Meet Kimberly Hester, the teacher’s aide in Michigan who was fired for posting a humorous photo on Facebook. The culprit is the Lewis Cass Intermediate School District in Michigan. Read about Kimberly and tell us what you think in the comments.
The school asked for Kimberly Hester’s Facebook password so they could snoop around her account. She refused and was threatened in a letter with termination. The school district suspended her when she would not back down from her constitutional right to privacy.
This unbelievable case started in April 2011 when Kimberly borrowed some clothing from a coworker. She then posted a humorous photo of the woman’s pants and shoes around her ankles near the floor. There is no nudity and almost no skin showing. It is merely a practical joke, appropriate for children of all ages. The caption read “thinking of you” which apparently caused one parent to complain to the school.
You can see the controversial Kimberly Hester Facebook picture in this video. Man is it nothing! She is promising a lawsuit to fight for her job back. An arbitration hearing is scheduled for May 2011. Her Facebook page is located right here
For her biography, Kimberly Hester is a 27 year old teacher’s aide in Michigan. She has long brown hair with light blue eyes and a beautiful smile. She also has a tiny but very tasteful nose ring pierced into the side of her nose. You know how such pretty things can get the attention of dads and the wives who watch them like hawks. My guess is a mom had been obsessing with Miss Hester’s Facebook page and complained with the photo was posted. But what do I know.
Tell us what you think of Miss Hester and her plight. Do school districts have a right to demand the passwords of their teachers? We think not, and we think you agree.
