    However, if they are going to be stupid and regularly get drunk, take drugs or send nude photos to random hookups... well I don't want my child being taught by them.
    That made me giggle a bit ... Sorry off topic but you'll find LOTS of teachers regularly booze up. In fact they'd probably be chuffed if you have them a bottle of red as an end of year gift

    What teachers do in their own time in their business. It is not like she is coming to school under the influence.

    As for the nude photos that is her business. If she gets sprung and the kids find out well it is a great learning example for my children of why they shouldn't send nude pictures!

    I love drinking with my teacher friends

    There was no suggestion this person drinks daily and smells like it.

    ANYONE who is drinking so much daily they are turning up to work smelling like booze is not doing the right thing by themselves, their clients or their employer.

    Letting loose on the weekend is so not the same thing!

    I wonder if anyone would care if this woman was a man. Would her friends be spreading vicious rumours and condemning her for a nudey photo? or is it just another case of sl*t shaming and how dare she not behave like a lady.

    There's a pretty big space in between the OP, where she is getting on it out of hours in her own time, and turning up to work substance affected. I'm pretty sure every single person in this thread would agree the latter is completely not on and should be reported.

    I don't have school aged children yet, but no, a teacher's personal life doesn't really matter to me. What she does in her own time is not relevant to me unless it impacts on her ability to teach my children.

    Well, maybe I should have said I don't knowingly/willingly associate with people who take drugs. I've seen what they can do to people first hand (not just when you're high either) and I've tried a few myself. Not the same for everyone I'm sure but it's easy to get sucked in and have one night a week turn into a lifestyle.

    These things are illegal for a reason and I don't think you can argue that a person who breaks the law for the sake of a night of fun has the right 'moral compass' (as someone else put it) to be teaching children.

    Just my opinion.

    Yet you and I have tried them and have enough of a moral compass to raise kids. As I also said, she's following a curriculum, not teaching life skills, that's our job as parents. A line of coke every now and then is hardly the making of a delinquent who is incapable of being a teacher. And in this instance, we don't even know if it's a regular occurrence.

    I accept that I have a fairly liberal view on recreational drug use which is why I don't see why this teacher should be shamed by a parent who has heard things through the grapevine. But regardless of my view on drugs, I maintain that every single person has the right to a private life away from work and what people do is no one else's business (as long as they're not hurting anyone else).

    Maybe not ... but if it doesn't make a criminal it at least makes you someone that other may look down on for lacking self control and a respect for the law
