Natalie Munroe, Pennsylvania English Teacher, Suspended For Trashing Students on Blog

by at . Comments

Natalie Munroe, a high school English teacher in Pennsylvania's Central Bucks School District, has been suspended for going off on students in her blog.

After her school found out Munroe was writing blog posts about her students for her friends and family to enjoy, she was quickly suspended without pay.

"I don't think I did anything wrong," she said on Good Morning America.

Some of her best lines, which could easily be Sue Sylvester quotes if coupled with the Glee character's penchant for bullying, include these gems:

  • "Although academically okay, your child has no other redeeming qualities."
  • "I didn't realize one person could have this many problems."
  • "There's no other way to say this, I hate your kid."
  • "A complete and utter jerk in all ways."
  • "I hear the trash company is hiring."

Her posts also reference "out of contol," "rude, lazy, disengaged whiners," and "rat-like," "frightfully dim" students who dress like "streetwalkers."

The school superintendent says her behavior was "very egregious" and "certainly could result in termination." Her blog is now being investigated.

Asked if it ever crossed her mind that someone would find this, Munroe said, "No, not really, not ever, in fact, it was up there for over a year."

Munroe said that on her blog, she was "not writing it not about anyone specific, they were caricatures of students that I've had over the years."

"It was meant tongue and cheek for myself and my friends, it was not for mass consumption... I'm sorry that it was taken out of context."

"But," she adds, "I stand by what I said."
