Can i just say before i start, ive never been in trouble at school at all before this incident. Ive had a fabulous relationship with students and teachers and have got them through bad times over the last 4 years. My mistake has been to post pictures of school events on facebook (which have been set to private so only students can access them) ad to have students as friends. However, i spoke to my head about this and she had advised to put them into student groups which i did. however, the major issue is twitter. I ha blocked all students from following me but didnt realise that if you log out you can still see my twitter. They have had access to conversations which the school deem inappropriate, i.e. conversations with my friends on twitter which i didnt think anyone else could see and have see one remark by the school which was derogatory. I know ive been an idiot, but i honestly believed that 10 my tweets were protected 2) i had no student followers and had actually blocked them all. I have been suspended and have a hearing at the end of april. i assume that i am going to be sacked over this but wanted any messages of hope i love my job and would do nothing to harm the students and have actually used facebook with their knowledge to help students with coursework without which they would have failed. I am gutted and embarrassed that they have seen these convos many of the remarks came from friends rather than myself. The added problem is that i let my union membership lag and so cant get help from them. i feel like ending it all at the moment as ive been off for the last 6 weeks with stress over a partners assault and feel that they are looking for a wat to dismiss me.
