PostSubject: (E-News) Teacher loses job over Facebook posts   Mon Aug 23, 2010 1:10 pm

A TEACHER who was forced to resign after calling her students "germ bags" on Facebook has admitted what she did was stupid, but refused to apologise.

June Talvitie-Siple, 54, from Quincy, Massachusetts said she thought her Facebook posts were only visible to her friends when she also described the parents of her students as "snobby" and "arrogant", The Patriot Ledger reported.

The high school maths and science teacher in Cohasset, Massachusetts was forced to resign from the school after parents spotted the posts and complained to the school superintendent.

"She (the superintendent) did what was probably the most appropriate thing to do," Ms Talvitie-Siple told ABC News.

"I embarrassed her, I embarrassed the school district and, you know, if I were her, I probably would have done the same thing. It was not a surprise."

Ms Talvitie-Siple had complained to her friends on the social networking site that her students were "germ bags" as she had been sick for six months and students kept infecting her.

She also wrote: "I'm so not looking forward to another year at Cohasset Schools," adding that the community was "arrogant" and "snobby".

"I was being very stupid," Ms Talvitie-Siple told The Patriot Ledger.

"It's not somebody else's fault. I know not everyone in Cohasset is arrogant and a snob, but I?m not going to apologise."
