What: A New Jersey administrative law judge ruled that a first-grade teacher who wrote that she was a “warden for future criminals” on Facebook should lose her tenured job.

How: Paterson teacher Jennifer O’Brien posted her remark to 333 friends on March 28. But it was forwarded and several parents saw it.

Why: O’Brien testified she wrote the post in exasperation because several students kept disrupting her lessons and one boy had recently hit her. She is appealing the ruling.
