Apparently you can get in trouble for insulting someone using snarky quips—that is, if you’re a teacher and the insults you’re blogging are about your high school students.
Since 2005, Natalie Munroe has been an English teacher at Central Bucks East High School. She makes over $50,000 per year and by all counts she doesn’t seem to enjoy her job or her students.
How do we know about her apparent discontent? Well, Ms. Munroe happens to have a very dangerous hobby – blogging.
“I’m being a renegade right now, living on the edge and, um, blogging AT work. However, as I’m blogging about work stuff, I give myself a free pass of conscience. “
Oh, Natalie when are you going to learn that blogging is a method the devil uses to mock and punish in an ironic fashion?
This week Natalie Munroe’s blog hobby made headlines because the ‘work stuff’ she was blogging about turned out to be her students. While she didn’t mention any names she didn’t have anything nice to say either.
In fact Munroe was quite critical of her students, using her English III Honors vocabulary to lambast her students’ work ethic, personality, attitude, and academic ability.
“My students are out of control. They are rude, disengaged, lazy whiners. They curse, discuss drugs, talk back, argue for grades, complain about everything, fancy themselves entitled to whatever they desire and are just generally annoying.”
It’s hard not to laugh at Munroe’s misfortune, because she’s obviously the rude, generally annoying whiner. She also isn’t the brightest bulb if she thought high school students weren’t Internet savvy enough to find her Blogger account.
Her most damning blog entry came when she was frustrated by the daunting task of having to write comments to accompany each student’s grade. Munroe was frustrated by the mindless ‘satisfactory’ or ‘outstanding’ comments so she decided to make a blog entry about what she would like to write in the comments section. Her little spat creativity accidentally helped toss her career in the garbage.
Here are ten of my favorites:
-A complete and utter jerk in all ways. Although academically ok, your child has no other redeeming qualities.
-Shy isn’t cute in 11th grade; it’s annoying. Must learn to advocate for himself instead of having Mommy do it.
-Gimme an A. I. R. H. E. A. D. What’s that spell? Your kid!
-Nowhere near as good as her sibling. Are you sure they’re related?
-Just as bad as his sibling. Don’t you know how to raise kids?
-Rude, belligerent, argumentative fuck.
-Weirdest kid I’ve ever met.
-There’s no other way to say this: I hate your kid.
High school kids may not be the most inspired students in the world, but you can’t begin to comprehend how enterprising they can be when an authority figure issues unkind criticism upon them. They become straight up vindictive.
As of now Munroe is under investigation for her controversial blog entries, but I’d be shocked if she’s not fired. Because I know whoever was called a ‘rude, belligerent, argumentative, fuck’ by Munroe will make it rain fire and brimstone on her ass.
