Anyone with a child in the high school knows who she is and why she is suspended. I don't think it's a secret but she can probably sue the district if her name is published before it's all said and done. Just my guess
You are right. It is a matter of NYS Personnel Law. All 50 states have laws about public disclosure of disciplinary matters.

My daughters knew who it was, but they are clueless as to why. They really liked her and her style of teaching.

Seriously?? She taught nothing. She let them do homework from other classes, let them listen to iPods all of class and was on her cell phone all through class. The students have list six months of class when she wasn't out in leave she was acting and speaking inappropriately. The new full time sub has a new course outline cleaned out the class room and has given notes and a schedule of tests and assignments. I pray they pass the regents in june with only half a year with a teacher.

Since we are moving toward a more transparent government, a law keeping "disciplinary matters" under cover of darkness should be repealed. If you work for the taxpayer and take taxpayer money, you should not have the right to hide anything from the people. What is kept private should be very little.

There have always been teachers who acted and spoke inappropriately to students. They should have started that hunt back in the 60s, or actually much earlier.(Did they FIRE the teacher who was caught watching porn at school? Hmmm...)

If they want to start firing incompetent teachers, they better start back in the elementary school! And they should start yesterday.

Both of my daughters had her, and both say that the whole situation was not as bad as it is being said. They said she allowed them to listen to music while doing their work etc, as many of the teachers do now. she was and is not alone in many of these accusations.

Inappropriate teachers? you don't say....and bus drivers, and aids, and coaches...go figure. If you want all that to NEVER exist then maybe home school is more for you.(oh, unless you are human and may slip yourself)
We live in a world where trying to over protect our children will probably cause them more harm then help. One day they will be out in the real world and have to learn how to deal with many inappropriate things in it.

While I agree with you I do not think childish pranks being filmed on a cell phone then posted on the vine is the actions of a adult let alone a teacher who should be setting a good example

Seriously, try St. Mary's. Or yes! Try homeschooling. There are more people homeschooling out there than you think, and they often do things in groups--field trips etc. that students in public schools never have the opportunity to do. Also, don't tell yourself that you can't afford tuition or don't have what it takes to educate your own child. You might find yourself very surprised and pleased.(Do this: Carefully read all the paperwork etc. that your child's teacher sends home; then take a red pen and find all the errors. Trust me. You will find them.)

We can have appropriate behavior in all school venues, if we choose. However, and this is a big job, we must take charge of the people who are supposed to be taking charge of all school employees. Good luck!

If a childish prank was only the worst thing going on at our school. Talk to your kids. Better yet, LISTEN. This is nothing compared to what other teachers are known for. Must be great to be that person without sin that could cast the stone for this teacher.....hope you are proud. Not saying the prank is appropriate. I am saying the price doesn't fit the crime. Or if it does,then lets be fair and go after the rest.

My kids go to St.Marys and after hearing about the antics at the public school I'm relieved. Wow, what kind if adult is this person.

You are absolutely right! However, if you think they really would fire someone from Ti's famous "Sperm and Egg Society," (aka the good ole boys' club, aka the "right" last name), you will be waiting until they come for you with a hearse.

Sure hope it is the teacher in elementary that talks in public about her special Ed kids beating her. She is a loose cannon! Where did they find this one?

My daughter was in the class and showed me the video on the vine!!!!!!!!
This educated was already on probation for comments made earlier in the year about how students should dress, her language was crude and inappropriate. She was placed on probation and was warned. Apparently she didn't listen

It's okay if you drive drunk. It's okay if you watch porn at the school--you can just "quit" and quietly slip away to some other poor, unsuspecting employer. BUT, no inappropriate remarks.

If they fired EVERY teacher who makes inappropriate remarks, we would be in big trouble. Tip of the iceberg. And this has been going on for decades and decades.

And yes, if you think you or your child's academic information, or behavior or anything else is confidential, you are just kidding yourself. When you enroll a kid in that school district, you might as well open your door wide open and invite them in to your home. Nothing is sacred.
