Unbelievable, the teacher has a toung ring get over it. There are a lot of bad teachers out there, and I think its no ones place to judge a teacher on an tounge ring. I had fat teachers, and Indians I could not understand at all. Some kids don't like fat people, you going to go and complain on them. Then those damn Indian teachers that cannot speak English, what a task that makes school.

Take it as a blessing your child got a teacher that can speak english. It's a poor job, getting paid a mediocre salary and having to deal with brats and even worse the overzealous parents and stupid room moms that gosisp over anything such as this. If you do not like this, maybe you should send your child to private school, because I can assure you their are alot of teachers that are worse; and who can blame them having to put up with such shit for such a small salary.

My God, I don't know this poster, but she annoys the hell out of me.

Too bad most of you parents don't have better things to do than freak out over a pierced tongue. Body-piercings, tattoos, etc., do not imply low-class people. I attended a high-end beach wedding a few months ago. Bride/groom/friends in their late 20s and mostly grads of Virginia Tech, now working in professional fields. There were piercings on many of them and lots of tattoos on the backs, shoulders and legs of the young women. Maybe you just don't get out enough to realize how common this is now with younger people.

As far as exposing your kids to sexual attire and people wanting attention -- just walk them down your driveway and point out your neighbors. I'm sure there are plenty of Moms with tight, low-cut tops, short-shorts, and boobs bouncing around as they jog. Be sure to draw attention to the Moms with thin bras that have nipples showing through their tops. Point out the Dads without shirts, showing their gym-hard bodies -- pretty sexy, eh? Likewise, point out the BMW, Mercedes, Acura, Porsche, etc., autos going down the road. A basic plain Chevy will get them where they're going, but they need to draw "attention" to themselves to prove they're successful people. Likewise, the McMansion homes.

Get a life -- and give your kids one, too. Stop being prudes and use regular situations to explain to your children the diversity in the world.

P.S. I'm an almost-60-year-old woman, recently retired from a 37-year professional career, with a six-figure income. I grew up in the 60s and had friends that spread the spectrum of the times, the drugs, the booze, etc. I never did drugs, don't drink, don't smoke and have been married over 30 years. My parents raised us as grounded, open-minded, strong young people -- and taught us not to judge others. We were told that's God's role, at the end of time as we know it. Want to judge someone? Look in the mirror and start there.

I met the teacher the other day. Mid 20s, new at teaching. I still do not know enough about her qualifications to say if she is a good teacher or not, that is not my point.

She spoke very strangely. Her lips moved, but her teeth remained closed. Clearly, she did not want me to see the piercing! Go ahead and close your teeth and try to speak intelligently. Not going to happen. You will come across like you a speech problem and I can now see why this is a distraction. Again, this is a DISTRACTION to the learning process.

For those who claim to accept this, I honestly doubt you would if it were your kid and their learning. But whatever, maybe you really do, and since you think that a tongue piecing does not have a sexual meaning, you probably just tell your neighbors that the sheep you keep in your closet are to remind you of the farm you grew up on. Again, whatever... I guess we'll read about your behavior in the papers.

To: A Regular Poster Here,

You seriously have personal issues. Now you're implying that someone with a "speech problem" would be a distraction in the classroom. Does that mean you feel that anyone with physical or mental limitations should return to the days of "out-of-sight, out-of-mind" -- go back into hiding? God forbid they are in the classroom with your child(ren) or you deal with them in the workplace or public settings.

The "sheep" comment just shows where your mind dwells. Maybe the parents of children who are in school with your child(ren) should be looking a bit closer at you and keep their kids far, far away. The pierced-tongue teacher may be the least of their problems.

Truly FCPS must be great if this is the biggest complaint that can be mustered.

Our dregs are G&T students in 90% of public school systems. Virginia universities have to establish quotas to give students from other parts of the state a chance to get in.

