In this episode, I delve into the challenging world of teachers’ off-duty actions and their digital footprint, uncovering a real-life case that rocked a Kansas school and led to a teacher’s dismissal. I explore how a series of TikTok videos had far-reaching consequences, including classroom content creation that crossed boundaries, all while dissecting the school district’s social media policy and its implications for personal responsibility, discretion, and professionalism. The bigger picture is that this issue extends beyond teachers; it touches on the wider world of employment and social media use. If you’re a teacher interested in the intricacies of professional conduct, this episode is for you.
