen.
It all boils down to the parents. It is not the teachers job to set a good example for others children. They dont get paid for that. It is the parents place to tell the child what is right and what is wrong outside of school.
However, if the teacher is posting pictures on a public facebook wall where the children may have access, with no adult supervision, that is a different story. I know a few people that have lost their jobs over things like that.

What a person does on her time away from work is her business just like you. As long as she does her job it shouldn't matter.

Is it appropriate? Depends on personal opinions. I mean, yeah it may push the limits of what you find decent, but also its a great talking point to your children about how some people act a certain way, and why you believe it to be inappropriate or not.
However, teachers are people, and let's get honest for a few moments and admit that most teachers don't go into it as a job where they want to be a role model and an upstanding citizen. Truth is, they spent a bunch of money on a degree, and they need a paycheck to pay back all those student loans. I hate when people go around thinking all teachers have this selfless heart of gold and just love children.
And on a last note, teachers do NOT have to be religious, nor do they HAVE to share yours, or be conservative. You come off sounding - though I'm sure you're not - as an old man shaking his cane at the kids on his lawn. Times are changing, and in my own personal opinion she/he can go swing half-naked around a pole in her/his own time, but as long as my child is learning the correct information to help them in their pursuit of education and coming home each day fuller of knowledge than the prior, then I could give a rat's ass what she does on her own time.

Amen! Now ifshe came to a school function all torqued up that would b different. Also it amazes me how the female teachers r always targeted. I guess if ur not a member of the "good ole boy" club then there is stronger recourse for ur actions. Yes teachershould set good examples I agree with that statement, but if a teacher is out partying it up on the weekend at an adult party location(and u knowthe party doesntget startedthere til after 10pm, then the parents should b doing a better job pf parenting.

Why were the kids at 440 Main? It's a bar. I have to wonder. I mean seeing something like that is a given. I have noticed people with their children out too late a lot in downtown Bowling Green. My personal opinion on a teacher's behavior in a bar is irrelevant. I personally would overlook this one instance. Teaching is stressful and many drink and party to cope.

The capital arts has a lot of family friendly activities on Friday and Saturday nights and sometimes those productions are not over until 10pm and you have to walk to your car and may observe the 440 main crowd already partying. I had my children at 440 main about a year ago for a family birthday in the main dining room and when we were leaving the restaurant at about 9 pm I noticed a lady that use to teach at my sons school dancing and acting very immature, it's not that the kids are going to these places, it's just sometimes you can't avoid these incidents. Teachers do need to be more careful though.
wow

Oh, how dare they, those evil and immoral beings, dare to go to a bar and embrace the humanity that is instinctively their lives. It displeases the heavens and the hypocrites alike. Get the hell over yourselves, "concerned" parents - they are people, not robots, and what they do outside of school legally is nobody's damn business.

I am a student at WKU and will eventually start teaching high school. When you become a teacher you are a teacher 24/7 whether you like it or not. The student determines that, not you. Your students are going to see you at Walmart, or out to eat, or in the mall. Here you are not a human, you are Mr. or Mrs. so and so... The last thing I want to be doing is teaching a student who saw me partying the night before. They aren't going to be listening to a thing I say because now the person that they looked up to and held at such high esteem likes to run around and play grab ass at the local bar. To adults it is easy to say that you can separate work from your personal life. Students unfortunately do not see it that way. They are the ones you have to teach. People are free to do what 3ever they want in their free time. It is their right, but for me I wouldn't want to make it any harder on myself by acting in that manner.

Well, kudos to you for being so righteous - but you are not a teacher 24/7 unless you personally view it that way. Teaching is a job just like any other job, maybe after a few years of it, you'll remember this thread, and think, "Oh, wow, I can't save the world or accomplish world peace, but I still want my paycheck."

And censorship of any kind is the root of all ignorance. Parents should be teaching their children the morals they want them to have, not a teachers behavior outside of school. As I said before, if parents view it as immoral, it is a great way to have that conversation and explain that just because that person is their teacher, and they must behave in that classroom, does not mean that the whole world thinks like them.

Because if they don't learn it young, they will figure it out on their own and do a little ass-grabbing themselves when they get older.

Well there is a conduct clause in techer's contracts. Dancing and grabbing an ass may not breach it but it's there. My mother and father drank so I was around it but I saw my 5th grade teacher drinking at Pizza Hut back in the day and it almost blew my mind. She was the most wonderful woman in the world to me and then I realized she was just like everyone else. I'm a professional and when I go out to drink I go to Nashville or Louisville. It's not necessarily fair but professional people have a reputation to uphold and it's just the way it is. You liberal idiots either aren't professional enough to understand or you're just trash!

I'll go with the trash one for me, even though either would work. I like how college professors act - so if I were going to teach, it would be there. Forget all the ignorant expectations put on people who work in the service industry - we are ALL just human, we do dumb shit, make mistakes, and sometimes aren't the most model of citizens. Nice to bring politics into it though, so now we all know you are one of those who loves Chick-Fil-A just for being bigots and hate that the world has changed so much women no longer have to wear skirts. ;) Really, nice one.

I will warn you as an experienced teacher that you MUST separate your profession from your life. Considering how degenerate most professors are, I am surprised you have such a view point. For all we know, that teacher grabbed her boyfriend's ass. When you get life experience you will understand how unfair it is to put anyone on a pedestal, including yourself. After all, she was at a bar, not at the local Walmart, family restaurant, or a school function. Give the girl a break, if she is doing that in a bar, she is looking for a sugar daddy so she doesn't have to work anyway. She probably started teaching and realized how stressful it is. I wish her luck.

First of all, teachers are the lowest paid profession. Driving to Louisville or Nashville may be out of the question. Second, you saw someone drinking at a Pizza Hut and it blew your mind? That is just sad. It's not like she was singing on the table with her shirt off or something. You probably caused that stress that induced the need to drink that night. I personally would never act how that teacher did, but really. I am hardly a liberal nor conservative either. I think if this a pattern in her behavior, it would be of concern. However, if this was one time and she is really young, let it go. I have seen teachers and administrators do worse-even on the job. I guess my live wasn't in a Mayberry bubble like yours.

No, they hire young girls that they can sexually harass and get away with it. There are plenty of older, more mature people looking for work in the local school systems.
