Teacher Resigns over Wall Posts
SOCIAL NETWORKING—U.S.August 20, 2010
A Massachusetts teacher is no longer employed at a Cohasset school due to unfavorable comments she made about students and parents on a social networking site, ABC News reports. School officials asked the high school math and science educator to resign after parents complained about the comments, in which she described students as "germ bags" and parents as "arrogant." "I embarrassed the school district," 54-year-old June Talvitie-Siple told ABC. She said she didn't realize that her wall posts were visible beyond her network of friends.