I really don't understand what is wrong with you. You seem to have some weird obsession with sexual deviancy... to the point where you create it where it does not exist. Perhaps you have some skeletons in your closet.

The teacher has no clue I inquired about the piercing. I met her by chance when I dropped something off at the school.

Actually, I think I will let it go. Liberal Fairfax County has spoken through the dozen people or so in this thread, who think it is fine to have a tongue piercing, maybe more, and prance around in front of a bunch of elementary kids like this should be accepted.

Interesting...

A child seeing a person, in authority, with pierced tongue is going to percieve something he/she shouldn't??? How exactly??? Unless YOU, as a dumbass mother, tell your child that piercing is wrong, he shouldn't have get effected by it. I have kids, and shits like you are an excellent example of how I DO NOT wanna raise my kidsn like you!!!! People like your make me sick.

Since most now are posting without readingmuch, if any of the thread, I think it is pointless to keep pushing this forward expecting support.

For those who keep telling themselves a tounge piercing is anything but wrong in a grade-school classroom at a public school, good luck with your kids, I'll stick to being conservative and live far away from the MTV generation that is so well embraced these days.

Moving to PW county would be laughable. The trash that is typically (still) found in that county would not only accept tounge piercings, but I am sure they have programs in middle school on how to get child care for their kids, and food stamp 101.

I should have expected that the South Lakes crowd here would also have little to offer for support on this. It is probably a prerequisite of faculty to have piercings there. Maybe now, I am sterotyping...

I do judge books by their covers. If you do not think it happens all the time, you have not been out much in the real world (not the MTV show you so embrace, either).

I have told my kid that piercig is wrong. But cited the health reasons for such. I have heard other parents have begun to pull their kids from the class in response to their own inquiry over the matter. I am sure it is just my values, Ha!

You can't seriously think you were going to get a preponderance of support, can you?

When, in the history of recorded time, has anyone with so trivial an axe to grind as this one, ever found "support" in an internet user group?

You didn't come here looking for support. Just agreement. For a few bored schmucks who would briefly entertain your fantasy of leadership. You wanted to pat yourself on the back, even if for a fleeting moment, because you managed to distract JerkyEater and MasterDebater from their XBox 360 long enough to grunt approvingly in your direction.

Go interact with the three-dimensional people for a while, "Dad." Sounds like you need it.

Better yet, volunteer somewhere. People less well off than the residents of FFC could probably use a conversation partner (and Lord knows you love your own rhetoric), and it might actually teach you something about what's important in life.

I find it almost disturbing the attention that this is getting. As crazy as it may sound to you right-wing neurotics, there ARE people out there who get piercings and tattoos, simply because they are "body art." It's just ridiculous that these parents are making such a big deal over something that really shouldn't have any bearing on your judgment of this teacher.

So if there were another teacher who conformed to the typical teacher dress code/code of conduct/etc., but was a horrible teacher, that would somehow be better? I can't understand that logic. As long as your child is getting a satisfactory or better education, what's the problem?

I am a mother of two and, granted, I am still a young mother, I still don't see a problem with a teacher having their tongue pierced. What happened to freedom of expression? Are artists not going to be able to paint pictures with nude subjects next? Doesn't this seem silly to you? I have two tattoos, both which are very easy to hide, but I didn't get them to hide them. In my professional career, I would be offended if asked to cover them up. It is art in my eyes, nothing more.

You ridiculous over-protective parents are what's wrong with this country. Teach your children what's right and wrong and someone with a metal barbell through their tongue shouldn't be an issue.

Ugh, you make me ill. How ridiculously close-minded and judgmental you are. You think that just because someone may sport a tattoo or piercing makes them "trash"? Wow, didn't Hitler make generalizations of groups of people like that, too? The only difference was his basis was natural physical features. That's just like saying that all people that wear Nikes are athletes. The people that will make snap judgments about someone without even taking the time to get to know them are ignorant morons such as yourself, sir. I know you find it hard to believe that there are people with tattoos and piercings out there that are intelligent, well-educated individuals, but believe me, we do exist. Grow up and worry about more important things. This is ridiculous.

