(BUCKS COUNTY, PA) The Pennsylvania teacher who blogged complaints about her students will return to school this fall.
Natalie Munroe, who has taught English at Central Bucks East High School since 2006, was suspended with payafter students found her blog this February.
Superintendent N. Robert Laws said at the time that Munroe's blog posts about her students and co-workers were "very egregious" and "certainly could result in termination."
The school district confirmed Wednesday that Munroe would return, but declined to comment further. It is unclear why the district is allowing Munroe to resume her duties.
Munroe's blog was called "Where are we going, and why are we in this handbasket?" She wrote for more than a year about Food Network stars, recipes and her favorite movies. In between those posts, she wrote long, profanity-peppered rants about school administrators, her co-workers and her students.
"My students are out of control. They are rude, disengaged, lazy whiners," Munroe wrote in October 2009, a little more than a month after she started her blog. "They curse, discuss drugs, talk back, argue for grades, complain about everything, fancy themselves entitled to whatever they desire and are just generally annoying."
Munroe did not name students in any of the posts reviewed by the newspaper.
