You mean teachers are real people with their own opinions?

Seeing as I have so many teacher friends, here is an interesting read definitely worth checking out.  In the world of Facebook, Twitter, blogs, email, and almost an unlimited amount of other communication tools available (most with permanent retention), it's pretty scary what some school communities are firing teachers for. With that  said, I had this image as a kid of my teachers doing nothing but going home and reading books and correcting my homework.  I certainly didn't picture them as other people who live normal lives, never mind "crazy" stuff like drinking an alcoholic beverage or going to a rock concert.  Seeing so many of my friends who are teachers now and still living normal lives is something I still haven't adjusted to.
