Last Friday, we received a text during Listeners on the Loose about what a teacher did on Twitter that got her in trouble.
A high school math teacher in Colorado named Carly McKinney is on paid administrative leave after she created a Twitter account by the name of CarlyCrunkBear where she posted photos of her half naked or smoking marijuana and having posted multiple posts about smoking marijuana on school grounds.
Here are some of her tweets:
'Watching a drug bust go down in the parking lot. It's funny cuz I have weed in my car in the staff parking lot.'
'Just got called Ms McCutie. Point for being clever, however you are still jailbait.'
You can view the photos here: http://www.thefrisky.com/2013-01-31/meet-the-worlds-most-idiotic-teacher-carly-mckinney-nsfw/
Even though she is a math teacher at a high school, Carly is only 23-years-old putting her only 5-7 years older than her students!
You can't put someone this young in schools and expect that they can be mature and positive mentors. There should be a rule that you cannot become a teacher until you are at least 30. I think any younger than that is too damn young to be teaching kids.
At 23 she's still a kid; she's too emotionally young to really be able to educate kids and teens. She probably just got out of college and still has the party girl mentality. If she was an older teacher, she would know that this kind of behavior is completely “career inappropriate.”
