How comfortable we feel after spending a little time on Facebook. Everyone posts whatever they please about whatever strikes their fancy. And that “current” status line is a real tease. In just a couple of sentences, we post whether we’re having a good or bad hair day and so much more. Unfortunately, a first grade teacher from Paterson NJ forgot that the whole world really is watching what you say.
A first-grade teacher in Paterson, N.J., was suspended on Thursday after she posted on her Facebook page that she felt like a warden overseeing future criminals, district officials said. The teacher, who has not been publicly identified, was suspended with pay from her position at School 21 after parents complained to the school and asked that their children be removed from her class,district officials told The Record of North Jersey.