Everyone said what needed to be said. Seems like the parents should just home school. If they really want then they should have a class for kids, or even a guest speaker who comes in, and talks about tattoos and piercings. It is a kind of decoration that some people like and some people don't. Its a preference, harms no one until you make a big deal out of it. Its your job to teach your kid what you think they should like. There opinions will out do yours in the future anyway.


Think of it this way if you hide them from "life" then get ready to have a kid who will grow up close minded like you who's closed opinions will get rejected like yours are being rejected by most people here in this thread.

Have them understand why the teacher has the tongue ring instead of making it seem wrong. You don't help your kids by saying something is wrong and closing the situation with just "wrong".

The piercing is frankly unprofessional and does not belong in an elementary school.

What if thas covered with tatoos? and had dozens of piercings?

I somehow doubt many of these posters would make the claim that it is not a distraction.

At what number do we cross over from this teacher exercising her individuality to it just being gross?

I can understand the "unprofessional connotation" that the piercing could convey. Nobody where I work gives a shit about my individuality or my right to express myself, so I voluntarily take my facial piercings out before I go to work every day. I accept what people expect as "professional", and it's not a big deal to me.

That said, I still think the mentality behind it is bullshit. I'm just as good of a worker with or without facial piercings. It's disgusting to me that people I've worked with for a couple years would immediately judge me negatively if I wore them to work.

So where do you draw the line? Does her tounge piercing make her any less of a capable teacher? If she had a hairlip, was in a wheelchair, had a birthmark on her face, or a creepy deformed hand, what do you think the child would tell you about his new teacher first?

If she was asked by one of her students during class about her tounge piercing, and she said, "Why, little Billy, I got this because it enhances my ability to perform fellatio; see, I even have this vibrating tip for it. Who knows what 'fellatio' is?" then yes, I could see a problem.

Maybe, just maybe, it could be something that makes her more interesting to her students, and thus, makes them pay more attention to what she says.

You need to crawl out from your bomb shelter, "Blast From The Past", realize this is the 21st century. You're lucky the only thing these teachers are doing is a tongue piercing.

I do think concerns about this are way overblown.

But that is not the point. Classroom teaching is very difficult, and especially for a young and lightly trained teacher. One can wax eloquent all day about uptight right wing neurotics, or how one should not judge a book by its cover, but really, is this something that the teacher should fight for? Hardly. Like it or not, even if unfair, it is and has become a huge distraction. Caring for the students and professional development come first - work is work and while you are there concern for focus and excellence must come first. Really good managers know this, practice it, and set a tone of seriousness that in the end works for all. The work is work ethic needs to practiced everyday, and it inculcates all sorts of integrity, especially in a "public" job like teaching. And to the extent that schoolteachers deign to be treated like professionals, well, they ought to act like them and avoid inviting needless distractions. And it is not as if there aren't any other number of less distracting ways in which one can express themselves.

By the way, unbelieveable, I understand your point about avoiding being overly judgmental with piercings and body art. But understand that there's a health issue with some of these practices - no reasonable medical professional is going to suggest that it is healthy to get plastered with tattoos (by way of example, hospitals are declining some forms of anesthesia in childbirth to women with "tramp stamps" on their lower backs for fear of harming the infant), and while I understand that physical expression should be left up to the individual, an excess of tattooing does to my mind rightly set off a judgment question as to how well such individuals are taking care of themselves. Heck, I am cautious as it is when going to competent,licensed medical professionals - I find it odd that so many people place trust in tattoo artists who "promise" they use clean needles and follow safe medical practices, but I guess that is just me. And any subjecting oneself to hepatitis or skin infections with alarming acuity just seems stupid. But again, it may just be me.

To be taken seriously it is probably best not to have a tounge piercing.

