High School Teacher Who Publicly Blogged Nasty Remarks About Her Students Suspended (Including Full Quotes from Her Blog!)

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Wow, it must really suck to be a student in Pennsylvania (at least the south-eastern part of it). First Montgomery county’s Merion school district spies on its students, now we find out that right next door, in neighboring Bucks county, they hire teachers who hate their students, and blog about it! Witness the tale, and blog, of one Natalie Munroe. Natalie Munroe is a high school teacher who clearly has even less respect for her students than they have for her.

You may have already seen the rote-reporting of this story, with the now-tired quotes from Munroe’s blog in which she says about her students such gems as “Frightfully dim,” “Rat-like,” “Am concerned your kid is going to open fire on the school,” “Seems smarter than she actually is,” and even a direct “I hate your kid.”

But while Munroe’s blog has been shut down, we here at the Internet Patrol have ways of making the Internet talk, and so here are some really choice quotes from Ms. Munroe herself:

The first semester of this school year, when I had a parade of whiny, entitled kids run to the guidance department to tell on me for giving them the low grades they earned on their shoddy papers, sort of scarred me…

On April 8th last year, something Munroe didn’t like about her day was that:

The fact that the jerk who was out 3 days around our last major assessment because his family took him on trip to Puerto Rico and then emailed me all of this nonsense about how he shouldn’t have to take the test on time because he was “excused” for those days, was out again today (the date of another assessment) because his family took him to the effing Master’s golf shit over Easter break.

While something that she really liked was:

 

“My cute spring-inspired outfit of flowy, flowery cotton dress.”

Interesting priorities there, eh?

Here are some more choice quotes:

“teenagers are complete asses. There’s no respect for adults, for authority, for teachers. Parents won’t allow anyone but themselves to discipline their kids, but THEY don’t do any disciplining either. For this reason, teens come to school and talk back, think it’s appropriate to try to go into my desk to retrieve a hackey-sack that was confiscated during use in class, and say things like, “What do you think that proves?” “

She also doesn’t reserve her public scorn just for her students:

“I am obliged to wake up just 14 more times this school year and trek to work. 3 of those are half days (2 days of finals and graduation day); 1 of them is a full day without students (thanks a lot to central admin for making us go in when the students are done the preceding Friday. ASSHOLES.)”

Do you think Ms. Munroe was surprised to be suspended by the very administration that she branded as “ASSHOLES”?

And the quotes that are making the rounds are actually taken from Munroe’s master list of comments she’d like to be able to put on a student’s report card:

Thus, for this blog, I will list the comments I’d like to see added to the canned comment list, as an accurate reflection of what we really want to say to these parents. Here they are, in no particular order:

* Concerned your kid is automaton, as she just sits there emotionless for an entire 90 minutes, staring into the abyss, never volunteering to speak or do anything.

* Seems smarter than she actually is.

* Has a massive chip on her shoulder. {Ed Note: Umm…pot…kettle..}

* Too smart for her own good and refuses to play the school ‘game’ such that she’ll never live up to her true potential here.

* Has no business being in Honors.

* A complete and utter jerk in all ways. Although academically ok, your child has no other redeeming qualities.

* Lazy.

* Shy isn’t cute in 11th grade; it’s annoying. Must learn to advocate for himself instead of having Mommy do it.

* One of the few students I can abide this semester!

* Two words come to mind: brown AND nose.

* Dunderhead.

* Complainer.

* Gimme an A. I. R. H. E. A. D. What’s that spell? Your kid!

* There is such a thing as too loud in oral presentations. We shouldn’t need earplugs.

* Att-i-tude!

* Nowhere near as good as her sibling. Are you sure they’re related?

* I won’t even remember her name next semester if I see her in the hall.

* Asked too many questions and took too long to ask them. The bell means it’s time to leave!

* Has no business being in Academic.

* Rat-like.

* Lazy asshole.

* Just as bad as his sibling. Don’t you know how to raise kids?

* Sneaky, complaining, jerkoff.

* Frightfully dim.

* Dresses like a street walker.

* Whiny, simpering grade-grubber with an unrealistically high perception of own ability level.

* One of the most annoying students I’ve had the displeasure of being locked in a room with for an extended time.

* Rude, beligerent, argumentative fuck.

* Tactless.

* Weirdest kid I’ve ever met.

* Am concerned that your kid is going to come in one day and open fire on the school. (Wish I was kidding.)

* I didn’t realize one person could have this many problems.

* Your daughter is royalty. (The Queen of Drama)

* Liar and cheater.

* Unable to think for himself.

* I hear the trash company is hiring…

* Utterly loathsome in all imaginable ways.

* I called out sick a couple of days just to avoid your son.

* There’s no other way to say this: I hate your kid.

These comments, I think, would serve me well when filling out the cards. Only, I don’t think parents want to hear these truths.

A little over a year ago, Munroe wrote that she was “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.”

An interesting rationalization, to be sure, particularly given the things she was saying about work, while on work’s dime – which is, of course, the taxpayer’s dime.

