Pennsylvania, Feb 16 (THAINDIAN EWS) Teacher Natalie Munroe has defended her comments on a blog that seemed to abuse her students.

The 30-year-old teacher of Central Bucks East High School told ABC News that she doesn’t see anything wrong with what she did. She defended that most of the characters that she referenced in the blog were more of caricatures than real characters.

Though she seemed apologetic that the story on her blog “was taken out of context”, she insisted that she still holds on to whatever she said in the blog.

Some of the descriptions that she used on her students were; “A complete and utter jerk in all ways,” “although academically okay your child has no other redeeming qualities,” “out of control,” and “rude, lazy, disengaged whiners.”

When she was asked whether she wanted to hide her true identity by using ‘Natalie M.’ alias, she affirmed it and said that the blog had been there for almost a year and she was surprised that it was recently found.

Natalie was suspended after some strong comments about her students and other staff colleagues were found on her blog. She is currently on suspension with a pay. A disciplinary committee is investigating her behavior.