Do you really think you will get that job if you interview with a tounge piercing - porn does not count...I doubt it

Do you really want your doctor or accountant to have a tounge piercing...I doubt it

Hey Grandma - it's not the 40's. Face it, the only people that will teach your little brats are the young who still think they can make a difference. In 10 years people like you will have beaten them down to the point where they don't give a sh*t and they're only in it for the pension.

It'd be different if she had the Mike Tyson tribal tattoo on her face. And once your kids get used to the tongue ring they'll be back to picking on the fat kid, but don't worry - your kid is in her overly-protected bubble world of cookie cutter expectations.

You fucking overly sensitive, helicopter parents make me sick.

By the way, my daughter's 2nd grade teacher (last year) had a small eyebrow piercing and a tattoo on her wrist, but she's the best teach my kid has had yet.

1. The OP is a guy.

2. Responses like this only reinforce his already-established opinion that people who have body mods/support body mods are unprofessional, crude, and incapable of rational thought.

Almost everyone has a negative opinion of things that are different, or they don't understand. The OP is entitled to have an opinion, but I disagree with him that the person's worth as a teacher should be decided by a tounge piercing.

In this instance, you are acting just as close-minded as he is. It's not about the piercing, it's about accepting differences.

Go back to the religious compound you came from. We can hire someone to replace you in the homeland security job that brought you here, and not have to listen to your whining anymore.

I hate tatoos and piercings, too. But I also have enough brainpower to realize that this is the best public school system in the country, and if a teacher has a piercing, I can overlook that because they are probably the best qualified to teach children, especially considering that it is hard to find people willing to start at 33,000 a year in a county where it is difficult to live comfortably with a salary less than 50,000 a year (and if you have a wife and kids, you really need to earn 100k+ to be comfortable.)

Is your fear that you won't get a blowjob from this teacher? Because obviously, that's why she has the tongue piercing in the first place, right? To suck cock?

Adults and professionals are here to set examples. I believe in your right for freedom to express however as a teacher your common sense should at least take over and choose not to express your personal preferences to minors, especially elementary school children.

Tattoos are an expression of art. Piercings are, well, piercings. But, once again, they should not be shown in the classroom.

Most industries/businesses have dress codes. Example: In my profession, flip flops, bare midrifts, sleeveless or spaghetti strap shirts (you get the point?) are prohibited. Thus, our educational system should follow the same.

Think about it this way. You were at a fine-dining establishment, that provided the best service in town. Would you want your server to serve you with their tattoos and piercings showing?

A fine dining establishment, with entree prices approaching 30 dollars, is completely unrelated to an elementary school in terms of dress code.

Obviously fairfax county public schools would never hire someone who is covered head-to-toe in tattoos and has visible piercings all over the place. But a tongue piercing is generally not visible.

Of course, if the teacher constantly sticks her tongue out to purposely display it, that could be a reason to take action against the teacher. But I doubt that is the case here.

What on this planet of the gods gives YOU the right to determine how someone else dresses? She is no more unprofessional than if she had her ears pierced if she can speak clearly and convey her message to her students.

Considering that public schools are generally the place where children learn to be conformist and to never question authority, that's probably not a lesson they want to be teaching there.

Actually she can you fucking fuck deprived cunts. Jesus. This is a PUBLIC school system supported by a union. What don't you get. If you want your children to be taught by a corporation who can enforce these things, it's called private school. Get a fucking grip. There are Americans fighting and dying in two wars right now but yeah, lets bitch and moan about a 25 year old with a tongue ring. STFU.

"Now I am not old and I am not prude, but when the first thing my kid says off the bus their first day of school is about the teacher's tounge that is pierced, I about hit the roof!

I then come to find out, other parents are not pleased, one even pulled their kid out of the class!

A call to the school got me nowhere. There is no dress code for teachers. "Fitting to their environment" was what I was told. Thanks to the Teacher's Union.

