Impending Return Of Blogging Central Bucks Teacher Has Students Divided

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (CBS) – The Central Bucks School District is preparing for the return of a high school teacher whose profanity-laced blogs about her students six months ago made national headlines (see previous stories).

The school district is speaking out for the first time about Natalie Munroe, who is expected to be in the classroom at CB East High School on August 29th, when students return from summer vacation.

But just how many students will be in her class is in question.

Anne-Marie Green reports…

The district says she has a legal right to employment, but so far 60 students have asked to be kept out of her classes. Those requests have been granted.

Principal Abraham Lucabaugh says the comments posted online by Munroe caused untold damage to the school and its students.

“Her comments were unprofessional, disrespectful, and disturbing, particularly coming from the heart of an educator,” Lucabaugh says.  “Moreover and most importantly, they were crass and cruel.”

Without identifying any of the students, she described them as “whiny,” ”disengaged,” and “frightfully dim.” Lucabaugh says he will closely monitor her English and Debate classes.

    Has anyone stopped to think that her comments may actually be true?

    Ready for a brave, new, and wildly unique teacher’s journal? One that’s deeply thoughtful, literate, and downright funny? Then enjoy A Dixie Diary, at http://www.adixiediary.com.

    The response from readers all over the world has been astonishing. Actually debuting during the February fury of the Natalie Munroe business, this unique online journal shows a different look at what happens in the schoolhouse by a very rookie teacher who loves his work and his students, but he expresses his thoughts and observations in a hugely different way than Mrs. Munroe. Sure, there are some intense student-teacher moments, even some choice words, too, but mostly it’s world-class hilarious and heartwarming … like reading a good book.

    It’s the look at a teacher’s madcap classroom world we’ve been waiting for. It’s simply mesmerizing.

    Students should become wildly and uncontrollably flatulent in her presence.

  4. JOSEPH MEACHAM says:

    I AGREE WITH WHAT SAID BUT I STILL THINK SHE SHOULD FIND ANOTHER SCHOOL TO TEACH AT. IT IS ALMOST LIKE A COLLEGE FOOTBALL COACH RIPPING HIS PLAYERS AND THEN RETURNING TO COACH THEM. THE THESIS OF THIS PROBLEM AND THE FLASH MOB THING IS THAT THE CURRENT GENERATION OF KIDS BEING RAISED ARE ROTTEN HUMAN BEING BECAUSE IT IS NOW FASHIONABLE AND COOL TO BE A A$$HOLE . tHIS GENERATION ALSO HAS A PROBLEM SPEAKING TO PEOPLE AND HARBOURS A LOT OF ANGER. SOME OF IT MAY BE FROM TV OR MUSIC BUT I THINK THE PROBLEM EVEN GOES DEEPER.

  5. Pauly Revere says:

    Hmmmm…..In the one video, the principal says he will make all of her comments available to reporters in printed form. Sounds like they are going to make sure that this woman gets the full “treatment.” She’ll be getting two “unsatisfactory” ratings from this administration no matter how well she does so they can have a legitimate reason to can her.
