Blogging teacher: Nobody was 'rude' on first day

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. - The Pennsylvania teacher temporarily suspended after calling her students "utterly loathsome" and "disengaged, lazy whiners" was back on the job for the first full day of school, although with fewer students than normal.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Natalie Munroe taught three classes Wednesday with a total of 35 students, about a third the usual number. A substitute was brought in to teach some students who transferred out of her classes.

The Central Bucks High School East teacher had been suspended in February after administrators discovered insulting posts about her students on her personal blog. The posts included comments she wished she could post on student evaluations, including "rat-like" and "dresses like a street-walker."

Munroe told the Inquirer there was some pointing and whispers, but nobody was "rude."