A call to FCPS HR, confirmed all this. No policy, I should aim to resolve with the principal. A follow-up call was made and the principal advised me thatthey talked with the teacher and she was supposedly upset by the whole deal. Boo hoo.

I have a reasonable expectation to be able to send my kid to school and have them exposed to a safe and secure place where learning is facilitated. The tounge piercing was reported to me as a distraction. I heard other partents also making comments.

The principal told me not to talk with other parents about this so there was not a mass exit from that classroom. I was assured the teacher is wonderful and while I am not debating that, I know there is a time and place for everything, and a tounge piercing, or any other suggestive piercing should remain OUT of a classroom of a public school, dress code, or not.

I cannot believe a dress code for teachers does not exist. I read the student handbook, and one is in there for sure, if you are a student."

From your first sentence, it appears you are a helicopter parent. It is also apparent that you don't know how to spell "tongue" which is pretty damned funny since you are complaining about education. Personally, I think having a parent who is too stupid to spell the word "tongue" as an adult would be more detrimental than a tongue ring, but that's just my opinion. The fact that you were only motivated to action after you found out other kids' parents were upset indicates that you are a follower and probably a jealous, gossipy old nag. The fact that you called HR demonstrates that you have too much time on your hands: suppose you were out working or learning how to spell instead of phoning an office about your teacher's jewelry? Further, you seem to not be aware that sentences require subjects as evidenced by the pathetically inadequate phrase "Thanks to the Teacher's Union." That is what is called a fragment, so at this point you look like a helicoptering, nagging, gossipy, jealous old hag who can neither write nor spell despite having too much time on your hands.I'll bet your husband has either left you or works 100 hours a week to keep away from you, and I can understand why. This is mere speculation, but let me tell you what I know for sure: you are now seen as a pain in the ass to the school, and people are most likely laughing at you behind your back. Further, your kid is now known as one who has a troublemaking, intrusive mother and people will try to avoid getting him/her. I hope your griping about a young teacher was worth that, because you have now earned it.
This county has some of the best teachers in the country in it, and we have not gotten a raise nor a cost of living increase in three years. We knew we weren't going to get rich coming in, and I will be the first to admit that some teachers are pathetic at their jobs. However, most of us bust our asses and just ask to be left alone unless there is a serious beef- so how about doing it?

Well guess what you’re not a rocket scientist! Nobody in these professions went into them to get rich either. In fact most of us don’t get rich in a job. Welcome to life.

Clerical office workers, accounting staff, retail clerks, dental hygienists, paralegals, computer programmers, coaches, policemen, fire fighters, flight attendants, editors, electricians, waiters, project managers, HR directors, nurses, blah blah blah

So why use that line?

Biggest difference is these employees don’t have your guaranteed retirement at taxpayers’ expense and a job for life. No raises. BOO HOO Do you know how many people are out of work or have taken pay cuts.

Learn how to use commas you ignorant fool. Also, pick up a book on logic moron, I was talking about a specific profession- one in which computer jockeying parents with nothing to do can blame their failure as parents on teachers in an anonymous manner. End your questions with question marks.

Be sure to save one of those bitch-slaps for yourself. Ending a sentence in a preposition is incorrect. Did it hurt?

Still not a prep. It's part of the infinitive verb form "to do" and you don't need to state the implied verb form, especially when it is inside of a noun clause being used as a direct object . I can to WHAT? Noun clause - "Whatever I want to" functioning as the direct object. Next! Any more education and I will have to start charging you. There is NO object of a prep needed there since it is NOT being used as a prep.

Thank you!

It always amazes me when people who are annoyed by threads take the time to WRITE BACK. How does that make sense? That said, the Sparta remark was clever.

