Saw a pic of a child with bruises up and down her arm and one of the teachers in her classroom is posting bruises on Facebook when working on the job and no phones as it states n the teacher handbook. Posting bruises on kids when they should b reporting this behavior it's like they don't care all u know the teacher could have done that to the kid. Posting a pic of bruise and being on Facebook that's a privacy issue wonder how many parents don't know kids are being posted on FB. When the teacher should b worried about teaching. Failure to report abuse from a teacher and allowing it to b on FB not normal behavior of a 2 nd grade teacher
