Yesterday I posted to vent about a situation at my school where they somehow got on my Facebook and pulled stuff to use against me, even though the situation at hand immediately had nothing to do with Facebook. I was asked to remove postings on it, but I deleted my whole account instead. But now I'm wondering if they're even allowed to ask me to delete, because: 1) I never used student, teacher, or admin names 2) I don't see what's wrong with saying something like "The worst child in my class was absent today, yay for an easy day!" or asking for advice from teacher friends (not necessarily teacher friends in my district or at my school--and if I did ask for help it was again without mentioning names ("I have a student who..." or "How can I motivate my class because they are doing X, Y, and Z when I'm trying to teach and admin is no help"). 3) My situation at work was so horrible--like absolutely no admin support. I had posted something like "Wrote up a kid this morning. Now he's back in my class disrupting again this afternoon when he should've been sent to ISS." etc. but again NO NAMES. 4) Anything I did say was in this super ridiculous filter with only like the best of the best people (closest people I am friends with in real life) and only those people could view anything I said, it wasn't all blasted to like 500+ friends. I just don't understand this and I'm wondering if I have a free speech case here. And sub point: does this mean they are going to bug my house to make sure I don't talk to my spouse? Have paparazzi follow me to make sure I don't drink beer at restaurants or wear a bikini on vacation (things teachers have been fired for just because they are a teacher and it is "inappropriate")? I am just reeling over all this!
