I never said never. I said regularly. I don't want my kids smelling alcohol and/or drugs on their teacher's breath/clothing.
It's not about the ideal. It's about being responsible.

She is free to get absolutely trolleyed every Friday and Saturday night as she pleases. She can sleep with whomever she chooses, send nude pics to as many consenting adults as she pleases and live whatever lifestyle she wants. But as long as she turns up to work clean, sober, bright eyed and bushy tailed, then I really don't see how what she does can be called into judgment. She's teaching kids a set curriculum, not raising them after hours and on weekends.

It's not semantics, look at the thread title, it asks if my child's teacher's personal life matter. It does matter. It shouldn't be held against them in most cases, they are human. But there IS a line.

IMO what a teacher does in their own personal time only matters if it effects what they are doing at school, and honestly, if it is effecting the way they work as a teacher, other staff/principal/parents are going to see that, and the teacher won't be working long anyway, without ridiculous reports from outsiders with clearly no idea about personal time and minding their own business.

If the post had said 'my kids teacher turned up at work stinking like booze, with last nights make up on and pupils like 10 cent pieces' the condemnation would have been universal.
But there's been zero suggestion her work performance was impacted.
Teachers don't get paid enough to be asked to act like Nuns and Priests outside of work hours.
Actually that was tried and it didn't work out so well!

I'm another with the majority here - I think it's a disgrace that some anecdotal tales of partying and a few nudie pics are going to presented to the principal to try and defame this woman.
Her job is that of a teacher, and if she's doing that right (which it sounds like she has been if they were 'happy' with her) then that is what matters.
