By now just about everyone has heard about the Pennsylvania teacher who vented on her personal blog about the troubles she was having with student motivation and student behavior in general. The story got me thinking about how vulnerable a teacher who uses social media such as personal blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc. can be. Like it or not teachers are held to a higher standard. Putting yourself out there and expressing yourself can get you in hot water if your not careful.
Have you had any issues in using social media? Are you cognizant of the fact that you are somewhat in the public spotlight? Do you have any rules about using social media to prevent yourself from getting in trouble
