    Unless you were the mayor of Toronto; being seen with a beer in his hand would be the least of his troubles right about now.

    I'm just curious Sarge-did you sign a release for pics of you to be published? Or do they not have to do that anymore?

    I honestly don't know what would happen. I've never heard of a teacher here that got in hot water over pics.

    I signed a standard waiver for the ride itself. I guess there might be a clause about media coverage in there somewhere.

    For my district this would be a non-issue. It might even earn a person some extra points for being cool enough to chill with the mayor. :)

    I was at a workshop a couple of months ago. A photographer came in, took pictures and asked names & I think school. We didn't sign a waiver.

    That seems to be pretty standard around here.

    At my school parents sign a waiver if they don't want their child's picture taken. Any picture. Including a school picture that they pay for.

    Sarge, I think in your situation it's understandable and nothing should happen. If I'm at an event for a good cause & a picture of me gets snapped & I have alcohol in my hand okay. I really don't want a casual picture of me drinking out there. I see a difference there.

    Small world Sarge - I do believe we are from the same town.

    Slightly off topic, but I wonder if there's a difference in perception between behaviors of secondary teachers vs. behaviors of elementary school teachers.

    Personally, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

    I have, however, done pub crawls with friends for various causes (most recent was breast cancer research). I often run into the parents of my students during these events. I choose to not be in the group picture for the paper because I don't want there to be incorrect assumptions about how much I drink or rumors about how often I hit the bar.

    You were off the school clock and are above the drinking age. You were also doing some community service and being toasted for you hard work as an athlete. I might not put that article in my classroom, but definitely in the faculty lounge.

    My kids would certainly make comments but I don't think it'd be a big deal.

    It wouldn't be a big deal here. In fact, the mayor of the town I work in is an employee of the district!

    My principal would say, "Cool! Waterfall is in the paper!"

    In my county, about half of all the county commissioners have ended up in jail/prison in the last few years. A representative was found to have solicited young male pages in Washington. Principals have been found to have had relationships with students..... It would be a breath of fresh air to see someone pictured with just a drink in hand.

    I'd add that into my artifacts to gain points for "interacting with the community" under danielson :)

    My principal is fairly "old-school" and deeply religious. I still cannot imagine it being any issue whatsoever. Teachers and administrators regularly go out for drinks after school on a Friday.

    Why would it be an issue for you but not the mayor?