It seriously pisses me off when lame brains like the op here take time out of their day to bitch that a teacher has a tongue ring. What the FUCK do you think is going to happen to your child? Do you think as a result of a piece of metal in someone's tongue your child is going to lose all sense of morality and wander blindly into some moral cesspool? Do you think that the tongue ring will catalyze a deicide, and the stories about some invisible arbiter who resides in heaven and judges our every action will seem less credible (how could THAT happen)? At the site of the tongue ring, will your child morph into a rabid nymphomaniac hell bent on performing fellatio on the casual passerby? Get with the times for god's sake and let your kid live his/her life.

If you had READ the thread, before commenting, you would realize that it is the husband writing. Next class, comprehension. It's very important!

Can we clean up that "works 100 hours a week". Damn your face must be red from the slapping.

Closed thread for me. It's not about you. Get back to class. The original poster opined on a subject of concern in the classroom. Grow up. If you are a teacher you could have gone a long way to ease the concerns of this parent but instead started with insults, bitching about what your paid, how hard you work, the gamut.

Wow, this thread made it back from the dead...

The teacher did not return to the elementary school for 2009/2010. The Principal had told me, given the opportunity to hire teacher, she wouldn't have done so based upon having the tongue piercing. The teacher was brought on by a previous Principal and as suggested in an earlier post by another, the union would back the teacher and the piercing.

As for some of the other comments made during the course of this thread, I remain proud to be conservative. I am a lifelong resident of this fine county and try to look past the transient transplants who have forever changed this place from how it once was. However, we'll save that for another topic...

At any rate, the teacher is gone. Good riddance!

I really have a handle on things. I know it doesn't seem like it, since I'm so busy correcting others but I am the teacher. Yes, I know my vocabulary seems limited in this post, for example, a teacher using the words FUCK (in caps, no less),bitch and "pisses me off"; the fact that I'm going on a tirade to begin with when it could be a teaching moment, but I digress, I'm am teaching your kids gooder!
Trust me! Did I mention I didn't get a raise?

Look, a lot of what I said yesterday comes from the fact that I just love to argue with people, and everyone here needs to admit that it was kind of fun. In reality, perhaps wearing a tongue ring to school was not the best idea of all time: whether it is right or not, it is always advisable to be cognizant of the reaction your choices will make. I see this with students all the time: they do something to deliberately draw attention to themselves and then act shocked when they get negative attention. It's the way things go.
From my personal perspective, I have a ton of tattoos which are always covered, I wear jeans as often as possible and I do have a proclivity for profanity- even in the classroom (I also listen to Howard Stern a lot BABABOOEY). However, I have never received a complaint and, by and large, I think it is because people realize that I work in a PUBLIC school and my behavior ( and theirs) contribute to the norms and mores of our society. Still, I think there is an unreasonable expectation on the part of some that THEIR belief systems will be upheld within the realm of public education, and that view is myopic, misguided, and reprehensible. From my perspective, to charge into a school because of a teacher's fashion accessories is stupid. Perhaps the teacher in question was just being young and trying to balance her new profession with her personal life: I sincerely hope that a good educator wasn't chased out of the profession based on a few parents' personal feelings.

Nobody 'chased' her or him anywhere, they CHOSE to FIGHT the issue like there is some noble or valiant reasoning behind wearing a piece of jewelry/ body art with sexual undertones, UNECESSARILY around CHILDREN, in a TAXPAYER SUPPORTED PUBLIC SCHOOL when the parents that pay his/her salary expressed concern.

The teacher was not in violation of a dress code. There is nothing suggestive about a tongue ring per se- it is a value placed on it from the outside. Granted, when you choose to adorn yourself with such items, you really shouldn't be surprised when you get a negative reaction, but still she was not violating anything besides common sense. Sexuality is VERY pervasive in schools because it is ubiquitous in society at large. I work in a high school and you can take my word for it, We even have milk advertisements in which Taylor Swift appears with a bare midriff and a pose that could be construed as suggestive. While most elementary schoolers would recognize the connotations of the milk ad, I doubt as many would see a tongue ring as something sexual. My point is people don't cease being individuals once they enter the school- it is not up to us to dress the way YOU want us to and, barring something excessive, it wouldn't be grounds for dismissal. There should not ( and are not) mandates about the way we need to dress as sartorial considerations are subjective unless they go WAY out of bounds- a tongue ring doesn't do that in the eyes of the county. Again, I sincerely hope that the teacher in question did not abandon the profession because she felt persecuted for a personal fashion choice.

