Natalie Munroe: Teacher Blogger (Video)

February 16, 2011

Blogger Natalie Munroe is a teacher too, however she might not be one of them for very much longer thanks to all the controversy her comments are causing. Find out the lowdown on Munroe and what exactly she did that has so many up in arms. There is a video interview for you to check out as well.

Pennsylvania teacher Natalie Munroe is also a blogger which wouldn’t normally be an issue except she was writing about her students. The 30-year old, who teaches English, published the blog on which she would rant about her students and other faculty members for friends and family to read.

Now it may not seem like a big deal to rant on a blog, heck that is what they are for right. Well here is a glimpse of the types of things she said about her students, then you can tell me how big of a deal it is.

Rude, lazy, disengaged whiners.
There’s no other way to say this, I hate your kid.
Although academically okay, your child has no other redeeming qualities.
A complete and utter jerk in all ways.

Although Natalie never revealed what school she worked at or the children she was talking about once the blog was discovered she was suspended from her teaching duties. Munroe defended her actions on Good Morning America, she seriously does not believe what she did was wrong, you can watch that in the below video.

Other than this latest drama surrounding her there is not a whole heck of a lot we know about the woman who some believe crossed the line with her remarks. If you have any additional information please feel free to share.

Which brings me to the question should she have been suspended and did she cross the line? Honestly based on the comments above I wouldn’t want this woman teaching my kids. I understand the need to vent we all do it but you are talking about kids here is it really necessary to bash them? I thought the whole point was to help today’s youth not tear them down. Those are just my thoughts though on Natalie Munroe the teacher blogger.

    Why does she teach if she dislikes her students so much? She should change her job as soon as possible.

    Natalie Munroe started out teaching with the belief that she could make a difference. She still wants to. But somebody has to address the negative behaviour issues, being experienced by all who try to learn and teach in this toxic atmosphere. Students, in short, have to grow up, and act like young adults.

    My previous comment might have indicated a familiarity with Natalie Munroe. I live in Northern Canada and have no personal knowledge of her. I heard of the controversy on the radio. I just think that too many people are focusing on the messenger, Ms. Munroe, and not enough on what she is pointing out, the message. We need to get teachers a chance by having good student behaviour in the classrooms. I too was a teacher, who felt that I could have done better if I had motivated students. Students need to be highly motivated for their own good and happiness. They need to take the message of the blog to heart.
