    The only think that would bother me is the drugs. But I would not be taking to the principal unless I had proof.

    Let's face there are some nasty a$$ed parents out there that would do and say horrible untrue things about teachers. It's sadly a fact of life. I truly wish it wasn't.

    As passing around naked pics I hope she hunts them down and sues the living crap out of them or at least scare the freaking crap out if them. What disgusting piece of pig poo of man does that.

    Unless there is evidence she is partaking in illegal activity, & she has signed a 'lifestyle agreement' in her contract, I dont know that the school is allowed to fire her for having s$x or drinking alcohol or sending a naked selfie to her (?boyfriend?) in her personal time. My god,I will teach my girls to NEVER srnd naked photos to anyonr. Men are douche bags,you just cannot trust that private material will stay private. IMO, a good principal will defend the teacher in this situation. This never was an issue at my school, but I had a great principal who would always stick up for the teacher first (whilst still investigating any allegations.... innocent until proven guilty). Our principal would always tell a parent to go to the teacher directly to sort out any issues, & approach the principal if they felt they didnt get a satisfactory resolution. She always said 'we dont play games' - eg, 'i dont like this teacher,so fire them or I will pull my kids out of this school' - the principal would say 'no worries, there is the door'. This was in a high quality private school. I really hope for this teacher that she has a good supportive principal who can counsel her through her behaviour outside of school &professional conduct.

    Wouldn't faze me in the slightest. Being a teacher doesn't mean she's not allowed to have a private life. I love a drink, was probably considered a party girl when I was younger and have taken drugs socially. Never, ever impacted my work. It's possible to have a bit of fun and not be a raging alcoholic, druggie. As long as it's not adversely affecting her ability to do her job, then people need to mind their own business and stop gossiping like teenagers. And to be honest, if my children were at risk of being exposed to her behavior, I'd be questioning my own parenting; why are they out partying with adults?!

    Absolutely not, not my business unless something is happening in the classroom and even then I mean my child's classroom.

    Female and male teachers are entitled to private lives too, the only thing that would concern me was the drug taking ( if it was proven) but only because it's illegal.

    I used to live in a small town and knew some younger teachers that loved to party, more power to them, if I taught a class of thirty snowflakes 5 days a week and had to put up with some of those snowflakes parents, heck a doodly I would be reaching for the wine too!!!!

    It's nice to see that not all parents think we should be nuns and priests in our spare time

    Hmmm...

    I'm a teacher and I have no problems with teachers wanting to go out dancing or having a drink.
    If however their lifestyle started impacting their job or more importantly their duty of care over my child then that would be an issue.
    Obviously she is making some unwise decisions.

    AFM - Loved the clause in the contract about not loitering in the ice cream shop too long!

    I think unless the teachers private life impacted her teaching I wouldn't worry..

    At the end of the day there is no actual proof she is taking drugs.
    Clearly taking nude photos of herself and forwarding them to people is a silly mistake. Shame on the person that forwarded them on to others.

    I'd have a problem with the drugs but nothing else.

    I don't think using cocaine is a wise choice but as long as it isn't impacting on her teaching, it's not mine or anyone's business. Teachers are human like everyone else and deserve a private life.

    TBH my eyes rolled more at the BIL's friend that labels her a 'party girl' in a derogatory way yet was a) happy enough to sleep with her b) distributed pics of her without her consent. Likewise the friend of a friend sounds like a trouble maker. Why does she have a copy of the pic and why does she think it's ok to have such a private photo of someone else that was never intended for her?

    Frankly the BIL's friend and this woman at the party are worse than the 'party girl'.

    It wouldn't bother me, it's no ones business!
    I'm sure some parents do a hell of a lot worse and nothing is ever said to them.
