Teachers, okay not okay?

(I had to make a new post because some members chose to be inn appropriate and CM deleted it so play nice ladies).

Do you think it is okay for teachers to post sexy pictures of themselves online? What if it was done before they were teachers? Do you feel the same if they had done porn prior to being a teacher? If you are against it, please explain why. Thanks!

I think it's fine, as long as their kids aren't friends with her like on Facebook or something. She/he is allowed a personal life. If I did that I would use a different name.

LOL...they deleted it because your call out post violated the rules.  

I see nothing wrong with a teacher posting pictures to her personal facebook page.  I'm not a fan of teachers that cross the grey area and have students and parents on their friend's list.  I think it's best not to cross that line and keep private life private.  

The issue with porn is that the teacher has no way to control the audience and it could significantly undermine their ability to teach, especially if they teach teenagers.

Umm pretty sure it got deleted because you were blatently targeting a CM member and used her damn avatar...but anyhoo...

Like I said in that post, teachers are allowed to have an adult sense of humor, adult interests, and a life outside of school and their students. On an online forum or social media page that her students should not have access to, there is no problem. And again, mind yo' bizniss!

*innappropriate

you know, like using the avatar of a member here to "illustrate" your point when that is not at all necessary.

 Inappropriate?

Anyway, I would hope that teachers have a clean, average, ordinary background with no bizarre episodes in their past or extracurricular activities in the present that are seedy and weird. Usually the truth will come out so they shouldn't have anything to hide .  I think teachers need to set a good example for their students. I would be pretty upset if my kids' teachers put freaky pictures on Facebook or had been porn stars. Ewwwww.

While I don't see what the big deal is necessarily, I hope that the teacher who willingly allows those photos to be online is aware that with a few keystrokes, not only their student's but the parent's of those kid's can see the photos.

As for porn, again, I don't see the big deal. Just simply know there is a chance a parent and/or student might see it..."Oh hey...that's Miss Bazooka, Johnny's home room teacher doing that......to him......on the screen."

This. But then again, my kids would not be allowed to friend their teacher on FB under any circumstances.

 well I guessI missed something? LOL.

Anyway, sure, teachers have a life outside of the classroom but I would hate to have my kids find out that their teacher was a porn star or something equally gross and crappy. They need to set a good example for the kids . I don't think kids need to think that porn and inappropriate photos on Facebook are just peachy, and nothing unusual, you know?