Now, it may be that you can understand Munroe’s frustration with the quality of the product (high school students) delivered to her after their eight or so years in our public school system. Or maybe not.

But if nothing else, one would hope that those hired to teach our children would a) be more understanding and tolerant, b) be more compassionate, and c) be smart enough to know not to publicly blog about how they really feel.

In any event, Munroe has been suspended pending an investigation by the school.

On a related note, Ms. Munroe is, at the time of this writing, about 7 or 8 months pregnant, so it may well be that she couldn’t care less about being suspended (one may presume with pay) – or, perhaps she’ll pull the disability card, and threaten to sue the school district for discrimination. One never can tell with the sort of person who takes a job they had to know they will hate, and then complains about it.

  1. I think she should have been fired. Teachers should be firm and teach respect. They should have high expectations. However, teachers should also have tolerance and compassion. Above all, they should like children and young adults. I am a teacher and I don’t want to work with this woman. I can tell that she has probably sucked the fun and excitement out of her classes. Her poor classroom management has brought these children to act the way they do. Every year I have a couple of kids that I don’t particularly like. I have parents that I can’t stand. I push through, I model what is expected in my class, I don’t give in, and I make every day as fun and exciting as possible. Do I have bad days and want to vent? Yes. Should I get to go home or to the teacher’s lounge and do so? Yes. Should I get to call kids and parents names? No. All of you that said you agree, would you want her to teach YOUR child? No. What you see in her blog is with her all day, every day. That is why she was fired. I am sure that her classroom management reflects her true feelings towards children. There may be children in my class I don’t particularly like, but I would never think to call them names. That is bullying. That is being a bad teacher.

  2. The parents who bred the little scary monsters are hugely irresponsible and are relentless in their efforts to shift responsibility for their failed parentage on the schools. Bravo, Munroe! Don’t let the politically correct mute your political authenticity.

  3. She never said names so i dont see why she is getting into trouble. Im glad that it got out. Maybe parents will be more active in their childs lives. A lot of children these days are so rude to their elders. Im 26 and i see it all the time.

  4. The teacher is right.The first day of a new school my son was at that time in the 11th grade and was asked if he wanted to get high.Schools need to be held accountable for letting the schools get out of hand.

  5. This teacher should be given a raise instead of being suspended!! Even my grandcchildren are disrespectful of teachers & it’s very annoying to us “oldsters” to see the teachers being treated as students seem to think it’s their right to abuse the school system anyway they choose.

  6. The person who wrote this article obviously has NEVER been in a classroom. So to ask teachers to be more tolerant, compassionate, understanding is completely moronic since they give that in spades with no reciprocity EVER and continued to have to deal with the social ills and problems of every community. As for her blogging it on her own private blog I am pretty sure our country still adheres to the 1st amendment which includes freedom of speech.

    I am sorry if parents were offended, although it might be that they saw themselves and their children in the comments that were made.

  7. Whatever happened to freedom of speech in this country? Her students can curse and verbally abuse her but she can’t say anything back. She didn’t address any individuals. She spoke of them as a whole. Parents have let the kids take over control of their lives and they inflict their misery on everyone else. When I went to school, you never heard of a kid bringing a gun or shooting anyone in school. There was no such thing as cursing a teacher, you served detention and faced expulsion. And what we have now is a direct result of parents giving up. This woman needs to know we are behind her. She is absolutely right in what she has to say about today’s youth. And that’s not to say all kids are bad, but drive by any school nowadays when it’s letting out and make your own determinations. Does it look like it did when YOU went to school. Parents wake up and take a stand. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR FUTURE!!

  8. The children now love luxury; they have bad manners,
    > contempt for authority; they allow disrespect for elders and
    > love chatter in place of exercise. Children now are tyrants,
    > not the servants of their households. They no longer rise
    > when eleders enter the room. They contradict their parents,
    > chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross
    > their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.

  9. I agree with her 100%. She probably should find a new field of work though. I couldnt do it either.

  10. I also agree with her. So many of our young people are growing up with NO accountability, nor do their parents seem interested in enforcing discipline or instilling respect. Oftimes, administration is more interested in appeasing parents and students than backing up their teachers. Students and parents should have to prove their commitment to learning instead of wasting others time.

  11. When you have an 8 year old that chooses to bite school staff simply because he chooses not to do an assignment – the kind of teenager this teacher describes is what that 8 year old will turn into without some intervention. Guess what I’m dealing with at the moment? I happen to applaud her for speaking her mind. It’s not like she was saying Johnny Johns in 11th grade who lives at 123 Main Street is a lazy jerk who will come into the school and open fire one of these days. She spoke her mind – hello freedom of speech. I hold my children to a higher standard which has my high school senior on the high honors list – the 8 year old we are adopting is slowly learning the household standards that his parents never taught him.

  12. I agree with her. While not all of her kids fit into her rant….I have seen some kids behave really badly in class and treat the teacher like crap…..she is clearly tired of it. Forcing them to a higher standard will only serve their purpose in college which will say these things right to their face…….time to stop allowing teenagers to run things!