If you are the original teacher poster, I wish that had been your answer in the first post. There are plenty of threads deserving of your arguments. In this case I felt a parents concern was marginalized when we all should be working together to resolve problems. Have a good one. Spell Checked:) Move on

Guess what?

The Taxpayers are a public school teachers employer.
The Parents are the TAXPAYERS!
LIKE IT OR NOT they are your BOSSES if YOU CHOOSE TO TAKE A JOB TEACHING AT A PUBLIC SCHOOL. Take that shit to a private school and see if they allow it there. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR NOT HAVING GUIDELINES AS TO WHAT IS ACCEPTABLE DRESS FOT TEACHERS AND IF THERE IS NOT THIS MUST CHANGE.

The fact that this was fought so adimately by the teacher instead of just removing the piece of offensive jewelery means one of two things:

EITHER THE TEACHER WAS TRYING TO START UP AN ATTENTION-WHORE MEDIA FRENZY OR HE/SHE DID HAVE ALTERIOR MOTIVES FOR MAKING SUCH A DISPLAY WHILE ON THE JOB TEACHING CHILDREN AND COLLECTING A CIVIL SERVANT'S PAYCHECK.

You are right, the tongue piercing was NOT in violation of any dress code. I had a chat with the Principal about that matter and was advised, "you can thank the Teachers Union" (for having a lax dress code).

Regarding the teacher, I heard she went to another school in the county. Gone, but not far enough... Am I (and other parents who thought it was a load of BS) supposed to care what the teacher thought? Wasn't it HER, who made the choice to pierce her tongue? Thought so...

No, you , of course, aren't required to care. The principal was passing the buck , by the way, as he/she CAN ask for a school employee to modify his/her appearance. If the principal DID do that the teacher COULD have appealed to the union, but most of us would never do that as it brings unwanted attention. One of the best teachers at my school is a young woman who has a "sleeve" tattoo on her arm. If people were put off by her tattoo to the extent that they avoided her class or complained so much that she left the school, they would be missing out on a great teacher. The question often becomes which would you rather have: a person who is a great teacher but has an aspect of her appearance you disagree with or a mediocre teacher with an appearance you consider acceptable? I, of course, don't know the person in question, maybe she was an awful teacher anyway, but with the people that teaching attracts I think you better focus more on who cares about giving your child a great education rather than some trifling aspect of appearance.

Okay lets dumb this down for dumb at heart.

Teacher chooses to wear a questionable/ offensive piece of JEWELRY she could have IMMEDIATELY REMOVED on the spot when she was informed it irritated/offended PARENTS of the STUDENTS SHE IS WAS BEING PAID TO TEACH in a PUBLIC SCHOOL. Thats like a teacher being asked to remove thier fucking baseball cap and making a BIG WHOOPDEE DOO about it citing no dress code and the fact that your a teacher so you should be able to do whatever you want because only the students(RIGHT NOW) have to abide by a dress code. See this dumbshit teacher transfered to a place that might not be bitching now, BUT WHAT HAPPENS IF THEY DO CONFRONT HER IN THE NEAR FUTURE? IS THIS BITCH GONNA STOP TEACHING OR SOMETHING FOR HER VALIANT CAUSE?

THIS JUST GOES TO SHOW THAT MOST PEOPLE WITH DUMBASS BODY PIERCINGS ARE JUST AS DUMB ON A WHOLE, AS THIER FUCKING PIERCED NOSES, LIPS, AND TONGUES LOOK.
